Walgreens stores to carry their own brand of beer
Brandon called the other night in a fit of glee. I hadn't heard him this excited since the Eastern Washington Eagles won the National Championship.
I had to actually wait about five minutes for his squeals of excitement to calm down before he could explain why he was so excited.
Now his dollar would go further.
The reason for Brandon's new found fortune is the fact that the Drugstore chain Walgreens will now be carrying their own brand of beer.
The Walgreens private label, called Big Flats 1901 is dirt cheap too. The cost will be around $3 for a six-pack and around $11.50 for a case of 24 cans.
"In this tough economy, consumers are looking for value and ways to make their money go (further)," a Walgreens rep told the Chicago Tribune in the article. "Big Flats 1901 offers our customers a premium lager at a great price."
Winery Exchange is where Big Flats 1901 is made. They also provide private-label beer for the grocery chains Costco and Trader Joe's.
