Rant of the Week: Where's the Damn Oberon?!



Rant of the Week: Where's the Damn Oberon?!

There's two places around my house that sell Oberon. On Saturday evening, I went to one of the two places to pick up a 6-pack of yummy Oberon to pre-game with prior to heading out to the comedy club. I walked into the slum of a liquor store and went straight to the ATM (since they don't take cash). I pulled out $40 cash and winced at the $2.50 withdrawal fee. After I got my money, I walked past the 13 year old Chinese kid that was drooling over hardcore porno magazines with his father (WTF?!) and went back to the location where the Oberon is normally kept. Except this time, I couldn't find it. I carefully inspected every single case of beer in the whole store without luck. I even checked out the freezer. No luck there either. The cashier had no clue what I was talking about when I asked him if they had any Oberon. I felt the Threat Level go from Mild to Severe as I reflected on the time I called this store and asked them if they had any Oberon and got this response:

Do you have any Oberon? Uhhhhhhhhh...Ober-uhhhhhh...look...we've got a lot of beer.

Well FML. I went to Meijer today just to see if they had some, but they didn't. I wasn't even looking to drink beer, I just wanted to grab some to stock up on. Still no luck. I think I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and drive up to Michigan and buy a truckload of it.
