BEER!

We love it. And you've voted. See which is the best American beer city.

Remember the good ole days when beer commercials didn't portray women as shrewish, crazyfaced people? When they would flop around in congo lines, usually string bikini-clad? According to Erin Gibson, host of Current TV's show Modern Lady, those days are over. "Women in beer commercials have gone from big-boobied eye candy to the enemy." (And that "to the enemy" part was in a slow-mo voice, which there should be a font for.) According to Gibson, humiliating ladyfolk physically or psychologically is the norm for beer companies these days. Have you noticed a shift in the representation of women in beer ads?
