Trucker hat wearing hipsters were drinking PBR "ironically" the first time around, so what would that make it now?

There's a tavern that I go to occasionally where a few of the women regulars (I've never seen or heard of any men that do this) get their 6oz. glasses of Miller Lite with ice, because "the straight beer is too strong for me".

Wow! Why don't they just drink seltzer with a thimble of vodka?

Whilst I'm always reluctant to quote Wikipedia the sources cited in this are sound.

The mentions of mixes have been fairly conclusively repudiated by multiple sources. Sorry.

Do you have a source? Lots of people like Heinekin, so it sounds like a matter of personal preference.

Meta-irony. The point is that since hipsters used to drink PBR and don't anymore, it is now meta-ironic for a hipster to consume it.

Not exactly beer related, but close enough I suppose.

I was returning a bottle of mead that I had gotten as a gift. I had saved the bottle for a while, but when I started to hear bad reviews and even worse - the meadery had gone public with that it had been a failed batched, I tried it.

It had fermented in the bottle, which was potentially dangerous, and it tasted sour. So I headed to the store, explained that there was a co2 build up in the bottle and etc.

"Mead all meads are fizzy." - Corrected him, and later walked home with money back for the mead AND extra for the trips, which was more than the mead itself. Naturally, I bought some honey and yeast on my way home instead.

Moral of the story: make your own presents!

Heard a bunch of other stupid stuff about mead too. This one is a personal favorite: "No, thanks. I don't want to try mead, I'm worried people will think I'm a racist."
