A good pils is hard to beat, although I prefer something a bit hoppier. But
local preferences aside, "Bugweiser" is brilliant. I want to buy the Bugweiser
Best of all, googling "bugweiser" turns up no hits at all, so Nicolas can take
credit for it. And Ben gets the credit (and/or blame?) for provoking the idea.
Normally I would not be concerned with intellectual property rights in a
case like this, but when I think of the potential revenues from Bugwieser
T-shirts, I think it is important to give credit where credit is due.
