Hipsters' PBR obsession driving up the price of cheap beer



LINK

quote:

Cheap beers are becoming less cheap, and for that you can thank hipsters.

A recent study by Restaurant Sciences found that your everyday, low-cost beers like Budweiser, Miller Light and Coors Light are getting pricier, a trend the firm attributes to the rise in popularity of Pabst Blue Ribbon -- a favorite among your bearded, flannel shirt-wearing friends.

I just find it ironic for any group of people who try to be different and conform have such large following and stereotypes.


Obviously meant anti-conformist. Kinda hard to be different and fall in line at the same time.

It's a mixed bag. I probably have hipsters to thank for the fact that cheap beers I like are easier to find, and I can order a $2 beer in a can at a bar while my beer snob friends meditate over the taps, but that demand is naturally going to raise the prices.
