Budweiser 9/11 commercial only aired once

Subject: Budweiser 9/11 commercial only aired once


This is a class act, must see television commercial!

Notice that the World Trade Center Buildings are gone.

This is the commercial spot Budweiser produced after 9-11.

They only aired it once so as not to benefit financially from it, they just wanted to acknowledge the tragic event.

GOD BLESS AMERICA

Yeah, I don't know if it's the wheat or water. Bud also produces Keirin?(sp). Sold in Japanese steakhouse near me. Does the same thing. Hence the reason for drinking good beers such as Dogfish head, Stone Brewing Co. and the like. I love me some nice hoppy brews.

Are you talking bottles or draft? I drink it bottled. Draft... no way, headache.

Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is my favorite and Coors light for a thirst quencher and when I have to be good.
You know they say, Coors light is like drinking water and no headache even after many

I feel pain and anger every time I see a photograph or video of that day. The commercial was done tastefully, and serves as a reminder whether you like Budweiser, Coors, Fat Tire or Mountain Dew.

Bud gives me terrible headaches too. I think I even started a whiny thread about it here awhile back. Anyway, I drink Coors lite or wine (go ahead, laugh, call me a girl, but I'm comfortable in my manhood, thank you)

Hold on a minute, Bottle or Draft? Lets be clear on this. Bear, you can drink anything you want (even a fine German beer like Bud) and nobody's sayin nothing, errr... you don't drink tea, do you?

Oop's, sorry I didn't answer you question. For me, Bud in the bottle or the can, Bud or Bud light, it gives a headache. I don't remember if I ever had a draft But and I'm not willing to try it.
So there you have it, Love the Clydesdale horses though.

Yep! Love tea. Iced tea, that is, sweet of course!

I stopped drinking draft MANY years ago. Just didn't like the taste. It wasn't until later that the headaches started. I drink 90% of my beer from a bottle. Every now & then I'm forced to drink from a can. Doesn't seem to matter, though. I did a little googling, and there's a theory out there that the yeast or hops cause the headaches. It's been awhile, so you might wanna double check my facts, but makes sense to me.

I have a bud light every now & then when I'm with friends, but if I have 3, headache city. Bud & bud light seem to be the worst. I rarely drink beer any more because of the headaches. Even coors light gives me a headache sometimes. Shame too, I really like beer.


Here you go, I found the whiny beer headache thread...

Funny, most beers (Micro brews) I prefer in the bottle, or better on tap. But Coors light, Ice cold in the can is the only way for me, don't like it in the bottle. Fact, Ice tea causes men to get kidney stones. So Bear, you better stay with beer. Ha! Bear on a Bicycle with a Beer!
