Drinkin' Heineken brew
Heineken is a Dutch pale lager — made from purified water, malted barley, hops, and yeast — and containing 5% alcohol. It was first brewed by Gerard Adriaan Heineken in 1873. Previously in the song, the Beasties were pulling Buds from the Miller cooler; now, they’ve switched to an imported brew, but the narrative does not explain why. Maybe they felt it was time for an upgrade.
