third shift

Postby speed » Tue Jan 29, 2013 6:23 pm

found this beer in a small liquor store in alliance nebr. its an amber lager made by 'band of brewers' from fort worth texas-trenton Oh. i thought it was unusual that it was displayed in with the bud miller coors and it didn't take long with a little google search to find out it is made by millercoors. not a bad beer if you want a lawnmower beer but disappointed that they are sneaking beer into the craft market.
What will be will be.

That beer is actually big in Florida. They sell it in every corner store here in Jacksonville.

Sounds like another Batch 19. I went to Bevmo for their Friday beer tasting and there was a girl from Coors pushing Batch 19 pre-prohibition lager. It was okay but it was kind of like Coors with more hops or more like PBR. I would have said what I really thought of the beer but she was pretty cute and didn't want o knock her product.

And this is why the marketing feedback never translates to sales.

"The product seemed to generate really great feedback from all the people that tasted it"

"So how come no-one bought it after the free samples?"

"It must have to do with the label"
