C'mon now Alton, Miller Lite?
The man who has for years chastised us for things like eating fast food and who so recently had an entire episode about using peppercorns is working with Miller Lite. I feel sold out. Now I'm not a beer snob, but Alton's integrity has just dropped a notch in my opinion for the simple fact that this is the type of product that he would normally rant about. I can't imagine a grocery store scene on Good Eats of Mr. Brown telling Chuck to put down the awful microbrew and grab a case of Miller Lite.
My question is why? Does he think it will really get 'manly men' to cook? Is he trying to expand his audience? Was it just the money? Is this the Food Network's doing? Couldn't he at least have gone with MGD instead of the 'lite?'
