|Totally stole this from some dude online.|
During my last visit to my favorite bar Avenue Pub a couple weeks ago I was at the downstairs bar and overheard some dude making fun of someone ordering a Miller Light. Yeah I'm sure sometimes I poke fun at the BMC guys or make fun of ladies who order beer that "tastes closest to Bud Light"(just order a Bud Light then) but I also have no problem drinking their product either and I'm careful what I say. In fact I have a 12 pack of Miller High Life in my fridge right now. I also have my wife, who is going on a trip to Texas next week, picking me up a case of Lone Star tall boys and looking for some Pearl in cans as well.
It drives me insane when I hear people state, "I don't touch BMC stuff it sucks!" or "This bar isn't a real bar if it carries macro swill." Blah, blah, blah. Get over yourself.
Don't get me wrong I enjoy seeing that craft beer is steadily gaining in sales. It's fantastic but I can't stand when I'm looked at funny when I order a Miller High Life or PBR from the bar. I LIKE Miller High Life so what? I can buy a 12 pack of Miller High Life for $8. That is about the same price as 1 six pack of craft beer. Sometimes I want something I can drink a lot of for cheap. It's like McDonalds or Rallys(Rally's is awesome. Checkers to all you Yankee readers.) Sometimes I don't want a fancy burger that costs me $15. I just want a double bacon cheeseburger, large fries and goddamn litre of cola. And no I don't want it Dimpa sized for a quarter.(If you don't get the last 2 sentences you have some movie watching to do.)
And think about this for a second. If you are bashing macro beers at a bar you could be bashing some dudes favorite beer who just might have been thinking about trying that new local, craft beer that just came out. You just made yourself look like the pretentious douche you are and may have just turned off a potential new craft beer consumer. So thanks a lot beer snob. You sir a douche and are actually hurting the craft beer movement. So think before you open your big douchey mouth again.
