I am a big fan of the super bowl beer displays, especially involving an approximation of a field with goalposts. The more elaborate the better

Oh yeah those fucking rock, good call. I particularly love it when they build it so individual beer bottles are the "players" on the field: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/9f/2d/02/9f2d028a1d806c48e854683ee468d0c8.jpg

Life's rich tapestry, Christina. We stand in awe of its beauty.

My favorite beer store (distributor) isn't into fancy displays but it has an increasingly diverse stock of varieties that keeps me busy checking out the aisles.

Sounds like your favorite beer store/distributor is SLACKING, Don. You're in PA, right? I guess it's a little different there because of the commonwealth's particularly byzantine application of the three-tier system, eh?

Almost all of the distributors around here close on Sunday so if I fail to remember to stock up, I can get 2 6-packs at the grocery store. Except the grocery store closest to me doesn't approve of beer or wine so even that is a 20-mile expedition. I suppose I could get some in town down at "The Hook" but the smokers have made it difficult to patronize.

I think I speak for us all when I say I'd like to hear a whole lot more about "The Hook," Don

The only bar in the township is named The Frosty Hook. It's got decent food at reasonable prices. Nothing fancy. A lot of tobacco smoke. But the beer cooler is right next to the door so it's possible to get a six-pack of Yuengling, or Busch, or Schlitz -- basic brews.

I haven't actually laid eyes on this myself, and it's not beer, but I think the Easter bunny soda end-caps are fellow travelers to beer-case floor displays, and they live rent-free in my head because of how disturbing they are.

And here's "Welcome to Gilead" disturbing:
