Did I say this before? Someone must have.
At some point during the heady last few years that brought an explosion of new beer and slick places to drink everyone collectively forgot what each is worth.
Yes, I am bitching about the price of beer. N0, no one is forcing me to go spend that money but, and here's where we can all be selfish, I don't want these places to go under either. If they're charging $8.50/$9.00 or whatever for a pint (or less) then people are going to wake up and start staying away in droves. There's some combination of overestimation and general opportunism running the show during these heady days and it's setting the bar at the bars unsustainably high. Some of the new and funky places are going to start collapsing when the public collectively realizes that they don't have $40 to get a couple of drinks for a themselves and a friend. Too much... —R Bivouac
