    Kid Rock-Branded Beer Coming Soon!



    I'm pretty sure this falls under the category of "What Were They Thinking?"

    Kid Rock Branded Beer Coming Soon
    by Spanno on September 29, 2008

    Next Spring, you'll be able to enjoy a "premium domestic beer" branded with Kid Rock's name and/or likeness. The Dayton Daily News reported yesterday that Drinks America Holdings Limited, the makers of Donald Trump vodka and Willie Nelson bourbon signed a brew deal with "singer" Kid Rock.

    Said company CEO J. Patrik Kenny, "Kid Rock is a reflection of great American rock 'n' roll music and the American spirit, and we think we can create a beer in that same image." I'm going to assume he's referring to Lynyrd Skynyrd-ripoff Kid Rock and not pseudo-rapping Kid Rock.

    While Mr. Rock does remind me of a 70's rocker (minus the talent), I don't see the need for another brand of 70's-style crappy American beer. Our collective taste in beer has shifted dramatically since then. Yes, Bud Light and Miller Light still dominate the market, but microbrews have exploded to the point that the largest beer makers are getting in the action with their own brands of craft brews. Kid Rock's beer will undoubtedly harken back to our watered-down roots. Afterall, the guy lives on cigarettes, Budweiser, and stripper sweat. Does anyone really think he'd put his name on something tasteful?

    Lame beer for a lame guy. Thanks.....PAUL.

    Someone needs to ask 'CEO J. Patrik Kenny' what kind of a golden parachute clause he has in his contract. And if he gets some obscene dollar amount after he runs his company into the ground with THIS stellar idea, I say we hang him with it.

    When I think Kid Rock beer, I think Old Style.

    When I think Kid Rock beer, I'm thinking they're pouring 35 year old Budweiser in a new can and putting "Kid Rock" on the side of it.

    Speaking of 35 year old Budweiser, I was at my grandmother's place in Rhode Island this summer when I stumbled upon this old paper bag behind some dishes in the garage. Well, low and behold, I open the bag and it's on old, and I mean REALLY old, six pack of Bud with the old style "Pull-off" tabs on them! I swear, I had just enough in me that I wanted to pop one open and pound it but I was scared to think what might happen to me! Can canned beer "go bad"?

    Oh yeah it can. I bought a case of Fosters once that was sitting on the shelf too long from a hick party store. It was brutal.

    Cool find, though. When did BUD and others go away from the tabs?? Early eighties??

    I believe this commercial pretty much sums it up

    Oh yes, it can get pretty skunky after sitting for that long. Better off selling it than drinking it.
