    All three of those beers are made in America, by Americans.

    Miller is even unionized.

    Yeah right, it's like saying don't buy gas from foreign gas producers. It's a global world. The breweries are in the US, the beer distributers are American, the truckers are American the people who work in the stores who sell the beer are American.

    Well, not exactly. It's publicly traded, there's really no way of knowing if it's "American-owned".

    At least a big chuck PBR of it is owned by SABMiller (British company that owns Miller) and MolsonCoors (Canadian company that owns Coors).

    It's kind of a moot point, all of the beers mentioned in the OP are brewed by Americans - all the breweries are here.

    Miller is union-made as well as PBR - and so is Red Dog.

    Or maybe not use Independence day as an excuse for getting drunk. Why not use the day to thank a veteran, teach your children what it means to have independence and the responsibilities that come along with it; we all love our freedoms...very few talk about the responsibilities that go along with it.
