In St. Louis, beer is served in buckets. Or rather, bottles placed in buckets filled with ice. Why? No clue. Maybe the hot summers?
Wastefulness aside, the problem I have with the “bucket special” is this: it’s not a standard unit of measure. Is it five beers or six? Five beers for $15 isn’t really a deal at $3 per. Six beer for $15 is $2.50 per, which means you basically buy five at $3 and get one free. Better deal? Clearly.
So STL, figure your stuff out. When I see the words “bucket special”, I should know exactly what it is that I’m ordering for breakfast*.
