... provided that beer is Busch.
That's right, there's a marketing gimmick afoot! On Jan. 1, macro beverage giant Anheuser-Busch began tallying snowfall totals in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, Nebraska, North Dakota, and (for some reason) New York. Every inch recorded through March 21 can be translated into a dollar off Busch (maximum rebate of $30).
This weekend's blizzardy forecast could mean major beer savings, as we're looking at 7-9 inches in the Twin Cities:
Not really much change in the forecast. Snow begins later today, heaviest this afternoon/evening, lighter overnight, with STRONG northwest winds of 35 to 45 mph Saturday. Blowing and drifting snow on Saturday, with blizzard conditions likely in western Minnesota #mnwx #wiwx pic.twitter.com/bLvogupO7u— NWS Twin Cities (@NWSTwinCities) January 17, 2020
A 24-pack of Busch runs for $19.23, according to Walmart's grocery store.
You might be asking yourself: Is Busch good beer? Will the process of putting it in my tum-tum even be enjoyable? We checked with Jerard Fagerberg, the Chief Suds Correspondent for City Pages.
"I haven't drank it in like a decade, but it's probably not so bad," Fagerberg notes. "You certainly imagine it's worse than actually is."
There you have it!
