Also I agree, hipsters make me think of womens jeans.
Hahahaha you mean men in women's jeans? Yea, another stereotype with, well, a rather high frequency of examples supporting it!

I live in Grand Rapids, MI. On the SE side.

Black Label is like... Canadian PBR? http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/433/8617 Just another dirt-cheap adjunct lager. Not my thing, but people eat it up. Hard to beat a $0.50 can of beer AT a bar.

I really hate that term, but I'll put it to you this way: The price of PBR in the last 5 years has risen by about 15%. The new PBR around here is Black Label. It's always stocked at the local stores.
To be fair, where I live PBR is still 3.50 for a 6-pack of 16oz cans. Ounce for ounce it's cheaper than Icehouse and Milwaukee's Best and infinitely better.

I'm noticing that the fad for PBR is passing over and that Schlitz is coming the new trendy beer with the "hipster" crowd. Which I find odd because the only people I know who drink Schlitz unironically are men over 60 from the upper midwest who hang onto their brand loyalty from their youth. It was common growing up there but after many years on the east coast it's just now eeking into bars and onto shelves (again?).

Wow, $3.50 for a 6-pack of 16oz cans? I'd probably buy a few of those now and then, too at that price. Might have to report back after going to the store what the price of PBR is here...
