    So, Heineken wants to be the official beer of the New World Order. I had forgotten about that St. Patrick’s Day pandering to the sodomites thing. Thanks for reminding me not to drink Heineken (or Sam Adams, or-sigh-Guinness).

      Alas…

      You’re welcome.

      I noticed something a few years ago, at a bar in the Toronto area frequented by homeboys, wiggers, guidos, and Punjabis: they all liked soccer, and all drank Heineken.

      ‘Nuff said. 😉

        To quote Hank Hill: “Soccer was invented by European ladies to keep them busy while their husbands did the cooking.” As for Heineken, it would be a serviceable if unspectacular generic lager, if not for the abominable politics of the company. I spent a month in Israel back in 1999, and the only Western beers you could find at every bar were Heineken and Corona. So unless you wanted to drink weird beers with names like Tuborg and Five Star, or weird dangerously strong mixed drinks with names like “The Polish Butterfly”, you were drinking Heineken or Corona.

        Ugh. I dislike Heineken’s aftertaste, and I find Corona bland, and it gets skunky easily being in a clear bottle (why everyone adds lime, to mask that).

    Just found out that Murphy’s is Heineken owned, and it’s one of my favorites. Then again, most of these big companies are huge on leftist bullshit. Sam Adams, which is an overrated pseudo-craft label to begin with, has really tried to push a revolutionary, guerrilla image with their new packaging. Guinness backs sodomite garbage.
    All the smaller brewers are getting absorbed into conglomerates, the capitalist machine is doing its best to sell subversive and profitable ideas and destroy beauty wherever it may be found, and beer is quite beautiful.

    Also need to to recognize @CrusadingGionger on twitter for taking the photo and bringing this issue up.

      I like Murphy’s; sorry to learn that…

      Yes, I did get the pic off the internet, but I didn’t know its ultimate source. Good on that individual.

    Except that in large sections of the world selling a heineken can get you whipped half to death

      Yeah, that’s the part they conveniently forget…

      PBR is a better beer, anyway; doesn’t have that horrid aftertaste Heiny Ken does.

        It is, but I stick with its close cousin ‘gansett — gotta support local business. Heineken’s aftertaste — like Corona, it’s the skunking from the green bottle, no?

        On the international level, Hoegaarden’s got my money. They’re owned by Anheuser-Busch now, I guess, dunno where that puts them on the politi-meter… but they did do that immigrant commercial for the Superbowl.

        Oh, for sure! Support your local good craft brewery over any macro North American swill, definitely!

        Hoegaarden is a good beer. I don’t know what AB’s politics are, either. But Hoegaarden is still a Belgian ale, even if owned by a big multinational. I’d be more interested in knowing if AB in Belgium has attacked Vlaams Belang, for instance, than I’d care what AB is doing in America, if Hoegaarten was my go-to international beer.

        Maybe; Beck’s also has the same aftertaste, and uses a green bottle, too; I always thought only the clear bottles gave rise to skunkiness, because of direct light, esp. unfiltered UV, causing oxidation, but maybe green ones are problematic, too.

    I long ago stopped drinking beer produced by any of the major labels, so I guess this just confirms the wisdom of that decision. While I’ve become almost a teetotaller over the last three years, whenever I do want an occasional pint of fresh IPA, oatmeal stout, or bitter, I take my growler down to the local craft brewery and fill it up there. At least they keep their politics to themselves, if they have any convictions in that area.

      Yep. For reasons of quality and politics, craft beers are so much better…
