    I'm at the ballgame, and the stand has a Kölsch. I'm a sucker for that, and I ordered one. Hoppiest Kölsch I've ever had. I told the girl that's not a Kölsch. Luckily, she agreed. She couldn't figure out what was going on with all of the taps, but poured me a less hoppy beer. She let me keep the IPA. Score!!

    Decent beer at a stadium ? We're lucky to get anything more than bland mid strength lagers in a plastic cup

    Incase of protest and cans get thrown i wonder what would hurt more a can full of beer or a piping hot pie in the head

    You can pay $10 for a beer here sounds like your government are slinging tax upon your alcohoic beverages as well.

    it is kind of higher for the average micro beer six pack like $10 but I live in the BUD capital of the world so lagers are dirt cheap but concessions are outrageous, the reason being the Internet and tv has ruined their profits

    Lots of pseudo craft beer at Coors Field. AC Golden (Coors) has the place locked up. Still better than Rocky Mountain slightly contaminated spring water (actually it comes out of Clear Creek via the City of Golden municipal water supply).

    150 lashes is fairly bland , just left work and was handed a corona ...ice cold while I'm wearing a jumper
    Think they're suggesting I should supply some better after work beers

    Someone handed me a Miller at a party a while back. Couldn't get past the DMS. Once you get used to good beer, it's hard to go back to the stuff they have to market to get you to drink.

    Still some highly skilled brewers to produce gigalitres of exactly the same boring , bland yellow fizzy water day after day .
    I know a pro brewer who produces much the same day after day and the only decent beer he makes is at home
