Old Milwaukee (357/365)

“Beer built right.”

Old Milwaukee beer slogan

TIME:  4:20 PM
PLACE:  Beauty Shop
SUBJECT:  Old Milwaukee beer
(taken with my crappy cellphone camera)

I was my beautician’s last customer of the day and after she had put color in my hair and it was processing, she asked if I minded if she had a beer.  I told her that wasn’t a problem and then she asked if I wanted one too.  Well of course! - I never look a gift beer in the mouth.  She pulled two Old Milwaukees out of the compact refrigerator.  While Old Mil is not my beer of choice, I have to admit that my first sip of it tasted pretty darn good.  I don’t agree with the “America’s Best Tasting Beer” slogan on the top of the can, but in all honesty, it’s not the swill that some consumers claim it to be.  Hey, did you know that in 2004 it took home the gold in the Great American Beer Festival competition?  Take *that* you haters.
