Lol I use to bartend at an Olive Garden. They have some odd idea's of what constitutes premium.

It's just their way of making you feel special...like when they come out clapping and singing on somebodies birthday...or when you order a premium chicken sandwich at McDonalds...it's not premium but it'll make you feel better about ordering it. F*** I'm eating McDonalds again? Oh well...at least it's premium.

well it is not Bush, Natty lite or Old Milwaukee, so yes they could be considered premium in that context.

I wouldn't even think to look at the beer list at Olive Garden or any other chain restaurant. Now, most smaller restaurants, at least in my part of Virginia, have some sort of craft beer offerings.

Gotta love the inevitable argument over what constitutes a "domestic" beer at happy hour. "It's brewed in this town. How much more freaking domestic can you get?"

Yeah that and they need to somehow explain the ridiculous price of said beer. "D*mn a pint is how much....oh it's premium well gee I feel better then."
