Another article about Beer Lao mania (first mentioned here some months back). It is, indeed, the NEW. HIP. EXOTIC. BEER, one favored by those quick to jump on the bandwagon of hipness, in this case rice adjuncts and all. So for those keeping track:
- 1970s: Coors
- 1980s: St. Pauli/Heineken
- 1990s: Corona
- Early Oughts: Beer Lao.
The fact that you hear it here first, well, shucks. Doesn’t make me hip. Just, ya know, aware and astute.
