I went to Champps for dinner (mostly because they mailed me a $10 gift card) and looming over the beer menu I see this:

I guess if people see the word "premium" next to BMC enough times they will believe it! Why are these not listed as "domestic" anymore? Sigh.

This is a new one to me. I mean ive seen premium used to describe the BMC specialty beers but not the actual BMC beers themselves. I can almost justify shock top, rolling rock, or yuengling, but budweiser, etc. Is something new to me.

Almost as bad as this place in SC that listed SNPA as an import!

Nothing ... That was the low end of the menu.

Oh, I've seen all sorts of US beers listed as "imported". It cracks me up. SNPA, Fat Tire, Shiner Bock, all listed as "imported". I suppose so it can justify a higher price.

I did tell a server that I was unaware that Pennsylvania had seceded from the union (Yuengling) but since I got a blank stare I decided my humor was misplaced.

Domestic beers being sold as imports is even worse for those of us that don't know.

I move that a bill be put to Congress saying that re-sellers of beer have to list their offerings under the correct category. I wouldn't begin to have the legal vernacular to put something like that together, but someone should do it.
