poe_zlaw: It's hilarious how hipsters strike such a chord with so many Farkers.... And you all express how you hope they dont screw up your own hip version of PBR. How cute

Quiet. It's not about screwing up these people's "own hip version of PBR", it's about artificial price gouging of what used to be a relatively inexpensive product due to the fact that it has become a status symbol of a rather annoying subculture full of condescending people. There is a good thing about these Hipsters though, it helped PBR survive as an American company that is not owned by a foreign corporation and the Craft Beer phenomenon is making liquor purchasing and drinking a more diverse hobby for the larger society; but still, many Hipsters are still condescending arseholes and deserve the "Hipster Hate"!

Igor Jakovsky: Where do you guys live that you can get 30 of anything for less than $15? Florida doesn't even have 30 packs and the average price of natty, busch or pbr is $12 for 18

You live in a state that meets its tax needs via a sales tax, and does not have a personal income tax, coupled with a relatively (VERY, compared to where I live) low property tax. This format puts a larger burden on tourists, but it also means that you pay more for things like booze.

You wanna see cheap liquor? Go to a "welfare" state that has a bunch of federal land, and gets federal monies to compensate (you cant tax federal land). Montana is a good example. Liquor prices there blow my mind. A $1 shot of cinnamon whisky was an all-the-time deal at two bars I hit up. You couldnt get a shot of barmat water for a buck where I live.

God-is-a-Taco: Huh, so PBR was popular with the working class and now it's popular among the yuppie hipster douches because they can condescend merely by holding it in their hands.
Hipsters really are scum.

That's the jist of it. And they wonder why people have such visceral hate for them-- when the pretend to like something "ironically" they're really dissing it.

Hagbardr: That's why I drink Genny Cream Ale. It's $13.99/30 where I live. I'll be pissed when the hipsters discover it because I was drinking it before it was cool.

Very sweet, but not bad considering the price. Little darker hue than any miller product ive compared it to at least, and its somehow hangover free. Theres also boxer ice which tastes a little better, is 5.5% instead of 5% and is the same price.

AverageAmericanGuy: I don't even drink beer anymore. It's gotten way too popular.

It's bottom shelf vodka for me these days.
