I can understand the article. I have some friends that have backyard chickens but they are more of a pet than anything else.Article blaming the hipsters for abandoning their backyard chickens:
The owner of a capybara in the town I work for was features on the TLC reality show "My Crazy Obcession."City chickens are so 2011. Real hipsters have moved on to capybaras. You probably haven't heard of them.
I wish the grocery stores in my parts carried the pre-skewered city chicken. That used to always be one of my favorite dinners as a kid. And we aren't even Polish!And here I thought Buffalo was a Polish City!
Something similar to this happened in a gentrifying neighborhood a few years ago in Grand Rapids. Graffiti, threatening letters. But this one also included arson. The FBI was even called in based on the language in the letters. To my knowledge, no one was ever apprehended.
Oddly enough, I have some Miller High Life in my fridge at the moment, and the last beer I bought in a bar was a Lone Star (because at my local bar here in Texas, it's the cheapest beer they offer).Back in high school our go to beer was Miller High Life. It was really special if we could get away with finding Lone Star.
I thought that was going to be the case, too!I thought for sure this thread was resurrected to post this article which has made the rounds lately: Man Inadvertently Proves That Hipsters Look Alike By Mistaking Photo As Himself.
Yeah, I noticed you frequently see cans of Modelo floating around on BBQ Pit Boys videos. Aren't they from around Texas?Oddly enough, I have some Miller High Life in my fridge at the moment, and the last beer I bought in a bar was a Lone Star (because at my local bar here in Texas, it's the cheapest beer they offer).
There's another beer that I would throw in that group of nostalgia beers, even though I never heard of it growing up: Modelo. It's like Mexican High Life and is also usually pretty cheap around here.
Yes interesting divide: older (pioneering) hipsters are disgusted at the recent co-optation of the guiding principles which weren't a clothing uniform as much as a way of thinking. Now that corporations have gotten wise, it's become all style and no substance ... the latest fashion more than craftsmanship, etc (J. Bieber anyone?). Hence why you never call a pioneer hipster a "hipster" - you're likely to be punched in the face.I've been accusing others of being hipsters long before you even heard of the term
Good like finding Piels. If you do, it's probably past its "drink by" date. Piels was a Brooklyn/east coast brewer.Midwestern working class turned hipster beers I wish I could find in easier NYC:
That was my dad's go-to beer for years. I can remember him paying $3.99 for a case of 24 long necks at the discount beverage place. I also remember he used to buy us candy cigarettes there. Ah, the good old days.In the 1970s, F. & M. Schaefer Brewing Company, another Brooklyn based brewer, bought the rights to the Piel Brothers label, and Schaefer continued to brew it at its Brooklyn and Allentown, Pennsylvania, plants. In the late 1980s, Schaefer was subsequently bought out by Stroh Brewery Company of Detroit, Michigan. Under Stroh, Piels' sales stabilized for a time, thanks to new and improved package designs and good point of sale advertising. However, Stroh succumbed to marketing pressure from industry giants Anheuser-Busch and Miller, and threw in the towel after 149 years in business. Most of the Stroh brands, including Piels, were licensed to Pabst Brewing Company. Pabst discontinued the Piels label by April 2015.
Oh yeah, Mr. Terminator? What is your go-to gluten free beard wax? And how many nineteenth century Wade & Butcher straight razors have you rescued from the bourgeois and then fostered until you found just the right artesian barbers collective? Well?This Volvo 240 driving, Canada emegrating, tight jean and cardigan wearing, Non Profit grey side workin’, NYC reared resident Millennial Punk Hipster of Cyburbia always has 1-3 cans of the following beers on deck at any given time.

Definitely not a hipster (more like outdoorsy/granola), but I collect and restore straight razors... or at least I did. It's funny, the reason I started doing it was two-fold: 1) I hate buying razors that are basically disposable 2) men have such few rituals left, that I felt like it was important to celebrate the act of shaving. Definitely a learning curve and something everyone should know how to do (like driving a manual transmission).Oh yeah, Mr. Terminator? What is your go-to gluten free beard wax?

EDIT: I'm not really calling you out personally. I respect the 240. Just stereotyping for fun.
