Default One of The Best Weekends Ever

I was visiting my old college stomping grounds at OU this past weekend and I was completely blown away by the prices of beer there.

First thing we do when we get into town was hit up a bar called Cat's Eye, I order a pitcher of Miller Light for some of the guys... $2.50!

I order a Stella bottle... $2.50!

I order a Magic Hat #9 draft... $2.50 in a full pint-glass!

Then I order a Miller Light bottle, as you may have guessed it was the same price.

Only on a college campus like Ohio University's can any beer from any country distributed by any given company be the same price across the board.

It was awesome...

Sweet, I love finding cheap beer and when it's good that is even better.

I use to live by this bar that had a great happy hour every day, but specifically on Wednsday it was even better.

I went there with some friends, my buddy walks up to the bar ask:

Friends: what specials do you have?
Bar tender: $1.50 pitchers
Friends says: oh $1.50 pints, that's pretty good
Bar Tender: No! $1.50 pitchers
Friend: turns around to us and says "how many do you want?"

Oh it was great and to top it off they were having a wet t-shirt contest that night...... I was single at the time of course.

Agreed, humann. That sounds like one of the best ways to spend a Wednesday ever.

Nothing beats a cheap bar with a good beer selection. They just opened a new Irish pub type place a couple minutes from my office that does a happy hour 2-for-1 from 4 to 7 that actually includes the quality beers. Had two pints of Bell's Oberon for $4.50 - needless to say, we'll be going back often.

$4.50 for both of them? That's pretty sweet, as well.

My friend if you visited Athens for the first time in a coupe years and drank BMC you MISSED what that place has become. What year did you graduate? My old grounds as well. The craft beer scene there now is awesome!

I graduated in 07. I actually helped Jackie O's with their first recipe.

I can totally agree with what the craft beer scene is like down there now, its completely different after being away for only 2-3 years, let alone any longer...

Same product, different delivery, different volume. same price. I'd go for the pitcher.

Don't remind me. Boston = $5 a pint is a good price. It's brutal.
