Rob seems to be having trouble finding regular beers to drink. The way he explains it, he’s been forced into drinking extremely high ABV beers because that’s what’s hip right now. As if every beer on the shelf is some face melting knockout punch in a bottle.
I wanted to post to give some guidance to Rob and perhaps those who listen to him and think what he says is true. Here’s the problem: going to a liquor store to buy beer. Liquor stores are for people who want to get fucked up fast. They cater to this crowd. Of course they stock a bunch of imperial ____ and malt liquor! I think you’ll find that if you walk into a normal grocery store that there’s a much more varied beer selection, plenty of tasty craft beers of comparatively low ABV. Even some of those IPAs that Rob seems to think have gone out of fashion still abound in the brightly lit grocery store aisles where normal people go to buy beer. Liquor stores are for alcoholics. Just go to the grocery store.
