You might not have the best benefits package, and you probably work 60 hours per week, but you earn enough money to buy a beer faster than any other country on the planet. America, fuck yeah! Some say our priorities may be out of whack, but I say they’re just right. People often citicize the macro brewers for making shit beer, but their pricing is the reason we’re on the top (well, bottom) of the charts!
