    Default New Beer For Coachella

    I don't know about everyone else but I think Heineken sucks.
    I would rather drink Bud/Bud Light.
    Maybe a Stella Artois?
    Anything not too heavy and not Heineken.
    Just no more f'n Dutch piss, please!

    I don't care about the beer brand, I just would like a dollar or two knocked off the price of it. Or a bigger cup.

    $7 a beer only gets you 2 beers with a $20 bill..

    I think a really fucking big cup/bucket like at ball games should be available. That'd be nice.

    i quite like heineken, i think its much better then bud! would rather have a carling or carlsberg though if i was given the choice.

    is $7 for a pint? don't think a bigger cup would be that great! unless of course you plan on smashing it! would be pretty hot quickly...

    warm beer would suck

    anyone that would prefer bud/bud light obviously likes shitty beer. and heineken is not german. but stella is german.

    yep you are right (just looked it up), i know i have a stella glass at home with what i thought was the german flag. aparantly the belgium and german flags are the same colors with the same 3 stripes just in a different order.

    sigh, i fail.

    The problem I have with Heineken is that as soon as it rises like.....one degree above 'ice cold' it's just gawd awful.

    I won't be drinking anything except water, so I really don't care. But Heineken is a better beer than Budweiser I think. Well, maybe it has a stronger taste so someone used to American beer would not like it?

    Is there only one choice? (I have not checked out the beer tent...)

    Asahi is pretty good.

    I know as far as the general pop beer gardens they only offer Heineken, i wonder if they have more beer selections in the vip beer gardens??

    It's $7 for a beer at Coachella, not $7 for a pint of beer, you get a cup, I'm not sure what the measurement is but it certainly isn't 568ml (1 UK pint of beer) It's probably the equivalent of a can so many oz.

    And surely Henienken (hell, even Bud) is better than Carling or Carlsberg, when the price is that high do you really want not quite a pint of 4.1% abv (carling) or carlseberg (which IIRC is 3.8% abv), at leas Heineken is at the 5% mark!

    It's all about value for money when your on the lash! Which is pretty difficult at Coach with the heat and the fact you can only drink in the bar areas.

    i think heine is a good beer for the festival. its lighter, which is good in the heat, but not as crappy as bud/coors. stella would be a good substitute though too. i like both.

    Agreed. Although we all love microbrews etc. you aren't going to be able to appeal to the masses, and gut rot will set in if you start ripping the IPAs and wheat beers etc.

    Stick with Heineken - not my favorite, but who cares after the third one anyway? In that heat anything tastes good.
