    As much as it pains me to say, I feel like this is a rare instance where macro beer outflanked craft by a healthy, healthy margin. Summer time kicks in and you have this readily available, extremely cheap, extremely drinkable ‘hot weather’ beer while craft is in an arms race for milkshake IPAs and putting donuts in their beers and otherwise losing sight of what will sell in mass quantity. I don’t want a $25 lactose IPA that has guava, vanilla, and a hint of cinnamon or some bullshit in it, when it’s 95 out.

    Where I think craft is finding a groove, and just as a personal preference hope they continue to hammer, is the resurgence of the regular lagers and ‘Mexican-style’ beers. I will buy cases upon cases of that to sit poolside or the beach and drink to my hearts content. Naturdays is fun and a novelty but not something I’m interested in drinking. However, I do think it’s a good chance to look in the mirror and realize how far to an extreme craft has recently veered from trying to find easily quaffable beers and starting to alienate a lot of people.

    Well put. I have not tried it nor had I planned to, unless, like with Zima and others, I am in a location that is giving free pours. For example I toured the Budweiser brewery a long time ago and they were sampling the excting Tequiza! The tequila (infused?) beer from AB. Now maybe I will try Naturdays, thanks for the review.
