On the road again…to Philadelphia this weekend for a wedding…flew Southwest, an airline I swear by. Only trouble is the beer. All they have is light lagers: Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Heineken.
“Well, what kind of beer would you like us to have, “the flight attendant asked me? I was flummoxed. You know, so many beers, so little time. Started to say something stupid (and desirable to me like St. Bernardus Abt 12). “Uhh Sierra Nevada Pale Ale,” I manated to say. “Well, I really like a cold Coors Light,” another attendent chipped in. Enuf said.
Hint to Southwest: I still love you, but stock at least one beer of a different stripe. You don’t offer five Chardonnay wines. Why five light lagers? Even Delta sells Leinenkugel Wheat. Yes, Miller owns Leiny, but the wheat is decent and not a light lager.
