    The fuck are they thinking?
    CHICAGO -- Walgreen Co. has rolled out a private-label beer, branded Big Flats 1901 to more than 4,600 of its 7,655 stores nationwide.

    Walgreens has been stocking stores as alcohol licenses are approved, according to a report in the Chicago Tribune.

    The beer is retailing for 50 cents a can in the Chicago market. Prices will vary by market, and the beer will be available in states where private-label alcohol is legal, the newspaper reported.

    "In this tough economy, consumers are looking for value and ways to make their money go [further]," a Walgreens spokesman told the Chicago Tribune. "Big Flats 1901 offers our customers a premium lager at a great price."

    Big Flats is made by Novato, Calif.-based Winery Exchange, which also provides private-label alcohol for chains like Costco Wholesale and Trader Joe, the newspaper reported.

    When times are good, people drink. When times are bad, people drink.

    I suppose they could have picked a better name though. Does it come in bottles? I'm a bottle girl.

    @ .50 a can, I bet it only comes in cans. I like bottles myself. I want to know if it tastes like ass. Most cheapo depot beers do.

    That's what I was thinking too. If I have to, I'll go the cheapest bottle route necessary. Anything to pass on a can. Then again, I could pour the ass-tasting beer in a glass. :lol:

    "I've got big flats!"

    That's what I say when I'm discharging an excessive amount of potent rectal gas.
