What boogles my mind about lots of bars...
    #2546644 - 04/10/04 02:13 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Is their selection of beer on tap. Far too often it's wasted on Bud, Bud light, and Coors light. I have nothing against these beers, as they're good for beer pong & such, but I cry everytime I see 3 taps wasted on beer where you can really appreiate the fact it's on tap. I also understand that people like to get pitchers of Bud lite as well, but it's too much of a standard.


The bar I went to last night had 3 different areas along the bar with taps. All 3 spots had 1 bud & 1 bud lite, a waste of 6 taps for potentially good beer. I'm always interested in trying new beers or having ones I like on tap. It's just a different experince than bottles.

Anyone else feel the same?

The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

>Because generally soft drinks on tap are shittier
-Generally soft drinks on tap are just syrup mixed with soda water. If you watch the dispenser closely you can see both parts mix as it fills your cup.
To the best of my knowledge, beer on tap doesn't work this way.

Move to the great Pacific Northwest. Best beer selection in the country IMHO. We still have our fair share of bars with the big three, but it is less and less common. Way too many great beers from around here.

Twirling, it's becuse lots of people have shitty taste in beer or because lots of people are on a tight budget and can't spend $3 or $4 for a glass of Sierra Nevada or Guinness. If a bar replaced all their cheap domestic taps with expensive micros and imports, they would sell a lot less beer.

Beer from the keg isn't subjected to UV radiation during shipping. Bottled beer is often skewed by it's exposure to UV radiation during shipping.

Beer isn't syrup plus CO2 like soda.

True. Light is bad for beer.

'Drink microbrews at home' is my motto. In a bar, I'm down to not spend rent.
