Anyone who drinks microbrewery beer also tends to:

1. Own a TV but haven't turned it on in years
2. Ride a bike to work wearing spandex stretch trousers
3. Watch Japanese children's cartoons on a Mac
4. Appreciate the warmth of vinyl phonograph records
5. Read books at Starbucks
6. Claim to prefer girls with small breasts
7. Make snide remarks about Wal-Mart.
8. Walk past a smoker and force pretentious coughing noises
9. Take comfort in believing size doesn't matter
10. Feign disgust at the idea of eating a Big Mac

whidbey: CADMonkey79: Politicizing a beer thread....farking amazing.

Oh shut up.

Seriously.

Help help I'm being OPPRESSED by people who call out the stupid shiat I buy into. .

whidbey: Makes total sense to me.

The USA is a dumbed-down, peer-pressure driven society of total ignorance. I mean, fark, it voted for farking Reagan. And both Bushes.

We're still suffering through the derp even in the supposedly modern enlightened age.

People are stupid, conservative, selfish and short-sighted in this country.

Farking deal with it.


Wow. good job politicizing a beer thread.

Fark beer threads. It's difficult to find such a highly concentrated combination of smug douchenozzles. The dude who said "Sometimes a 5 dollar 6 pack is the right tool for the job, and if you can't see that you're probably an asshole"has provided us with the Holy Grail of responses to these threads. Bravo!

As much as I despite Budweiser and Coors products, I have to admit that, on a hot day at the pool, a Bud Light Lime actually tastes pretty darned good. Don't get me wrong, I love me some craft beer, and I go to local brewery tap rooms all the time, but a hot crowded pool is neither the time nor the place for a heavy trippel or even something like a brown ale. It's all about context. That and I don't really want to spend $80 on beer for an afternoon at the pool.

Or you could drink a Sam Summer.


You could, but why would you want to?

Yeah, but if your (insert favorite obscure craft beer) starts outselling Budweiser, it will have become mainstream and you'll be forced to not like it anymore.

king_nacho: if you want to spend less than $20 an drink a case a beer, you can't do that on %INSERT FAVORITE CRAFT BEER HERE%.

I don't understand why this surprises anybody. Craft beers are expensive, and very few make light bodied beers, and by the time they make it to the local grocery store they aren't really craft brews anymore.


Sometimes a 5 dollar 6 pack is the right tool for the job, and if you can't see that you're probably an asshole.
