Progress - - in beer choices. I recall stores having as few as 2 to 4 choices in brand availability. You youngsters may not recall how big a deal we thought it was when the eastern brands found their way to local store shelves. After graduating from high school on Oly and Rainier, with a rare Heidelberg for variety, and once getting way too sick on Rhinelander, I still remember thinking that eastern brew, Budweiser was quality stuff. And so it seemed, until the micros arrived, effectively dividing the beer world into the macro and micro camps.
Now many have witnessed that the Legend That Is Stam will drink anything with % alcohol on its label, so there's no surprise in learning that Paker's cool photo of the Dungy leg and beer can belonged to Stam. However, there is another photo of Rainiers all around. And I wouldn't have even mentioned this except that Paker is well known around here as a microbrew snob who's extolled the virtues of uncommon and difficult to find micros. And it's not like one expects an extensive beer list anywhere in SE, but is Rainier the only beer you guys had to choose from on this fishing trip that's too good for stay at home moms? Or was it just the cheapest beer available at friendy AK prices?
