Jumping on the Bandwagon

...though a headline involving "on the" and "wagon" really don't belong on a site about drinking beer. I lit my own personal wagon on fire and pushed it off a cliff to ensure I will never be back on it.

The Smiths at Carlisle and Constitution is getting in on the make your own six-pack scene. For $8.99, you can choose from four shelves of "Brewmaster's Choice" beers. I imagine the "Brewmaster" at Smiths as either the guy with the hairnet who works in the meat department or the high-school girl bagging with one hand and texting with the other. Who made this sign?? Why, upon further review, it's my buddies who have their tentacles in everything beer-related: Anheuser-Busch InBev! To be fair, I can't bash them for this. It's not like the singles choices are narrowed down to Michelob Amber Bock and Landshark Lager. In fact, only a few beers in the AB In-Bev portfolio are represented among all the choices. It is actually quite a decent selection. You bare paying about a dollar more than you normally would out of convenience, but a six-pack of Modus Hoperandi or Odell IPA (both represented in the section) would cost you even more. So, good for Smiths. I applaud their "Brewmaster".
