"Move over, Pabst Blue Ribbon...

...You're no longer the hipster beer. That honor now goes to St. Pauli Girl beer."
So says The Philadelphia Weekly. Since when was Pabst Blue Ribbon ever hip? What is Pabst Blue Ribbon any way?


If you drink (American) Budweiser, Coors or Miller, you are a dick. If you drink Bud Light, Coors Light or Miller Lite, you are a dick on a stick. These fizzy beverages can be considered beers only in the same way toothpaste can be considered food. Try drinking one at room temperature if you don't believe me.

If on the other hand you're spotted quaffing (Czech) Budweiser, Timothy Taylor, Anchor Steam, Grainstore Rutland Panther or Theakston's Old Peculier (sic), this immediately marks you out as a god among men-knitted twat hat with spazzy earflaps notwithstanding.

Finally, have you met the new St. Pauli Girl?
She's our new patron saint for 2006!

Here's last years, just in case you forgot...

Notice a theme? The beer, right?

Well, let's see... friendlier smile, more natural hair color, a cute choker rather than a heart necklace dangling low, part in hair switched sides, softer, exact same beer bottles. And, oh yeah, my hubby walked in just now and said, "Wow. Look at those..."

One thing that shocked my husband and I while visiting Ireland was the Coors and Bud on tap at every pub! Also there were bilboards and signs advertising these products all over Dublin. We asked a bar tender at one pub what the deal was and he said they actually sell those brands more than Guinness! We were stunned and he explained people want to get drunk and Bud or Coors aren't as heavy and a person can drink more...sad.

I think I prefer last year's.

To agree with mutti above, I was in Ireland a couple of years ago and saw the exact same thing. What was funny to me was that people would order Bud in a bottle with a glass of ice. I was just excited that Guinness was a fairly reasonable price.
