    Eh. I appreciate what they’re doing, but they’d have to pay me 75 cents to drink any of those beers.

    • you;re forgetting that it’s triple brewed, broseph.

      lose the ego and have a good time..it’s cheaper than buying at the liquor store!

        It’s not about ego. I just wouldn’t have a good time drinking that stuff. First off, there’s not enough alcohol in there for me to have a good time, even if I binge drink 6 of them. Then I would just end up having to piss all night long, along with not being buzzed or drunk. Not my definition of a good time. Might as well be drinking water. Hell, I’d be better off buying liquor at the liquor store.

  • To point out how ridiculous the price of beer has gotten, I’ll point out that $.75 in 1974 is $3.63 today.

  • I really don’t understand why places like this have specials on lousy beer. I would never go to a place to save money on Budweiser, but if I were going there anyway I would probably buy it, I would drink a beer I don’t like and spend less money. So I lose by drinking something I don’t like and they lose by having me spend less money. I guess if they want college kids it could be a selling point, but you so often see crappy beers on special at places that aren’t catering to college kids. I don’t understand it.

      The really odd thing is that Mellow Mushroom actually has a pretty great beer list, which makes this offer all the more off putting.

        You’re right, they do. I wonder why they don’t offer specials on their good stuff. Maybe it’s all about the 1974 throwback. I mean Bud, et al was all they had back then, right?

    I’m not above enjoying a 75 cent Bud.

  • We tried going last night around 7 but it was waaay too packed. They weren’t taking names anymore, it was a free-for-all if you wanted a table, and even if you found one, the kitchen was closed for the time being because it was so backed up. All pretty predictable for such an event, it was quite chaotic in there. Seems to me they could’ve prepared better…..oh well.
