|Big Flats in its natural habitat|
Beer companies like to tout their rich history. Pabst Blue Ribbon gets its namesake from winning “best beer in the world” in 1893. Budweiser still has horses for some fucking reason. Big Flats says 1901, this would seem to imply that the beer has been around since 1901. This would be a goddamned lie. Near as I can tell Big Flats is just the new Walgreens brand beer. It’s hard to say for sure though; they don’t even have a website. Jesus, I have a website.
And that's the bottom line: price and convenience. In the Chicagoland area there’s a Walgreens on every block, so if you have 3.50 in your pocket you’re never more than half a block away from a six pack of beer. I like those odds. It could be worse; there could be a picture of Hitler on the can.
Beer Name Game
Here’s how the domestic beer name game works:
1. If you’re under the age of 30 use the word “Old” if you’re over 30 use the word “Olde” If you are exactly 30 use the word “ol’.”
2. Take the first letter of your last name and find a town in Wisconsin with the same first letter. (unless your last name begins with M, Q,U, X, Y or Z then you just use Milwaukee.) Adding an apostrophe “S” is entirely optional. See list blow:
E- Eau Galle
F- Fort Winnebago
L- La Follette
3. Take the first letter or your first name and apply it to the chart below
4. Take your age and add it to 1850.
I’m 27 so I got “Old.” My last name starts with an “O” so I took Ojibwa and my first name starts with a “D” so I got stream. Old Ojibwa Stream 1877. Wow, I could really go for a cold ’77 right now.
