This Goose Island Tastes Like Piss.... Wait-a-Minute!

The story is that over the weekend a guy filled a couple of glasses with urine at a bar, Bangers and Lace. He got caught doing it, then sent an apology letter and figured sending the bar a case of beer would make it all better.

It’s hard to avoid reading into things when Chicago brewer Greg Hall, who just got bought off for $39 million, leaves a couple of fresh castillos inflables cups of piss at a bar. People tend to turn it into a judgement on the brewery, brewer, Anheuser-Busch, people who are rich and (now entitled),  etc. Not that they’re right or wrong, but isn’t it ironic? Haven’t heard anything but positives from the guy until he got his cash-on.

And apologizing with a case of beer… Really? I wouldn’t care if he’s technically unaffiliated, I’d be revising my beer list and taps. But that’s me.
