Damn, that Saint-Ambroise is a good Microbrew.

A microbrew loses its exclusive status when bought out by large corporately funded breweries or it is distributed nationally.
New Belgium Brewing Company used to make microbrews but since becoming a widely popular beer company its brews have changed status and become premium (American) domestic beers.

Generally repulsive, always over-priced skull-splitting hangover inducing sewer water consumed by trendy college metro-homos who think it's production is superior to mainstream beer. Because some dude's garage brewery definitely adheres to a higher quality standard than any publicly traded, legitimate beer company.
Hey, this i a great micro brew! I wonder what'll hurt worse tomorrow- the hangover or my raped asshole?
