IN A BAND? We want you IN HERE

send us your gigs at i want in @

Hipsters, besides taking credit for every band you’ve ever heard of, have cornered the market on Pabst Blue Ribbon. Don’t believe me? Try typing in the words “why do hipsters” on Google. It will finish your sentence with “drink PBR”. Now, there’s nothing overtly wrong with hipsters, although I’ve discovered they don’t care for that term. But it’s grown to the point that it’s now impossible to enjoy a PBR tallboy without someone wondering if you’ve misplaced your skinny jeans & frames with no lenses. Nevertheless, there are plenty of bottom shelf beers remaining. One brew is a sure-fire way to draw second glances and allow you to appear unique. I present to you, the new hipster beer. Red Dog. It’s every bit as cheap as PBR, but at 5% alcohol by volume, the Dog easily tops PBR’s paltry 4.6%. The Dog also has six fewer calories per can. Boom. That just happened. Not many places in BismarckMandan serve Red Dog over the counter. Granted, the Dog is not as smooth as say, Busch Light, but it’s absolutely as affordable. Best of all, you don’t have to tell people you were drinking Red Dog before it was cool.
