RE: Are you a snob?
I don't think I'm a beer snob but I feel like a beer snob. I'll be at the convenience store and the guy in front of me has a twelve pack of Busch and the guy behind me will have a six of Milwaukee's Best and somebody will have a couple Natty Light singles or whatever and I'm standing there with my precious six pack of Coors it's so fucking embarrassing. I just want to disappear into the floor and I have this uncomfortable feeling everybody's rolling their eyes at me and they just want to yank my underwear up around my head.

No seriously, I'll drink any cold beer but I prefer Blue Moons or Red Stripes (Red Stripes are really good) and I do feel a bit snooty buying them.

How snobbish are you?

It depends on how you define "snob."

The definition that makes sense to me is: "someone who takes his/her personal tastes to be objective."

I doubt many people who kiddingly call themselves snobs really are, by that definition at least. They just have strong personal preferences.

My memory may be playing tricks on me but I think at some point that may have been part of their advertising. Which is interesting because did the company think of it first and try to meme it out or did people like your dad just start calling it that for fun and then the company took it and ran with it.

EDIT: For 8/10 of my life I have gone with the cheaper beers, but now I turn my nose up at such beers and drink my Red Stripes with my pinky finger fully erect.

Says the gay white surfer dude from SoCal from an ungodly rich liberal Catholic family who sent him to Harvard for divinity training where he came back, not unexpectedly, as a complete full-blown atheist. (Physics at USC too, I think. Maybe not. Berkeley, maybe?) There's nothing worse than gay privileged snobs pretending to be snobophobic. I will hunt you down and force you to felch earmuffs in front of your entire family. ... at your birthday party. ... including your aunts and grammas.

I think you're right. Something like this only "unleash the beast" was somewhere in there.
