I would immediately order a beer at a bar that had the categories:
"Mass produced light lager" - BMC
"Mass produced beer" - guinness, bass, blue moon, negro modelo, etc.
"microbrews"
"local craft"

But that's all semantics, if the price is right (and the temp...wishful thinking), the bartender/owner can be as ignorant as he/she desires and I'll still drink a beer there.
In Michigan you can't do a 2 for 1 special. That would imply they are giving you a free beer, which they can't do. It would have to be a 1/s off special.

Just a little bit of trivia.

In Massachusetts, happy hour is illegal. No free drinks, half price drinks, or coupons/ gift cards for drinks.

I have to agree here. Sure, the wording is funny and incorrect, and we might sniff at it since We Know Better, but why leave without having your beer? Didn't you miss it? Wasn't it calling to you plaintively from the bar as you walked out? I would have chuckled to myself as I drained my glass, then told the funny story when I got home...

You're right, of course--growing up in CA I never had to plan my purchases around the all-important Sunday-afternoon-beer-and-football. And when I lived in GA I paid for it, mostly with Sunday trips onto base to go to the package store, mumbling uncharitable unprintables about the Bible Belt all the way. Sorry if that offends folks, I'm no libertine, but I do get crotchety when I'm denied beer...

Now even with Sunday sales it can only be sold after 12:00 in our area. My guess is so I can't get it before the people at church do.

No sales on alcohol are allowed, ever. It's very annoying.

For a long time "import" actually referred to imported beer but in reality was how they communicated that they were going to charge more for it.

If they had said it's a "premium" beer would you have stayed and enjoyed the beer you ordered?

If I had been sitting at that bar I would be posting about a funny thing I overheard at a bar...This guy walks in and orders a micro-brew. The bartender tells him it's an import because they charge the import price on their micros. They guy argues with the bartender about where the beer is made and then storms out without having a beer.
sounds pretty accurate, I know I know more and more bars are just switching over to the term craft beer or something of the sorts that way it is more generic but it was basically the guys attitude that pissed me off, he had no interest or knowledge for that matter of anything about the beers let alone where they were made.

Overheard at the beer aisle in the grocery store. Man speaking to wife/gf:
Non-Alcoholic beer is really bad for you. They use bleach to remove the alcohol.
