    Weird that Natty Light came out with one before Bud Light.

    No, I don't remember when Original New York Seltzer was only flavored seltzer around because it never was the only flavored seltzer around.

    Hard seltzer is big in the last few years. Boston Beer Company got into it just like it did with cider a while back.

    It is kind of amazing to see these drinks come and go because they are all the same shit, just in different packages. Wine coolers started out as wine, but became a malt beverage to save costs. Zima, Smirnoff Ice, and now hard seltzer are the same things, just cheap malt beverages with any color removed and flavor added.

    Top selling alcoholic drink in America - hard seltzer.

    I seem to remember that stuff being everywhere for a while when I was a kid.

    I like the trend. In Virginia, ciders are regulated as wine, so a craft brewery can only really serve beer. Now they can make something for non-beer-drinkers because the seltzers are just malt beer, and they know it will sell.

    Those seltzers knock you on your ass quickly. Down two of them in an hour and you’re out of commission for a while.

    They are trendy, but they also get the job done and are nominally better for you than beer.

    Seltzer... the answer to, and cause of, all life’s problems.

    That lost it’s ring.

    Little mom and pop store I went to as a little kid carried it.
