While drinking, I busted a myth on Friday night. People say free beer tastes better. Nope, it does not. If it is Bud, it will never taste better. I don't care if you are paying me to drink it. It will always taste bad. Like Bud does. I felt egged on into drinking a Bud on Friday. Note: I drank half a bottle before my stomach forced me to stop. I went down to Harvest Fair with the intention of having some nice micro brews. First stop though was in one of the halls for the World Beef expo tasting. Not a bad deal for $7. You stop by a number of stations and try whatever beef product they offered. The Machine Shed had the best dish, sirloin steak with some kind of sauce. The pot roast by Schwanns was good too. Some guy from Iowa had good jerky. There was some pizza, cookies and milk (I guess they wanted desert). Walking tacos and summer sausage. Included in the price were two beverage tickets that could be used for Coke or Bud products. First time around I had a Coke. Then as we were leaving, someone said I should get a beer. I objected but they then threw out that comment "Free beer always tastes good". Thus I have come full circle. Free Bud still tastes like crap.
Funny part was at one of the beverage counters, they had a bottle of Bud and Bud Light strapped to the pole to show what they were offering. Right above the Bud Light was another sign that read "Bottled Water". How appropriate!
