Small beer selections

So, I am down in a small town in Oklahoma this week and I went out to this little restaurant for dinner.  The food was good, but the beer selection appeared to be tiny looking at the selection of taps and the bottles over the bar.  The waitress came over and asked what we wanted to drink so I asked her what beers they had, as I often do when going out for dinner on a business trip.  She cracked a large smile, and with a southern twang she said "We have everything!"

I sat there thinking, "everything," you've got to be kidding me, you have 5 taps and 8 bottles over the bar.  So I told her, "Well, will you let me know what you do have so that I don't order something that you don't carry."  She huffed a little and again told me they had everything..  I shrugged and she rattled off the list....
"Bud Light, Miller Light, Coors Light, Shiner Bock, Shock Top, Dos Equis and Guinness.. You know, Everything!"

Defeated, I ordered a Shock Top, review will be posted later this week.

I just find it a little sad that in some parts of the country "Everything" means mass market beers.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good Shiner Bock from time to time, and have been known to drink Guinness...  But I was hoping for a nice Porter or Pale Ale...

This is going to be a long week....

Hope you are drinking better beers than I am this week!  Happy Drinking!!!
