At least it's not nickel beer night.

Come for the beer. Stay for the forfeited game.

While you're at Craft Beer Night presented by MillerCoors, don't forget to grab a slice of world famous Chicago-style pizza brought to you by DiGiorno!

I think I'd rather they do that than Fake Craft Beer Night

Most of the people who buy it probably still think it is.

This ****ty ship of fools that is the White Sox organization tends to bring out humor among us. I guess it's part of our coping mechanism.

Eh, I doubt that, Leine's has been owned by Miller for years now. I will admit that I buy Leine's when I'm not in a particularly adventurous mood and just need something to drink, but I would also never want to drink it at a "Craft Beer Festival."

It's like a PB&J, good, easy, uncomplicated, and you know what you're getting... But if someone tried to serve it to me at a restaurant, I'd slap them in the face.

Nickel beer night was one of major league baseball promotions that resulted in forfeited games in the 1970s and is widely regarded as the second worst, if not worst promotion of all time. As I understand it, such promotions have been banned since because of the risks to spectators and the teams on the field. As a fan, I would prefer to go to a game where they gouge people for beer at the usual high rate or don't serve it at all.

Prohibition Night brought to you by the IRS?

It would be a hell of a lot more exciting and entertaining than any other game played by this team.

I'll say it again, bring on nickel beer night and for added kicks bring in Steve Dahl to blow up a bunch of MP3 players with Justin Bieber music on them.

I had a waiter recently describe Leinenkugel's Hoppin Helles as "it's their new one that's sort of like an IPA, reeeeally hoppy."

Wow. When I heard about this I thought, "Damn, if I can get something like a Rev IPA or Half Acre Daisy Cutter at the Cell, I might make the trek out there to do it." It certainly can get tiring drinking swill when watching a baseball game.

Imagine my disappointment.

Seriously, what were they thinking?
