3 07 2009

Someone will have to help me on this one.  I was under the impression the Michigan Brewing Company was working on a Kid Rock craft beer.  I’m assuming that is shelved now?  This  is from a Drinks America press release….

Kid Rock and Drinks Americas Announce “AMERICAN BADASS BEER COMPANY™” to be Born on the Fourth of July
AMERICAN BADASS BEER™ will be Launched at Kid Rock’s July 17-18th Weekend Shows at Comerica Park

WILTON, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Drinks Americas Holdings, Ltd.

As I understand it, Drinks America is distributing it but MBC won the contract to brew it. They took a $700,000+ tax credit from the State to help them win the contract. Apparently Kid Rock was wanting a sort of “All-American light beer” in the vein of Coors Light or Natural Light. Kind of odd that a brewery known for it’s quality craft beers would take on such an endeavor. MBC brews beer for beer snobs who wouldn’t touch a “light beer” with a ten foot pole. I wonder if they’ll touch this stuff…
