Default What a fine craft beer selection you have there.

and it looks like they have both kinds of wine: red and white! that must be from the liquor store in Windom, MN.

(Face palm) Ya, I was in a dive bar once & asked what sorts of imports they had. The bartender says "Well, we got Michelob." I sighed & left.
Regards, GF.

Am I the only one who sees the text about craft beer not necessarily intended to refer to the brands pictured. I think the add was meant to show what was on sale and to indicate they also had a selection of craft brews you should check out, not that BMC was craft brew.

That's how I see it. Of course the haters see an opportunity to find any excuse to slam bmc.

I wonder if the OP of this thread has ACTUALLY been in the store to see if it's worth criticizing, or even starting a thread about it. They might actually have a decent selection. Now if there's actually no craft beer in the store...THEN it'll be a totally different kettle of fish.

*shrug*

I knew what the ad was trying to say. But the OP was just trying to have fun. I got it.
