I suppose some beer you just have to give away.

Though, as we know, Bud is strangely popular over there...

You have to admit, even though it's Bud, it's a really cool idea.

There was a deli in Chicago that did this (they've since closed) - it was called "Temperature soup" and you paid whatever the temperature was (in F) - 100 degrees outside, it's $10. 5 degrees outside, it's $0.50. Negative temp, and they pay you to order it.

That's about right; it'd have to be a cold day in hell for me to order a Bud.

The prospect of living in a place where 20°C is so hot they serve free beer appeals to me...

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Negative temp in chicago? nah that would NEVER happen. I can't imagine they stayed in business through the first winter

IIRC it was only on one day and only between 11:30 and noon, or something like that.
