The Real Budvar aka Budweiser

For the last month in Thailand I drank nothing but Leo Beer, the occasional Singha and Khang beers, and Khong Tong whiskey in Ban-nok and Sri Racha. My taste buds had been ruined after five months of Belgian and Czech beers in Mittel Europa and this afternoon I'm supping on a Budvar, the original Budweiser, which has been brewed since 1785 in České Budějovice. In a classic case of intellectual property theft Anheuser-Busch expropriated the name Budweiser brand in 1876 setting up a copyright dispute, which Budweiser USA resolved with a cash payment to Budvar.A cop would have hold a gun to my head to force me to drink Budweiser USA.To quote Monty Python - "We find your American beer like making love in a canoe. It's fucking close to water."Or even better."Why is American beer served cold? So you can tell it from urine." - David MoultonBudvar's lager on the other hand backs up what Plato said over 2000 years ago, ""He was a wise man who invented beer."It is so true, if you take Budweiser out of the equation.It sucks.After the Great Britain Beer Festival, in London, all the Presidents of the brewreys decide to go to the pub for a drink. The Coors President said "Can I have the only beer made with Rocky Mountain Spring Water: a Coors, please."The bartender gave him the drink. Then the Budweiser President orders, "The King Of Beers - Budweiser."The bartender proceeds with the order. The Amstel President walks in and orders "The Finest Beer ever."The bartender gives him an Amstel.Then the Guinness President says, "I'll have a coke please."The bartender is taken aback by this but gives the coke to him anyway.All the Presidents looked over at him and said, "Why have you ordered a coke?"He replied, "Well if you all aren't drinking beer, then neither shall I."source: http://www.jokebuddha.com/Budweiser#ixzz1jt54Y8nn
