I don't get the hard seltzer thing,

But if Terry is a fan they must be wonderful

It's for people who want to get drunk, but who think light beer is too tasty. 

 

And there is a reason for the explosion of these alco-pops, the vile concoctions like hard lemonade, hard seltzer, hard iced tea, etc., the last 15 or 20 years. A guy at a beer tasting told me once that it's due to tax law: fermented beverages are taxed at a way, way lower rate than distilled spirits, so these awful macro breweries take advantage of that with these fizzy booze sodas, which are taxed like beer, and not like whiskey. 

 

And, in conclusion, **** Wayne. In the neck. :th:

They our taxed like beer, not whiskey, you moran. :dismay:

 

Google "White Claw Tax Policy Josh Barro" and you'll find an article from New York Magazine (I read 'em all!) that spells it out. But here is the nut graf: 

Because White Claw is brewed like beer, it’s taxed like beer, which is important because beer is taxed in the U.S. at a much lower rate than spirits. If you made a product similar to White Claw by mixing vodka with seltzer and putting it in a can, a six-pack would be subject to almost $2 in additional taxes when sold in New York City.
 
Don't you ever get tired of being wrong all the time? :dismay:

If I had to choose between drinking only white claw for the rest of my life or death by ungabunga, I'd take the latter.

With gusto.
