Smashburger and a beer? Hello, throwback!

Is this heaven? No, it’s Smashburger.

What a difference a beer makes—especially an extremely cheap one!

Smashburger, which currently has five locations in the Las Vegas Valley, already has some of the city's most delicious burgers—each burger is cooked in its own juices. But now the restaurant is upping the ante, courtesy of Pabst Blue Ribbon, Hamm's and Olympia. Purchase any menu item (I recommend the fried egg-topped Sin City Burger), and you get add a "throwback" beer for just one dollar.

I find it odd that I'm so excited about this. It's been some time since I threw back any of those three beers. When I was in college, my buddies and I used to refer to those as "lake beers," the type we would buy in ultra-bulk for lake trips because they were cheap and easy to drink. I've since graduated mostly to microbrews, not because PBR et al are bad, but ... tastes change, you know?

But man, the prospect of tearing into a juicy Smashburger and getting to wash it down with one of these babies just fills me with nostalgia for the good old days. Nice job, Smashburger!
