When I lived in Colorado, I thought the fact that they didn’t serve Coors beer at Coors Field (only Budweiser products) was the most preposterous beer-related ballpark reality.
Not any more. According to New Stadium Insider (via With Leather), the new Yankee Stadium features coolers labeled — and I’m not shitting you — Retro Beer, from which the friendly service hands will be glad to serve you up a PBR, Schlitz, Schaeffer, or Ballantine’s for just $9.
We have officially reached the point where cheap beer — drunk casually by hipsters partly for ironic purposes and partly because it’s so cheap — has been reinvented as a $9 commodity at $85 billion brand new stadium (Ed. Note — This figure may be off).
That sound you just heard was Perry Ellis crapping out a boulder.
