To Plaid Beer!
We here at Bad Idea Potluck would like to start recognizing a special beer each month.
In February, we raise a glass to Old Chub (never mind that the glass itself contains PBR).
The "Scottish Style Ale" produced by Colorado's Oskar Blues Grill and Brewery is an ideal camper's beer because it is incredibly inexpensive in comparison to its 8% alcohol content. Another plus, which helps explain the price: it comes in a plaid aluminum can.
Oskar Blues puts another beer, Dale's Pale Ale, in a can, but Old Chub gets the valentine for being the tastiest beer with a pop top ever.
After some road testing at a house show with a keg, (that may have skewed the results) Old Chub gets the coveted Bad Idea gold star as well. The dashing ale has a way of turning the volume knob on my personality all the way to the right.
