a couple of things

I had one of the best birthdays last week. I don't know if it's the advent of facebok and the ability for everyone to know when it is if they log in on a fairly regular basis, but it was a good time none the less.

When I went out on Thursday we stopped at Allen St Hardware. What got me was something that initially in my mind was bad, but after some consideration I justified it as being alright. Hardware was the first place around here that I was consciously aware of that served Pabst or PBR and for years they had it in bottles none the less. Then I would say they stopped the bottles and served cans, now if I want a PBR in a bottle I'll now have to go next door to Staples or walk across the street to Mulligans Brick Bar or walk further down the st to Frizzy's. Then what I realized was they substituted their "old man beer" selections to Genny Screamer or Genesee Cream Ale and also Schmidt's or I guess as it's marketed now just Schmidt. I can deal with Genny C.A. as it isn't that bad and to be honest there aren 't really too many cream ales out on the market anyway. Now I brought a case of Schmit's to a party about a 2 years ago as a joke since all of the people at this party were micro brew beer snobs. Well I guess in some sort of new-found hipter way actually they drank us out of the Schmidt's and even the Old Milwaukee that we brought as well.

In the end I actually don't mind Schmidt's as it's a pretty smooth drinking beer to have and for $2.50 a can you can't go wrong with the price. So I think I can forgive them for discontinuing the PBR on their beer list.
