Default Guaranteed Rate Field switching to Bud Light

Miller Lt OUT. Bud Light IN. We're going to need a lot of beer this year, so this might be huge news for some of us.

@barstoolWSD with the report on twitter.

I pray to the heavens above that this is false.

YUCK.

Miller Lite is far from great- but for me Bud Light and Budweiser are undrinkable.

Also officially announced (coincidentally?), Modelo has been named the official import beer. There will be a new Modelo bar in the ballpark.

Yuck. Not that anyone should be drinking Bud, Bud Light, Miller or Miller Lite in this day and age of actual good beer.

If I'm at the ball game I want a nice light beer. Miller is perfect for that. I'm not going to drink a heavy IPA for $12.50

Are we sure Bud is in? The article that reported Modelo as the new sponsor did not mention Bud. Did WSD simply get the news that Miller is out and make the leap to assume Bud is in?

Not a bud guy. I'm not much of a craft guy, either, but a lot more craft beer is supposedly coming in, too. Pollyanna from Lemont is a great place I go to often. They're supposed to be announced soon.

If I have to drink a Lite/Light beer, I much prefer Miller to Bud. Bud Light is horrible. On the other hand, Modelo is decent beer on a hot summer night. Hopefully, the vendors will be selling it. I hate leaving my seat during a game.

You could drink the IPA before the game, then pee into a cup and have the same alcohol content and taste as the Miller Lite for free.

Alternatively, there are plenty of options at the park that are not heavy IPAs and are not garbage.

I think they switched back to the original recipe for Schlitz and it's not half bad. The problem is that they are pricing it like a premium beer. Strohs is still rust flavored water.

As long as you can still get 3 Floyds, and Revolution brews, I'm good.
