In Search of the Elusive $1 Beer …


Tonight from 5 p.m. till 7 p.m., HB Burger will pour $1 pints of Heartland Brewery’s new “next generation” Indiana Pale Ale, an unfiltered beer made with four different types of hops. Should you want to stay up on deals like these, a new app just hit the iTunes store — Postabon, which can be downloaded for free, allows users to post discounts they’ve noticed at bars and restaurants as well as searching for nearby deals. Just a day out of the gate, it remains to be seen how well it’ll work — so far, the postings are a bit obvious and steer toward cheap beer (Two-dollar PBRs at Manitoba’s! Two-for-one drinks at local dives! Free pizza at Crocodile Lounge!). We can also imagine publicists abusing the tool, but it might be worth downloading for the next time you’re looking for an alternative to that $3.99 six-pack of Trader Joe’s Simpler Times.
