Soaring Gas Price Good News for Beer Drinkers in Chicago

Chicago Pub Slashes Pint Prices Inverse to Gas Increases

<img width="160" height="98" align="left" src="" alt="">Whether you're a motorist looking to drown your sorrows or a cyclist celebrating the rising cost of gas, a Chicago bar is introducing a promotion that will make everyone thirst for higher gas prices. The Handlebar, a bicycle themed bar and restaurant in Wicker Park is lowering beer prices as gas prices soar above $3 a gallon at the pump.
&quot;The beer pump is and forever will be affordable to hard working Americans,&quot; declared Handlebar co-owner Josh Deth. &quot;The European Community has managed to maintain reasonable beer prices through times of high gas prices and we should too.&quot;

According to <a href=""></a>;, the BP station down the street from Handlebar is now selling gas at $2.99 a gallon. Once gas hits $3 a gallon, pints of Goose Island 312 Urban Wheat Ale will be discounted to $3 from their normal price of $3.75. As gas prices continue to climb, beer price will continue to fall according what will be called the &quot;Inverse Petrol-O-Matic Beer Pricing Scheme.&quot; For example,

$3/gallon gas = $3 pints
$4/gallon gas = $2 pints
$5/gallon gas = $1 pints
$6/gallon gas = free pints

In addition to saving its customers money on beer, Handlebar also promotes alternative to driving such as bicycling, walking and public transit. The restaurant has private bike parking in its back yard and supports several bicycling advocacy organizations such as the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation.

Like most people I live a hectic life and who has the time for much exercise? Thanks to xtracycle now I do. By using my bike for daily activities I can get things done and get an hour plus work out in 15 minutes extra of my time, not a bad deal and beats taking the extra time going to the gym. In case you are still having trouble being motivated; the National Center of Disease Control says that inactivity is the #2 killer in the United States just behind smoking. ( ) Get out there and start living life! I can carry home a full shopping cart of groceries, car pool two kids or just get lost in the great outdoors camping for a week. Well I got go, another outing this weekend.
