Hipsters gave us good beer in bards and pubs? Really? PBRS? Seriously? Most of the Bars that I have been going to for the last 25 years have always had pretty good beer selections.

Gaffneys Pub in Hyde Park, NY was were most of the local high schoolers got their Beer Teeth, and (REAL) PBR was the drink of choice since the early 1960'

I see why the hipsters have to drink PBR in somewhere like NYC, ordering just a normal beer in Manhattan is like 7 dollars and up unless you are at a happy hour. I'm not even talking about craft brews.
Even in convenience stores it can be outrageous, a 6 pack of Blue Moon I saw priced for 12.99 at DR's and Guinness 6 pack was 20.99...

I can see that in New York. Though in Potland you can get good local beer or other craftbrews for like $4 a pint in most bars--and PBR would be maybe be $2.50-$3---and tons of people still would/will order PBR(you do save a few more bucks if you order a pitcher). It was basically an excuse for people to drink domestic macro lagers other Budweiser or Coors in some ways and seem cool. I never saw working class dives in Portland with PBR until it's more recent surge in popularity in the last decade--but even in dive bars in Portland you'll find good craft beers on tap usually.

Then once the PBR trend caught on and every bar started stocking PBR as their cheap brew, some bars started selling Iron City/Old German lagers as a way to be a little different. Whatever...I guess it's sort of the reverse of back in the 80s/90s when it was sort of trendy for yuppies to drink European lagers like Heineken.

PBR tastes the same going in as it does going out.

http://www.hbbeerco.com/ontap.html I don't think they sell PBRS, and I laugh every time I see some yuppie tool ordering a Coors light.

Excellent beer and very good food.

Last thing I want is for the who walks down the street selling elotes(corn on the cob with cheese), to be reported by some sheltered yuppies and get taken out of the area.

I know gangs aren't good, but I'm kind of glad that they scare off people (with their tags) that would want to change our neighborhood into starbucksville. Our neigborhood is still holding it down with our culture. Cant imagine our corner store or La Azteca Restraunt(we call it Dachos, named after the man who founded it and died a few years back) to be turned into some hippie organic food place.. HELL NO..
Have you ever seen this episode of South Park? Smug Alert.

Smug Alert (Season 10, Episode 2) - Full Episode Player - South Park Studios

Kyle and his family move to San Francisco (where they appreciate hybrid cars more) and Cartman with Butters' assistance has to go in and rescue him (in the second half of the episode so stick with it) from the wine and cheese crowd that like to smell their own f*rts because a smug cloud is coming from San Francisco and Hollywood (George Clooney's Oscar acceptance speech) and meeting the one in Colorado (new hybrid owners) to destroy everyone.

I think you will really appreciate it.

I really dislike Hipsters for many reasons. One reason is my own fault, the rest are theirs.

Obviously, I would love to have a silver spoon in my mouth. Am I jealous, yes.

What I resent is that these hipsters move into these coveted areas, and think it's THEIR playground, and everything else is just in the background, including natives, non-hipsters, etc. It's like they just change the channel on TV. They don't feel the need to involve non-hipsters, and act, dress, cry, live poor yet have financial security and rich, snotty attitudes.

I have no problem with a poor person becoming rich and acting aloof. I have no problem with a rich person becoming poor and coming back down to real life.

The majority of the hipsters I've seen are walking hypocrisy. I can't respect it. Many of them have attitudes, as well - as they haven't learned the city lessons of watching your mouth, and the code of respect, helping neighbors, participating in a neighborhood, assimilating into the culture of the neighborhood.

Basically: "I'm going to move in next to you, party all the time, sit at a coffee shop and pretend I pay my own rent, but I'm not talking to you because I'm from the suburbs and I'm connected for life."

I still feel the need to give an HM to those who arent from the suburbs and from actual cities. Cant blame them for going somewhere where theyre robbed of the life theyd have in their own city.
