Dan's Nightmare

Late last Saturday night I ended up at the Cork Lounge which is right by the Addison and Lincoln brown line stop (remodeled). As it turns out they have a great beer selection, with lots of beers on tap and in bottles all on a giant blackboard, but two signs caught my eye.



And they were playing "The Devil's Rejects" by Rob Zombie on one TV and one of those SyFy movies with a giant Alligator. A lot of distractions from bad beer.

.75 cans of Blatz. Yummo!

I wanted Blatz on the last crappy beer challenge but couldn't find single cans of it. May have to buy a sixer for the crappy beer sequel and use the rest as brat hot tub beer.

I should also add that I am having a hard time understanding why Hamms gets the $1.25 premium charge over Blatz and Busch Light.

Yes I do not understand their beer pricing algorithm.

The funny thing is that bar did have an excellent selection of other beers including many on tap including a lot of the Belgian beers I like.

They cater to the $2 crowd and the upscale crowd I guess.

Picking up some new brews for Crappy Beer Challenge 2 today! Going to a big grocery store, will be interesting to see how the crap beer selections have changed in the king can size.

Was anyone actually drinking Hamms cans in that bar?

Actually I ran into a guy I used to work with that night and I think he was drinking the $2 PBR cans.

It was most assuredly me working that night. I must say that i'm not sure if that was a dig at my music and programming choices or not, but I'm just here to clear things up.
The cans are all 75 cents on mondays and 2 dollars the rest of the week. Hamm's doesn't sell that much...but i think you'd be surprised if you tried one. Stop in and I'll buy you one...

I wasn't digging on anything, sorry if it came across that way. I just chuckled at the fact that your bar has all the HIGH beer and all the LOW beer in one place
