Actually, from what I have seen, Chicago is pretty reasonably. Downtown Chicago is significantly cheaper than downtown Seattle, much to my surprise.


Yeah I had a co-worker move to Chicago and he was really excited about how cheap it was. Coming from DC I guess only Boston, NY, and SF are more expensive.

That would be Thursday Night Drinking Club (TNDC) and it's not secret at all. It's actually well advertised with colorful school-wide emails every week.

is the beer watered-down or really weak beer with a bad aftertaste? That`s what my undergrad used to provide on the cheap beer nights :o

Marvelous.

I just discovered how I'm going to contribute to the campus community at Darden.

3 br house with porch, parking, yard, all remodeled: $95k. After 20% downpayment, mortgage (PITI) comes to $630 per month. I heart Durham.

I'm pretty sure it is against the law to water down beer in the US. I'm 100% positive it is illegal to water down liquor (before mixing it of course). As far as I could tell, the beer was normal, and I've never heard anyone suggest it might be watered down.

I thought American beer comes watered down from the brewery...

Correct. What did I miss? There is great microbrewery in San Diego, though. Karl Strauss? (or are they mass producing?)

Great Micros up here. I believe Portland was really the origination point of the modern micro brew movement (I could be wrong). One of my local favorites is Mack & Jack's African Amber. Tasty.

I would say that micro brews probably originated with Sam Adams, though it's really not a micro brew anymore. Coming from California, I always thought that Sierra Nevada and Anchor Steam were around and established well before the segment exploded.

I guess the fate of all successful microbreweries is to eventually get bigger (and making the "micro" somewhat obsolete ) if they have a certain capitalistic streak. :) I loved the beers they had at Karl Strauss in SD (some of them you couldnt buy in stores) - the guy learned his brewery skills in Munich.

Well, there's a loophole: you just need to label it as light (or "lite") and then it's ok. As someone said, this is done at the brewery level, though.

Anchor Brewing most certainly leads the way, both in history and quality of product. Scam Adams is great if you are stuck at Logan in a snowstorm but hey, a long enough wait and and even Dunkin Donuts coffee might seem like an appealing distraction. See : http://www.triplerock.com/history3.html for a summary of the beginnings of brewpubs. For some reason I thought the place in Hayward was the first but my memory could be hazy for many reasons...

Help!

a common case in b-schools is on boston brew company (sam adams). most places read it for finance -- you can price their IPO from the info in the case. But we read it for strategy. It lends itself really well to an environmental analysis and Porter's 5 Forces. It's an HBS case: http://harvardbusinessonline.hbsp.harva ... erral=2342
