Item: Baseball Bat Beer

Proprietor of liquor store: “What are you doing, sir?”
Me: “I’m taking a picture of this.”
Proprietor of liquor store: “Are you to buy it?”
Me: “No. I’m going to buy something more expensive.”
Proprietor of liquor store: “Very good then.”

I don’t believe in awful beer. I do, however, believe that items refashioned to resemble baseball bats are small, good things. So I compromised. I purchased the Oberon and took a terrible picture of the Old Style bottles refashioned to resemble baseball bats. Sometimes, even in this zero-sum life of ours, everybody wins.

    This is a bald faced lie. Though it’s nice to see you’ve maintained the proper priorities in wake of recent developments.

      I can occasionally partake in things I don’t believe in. I am a man of nuance and complication.

    Life is not zero-sum. For instance, if you drink Old Style, you have to deal with a nasty taste in your mouth. No matter what value you believe you might get from the beer, you still have to deal with the taste. Net negative.
    Get a quality beer like Sam Adams Imperial Stout and enjoy that in front of a baseball game, you get a net positive to the Sam Fuld degree.

    As a KZoo resident I say good call on the Oberon. Although sometimes… you just can’t beat the novelty of anything Old Style.

    Oberon is nice, but being an IPA man, Two Hearted Ale is my primary choice there.

    Although, drinking beer out of a baseball bat would be even cooler than drinking liquor out of my hollowed out ski poles on the slopes.

    am I the only guy who thought this post was going to be about Dizzy Bat, the drinking game?
