Keystone Lite — and The Truth About Light Beers
Disclaimer: Don’t read this if you are offended by underage drinking… you tory…
Sorry Laura, but I had to do it. Your title reminded me of alcohol.
Some people believe that light beers such as Keystone Light and Coors Light are less alcoholic than say… a Samuel Adams Boston Lager or a Shiner Bock. Although this is sometimes true, light beers do not have significantly less alcohol content than full fledged beers, not counting specialty brews and stouts.
This is dangerous because some people are willing to drink more light beer than regular beer because they believe it contains less alcohol. This might cause them to well, to put it in GWU terms, get “emerged”.
So, the question is: why do people drink light beer? After all, it only tastes like water (as a best case scenario), and has the same alcohol content as a regular beer?
Here are my reasons:
1) It’s cheap. Lets face it. We’re college students and we can’t afford six packs all the time. (But in all honesty, I’d take quality over quantity any day.)
2) It has fewer calories. (Who counts calories these days? Then the Lord exclaimed: Thou Shalt Drink What Thou Wilt!)
3) It allows people to drink for the sake of getting drunk. (How anti-classy… tsk tsk)
