I just shaved today and didn't get carded at the store to buy beer. I can almost always count on getting carded when I'm clean shaven. I wonder if the beer I bought is one reason I did not get carded. I picked up a 6er of Abita Restoration Ale and a big bottle of Abita Abbey Ale.
I think that underage drinkers are more likely to buy Natty Light or Bud Light or something along those lines. I wonder how effective it would be for underage kids to try buying better beer as a signaling device that they are older.
