An affront to beer culture

From the Italian restaurant/bar right around the corner:

Offering a deal on Bud Light for “Best of Belgium Happy Hour” is almost as insulting as that time* Consumer Reports rated Shock Top a craft beer “best buy”. Just because Americans are most familiar with Stella doesn’t make it “Best of” anything, and just because InBev bought Anheuser-Busch doesn’t make Budweiser “of Belgium.”

At the very least, this sign should read “Best of Belgium and Brazil.”

*For the record, “that time” = earlier this week.
