Dear cheapskate hipsters

Ha. Ha.

No really.

I have no issue with people drinking what they can afford. Certainly my own purchases have taken a turn for the cheaper in the past few months. But I wasn’t out there pretending that the beer I was drinking made me part of some kind of inner group; PBR, yeah, {and now we give the headshake}.

No. I like things that taste good and I’m willing to pony up an extra two quarters to get less beer if it tastes better.

Some people actually like PBR. I don’t know them but I am consistently told that they exist. Fine; your favorite beer has gone up in price because a bunch of idiots who want to be cool like your beer and the makers of PBR have decided it’s worth bilking them for it. Now you know how the rest of us feel when the really good beer we drink and want to share with our friends is shanghaied by people who are just drinking it ’cause it’s cool.

  1. Just got home. Just received the blog address.

    I have to say, you’ve become very consistent and above average in your beercraft. Whenever we go out, you recommend good beers and you can inform me about what I’m drinking in an interesting way: with history and lore about the beer.

    Thanks for the being “engaged” comment regarding our conversations. Makes me feel proud. Even when the conversations turn hot.

    Dad
