this really disturbed me....and my husband...who is a huge alton brown fan...<br><br><br><br>
we were browsing the beer section of our local harris teeter (grocery store), when we noticed an ad...it was alton brown offering up a miller lite...<br><br>
ugh...<br><br>
he can't seriously think that's good eats? or drinks, as it may be... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:"><br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.project-insomnia.com/2006/11/file-under-bad-eats.shtml" target="_blank">here's a link to to ad pic</a>

<span style="color:#008000;">There are much worse beers out there than Miller Lite. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></span>

That is pretty depressing. But he has depressed me before. I used to love watching his show (and sometimes still do) until I saw a few where he was praising meat and high fat butter, dairy, white sugar...stuff like that. I mean, he's supposed to be a food scientist, doesn't he know that stuff is really bad for you? I lost some serious respect for him there, so I guess I'm not completely surprised. But I have to agree that miller lite is a serious low (but I've grown up a beer snob too).

Oh brother! He's a food scientist (if there IS such a thing!) , he's never said he's a "health scientist" or nutritionist (and remember, even many of them are still convinced we need red meat for iron and cow's milk for calcium).<br><br><br><br>
Give him a little credit.<br><br><br><br>
What he does, he does very well, (beer choices aside) telling people the science behind WHY specific ingredients perform the way they do.

<span style="color:#008000;">You beer snobs have obviously never tried Drummond Brothers, Hamms or Minnesota's Best, then. Miller Lite is a shining beacon of yum compared to those. (And I'm not saying ML is the best beer out there, just to clarify. Just saying it's better than some)</span>

Miller Lite is delicious, when you consider the common college age alternatives, like Busch or Natural Ice.</div>

<br><br><br><span style="color:#008000;">Precisely the point I was trying to make. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></span>

Why are college aged people limited to Miller Lite or worse?</div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
Because we're poor!! Miller Lite is amazing...freaking Budweiser is a good day. We have a brewery in town, actually, were occassionally we get 1/2 gallons of beer when we have the money, and that is delicious. Usually, though, its Busch or Nattie so we can save like, $3. So yeah, its disgusting.
