    That's insane. I'm personally of the belief that nowadays everyone is offended way too easily, but that stuff just can't happen. Most basic principles of discrimination.

    If you consider Paramus close to MetLife they got a single case of it yesterday at the Fairway on Route 17. $22.99. Have to ask the guys managing the craft beer section if they have it but, they are both super friendly. Picked one up yesterday afternoon, might get lucky if you head up today.

    It's especially amazing that the employee who discriminated wasn't fired; just "reprimanded."

    They better hope that those impacted don't have the time and legal resources to pursue this, since - especially in this current climate - that business would be shut down fairly promptly.

    Also just as worse are the people today giving the business 5 stars cuz "uh, they didn't discriminate against me, so everything's A-OK!" That type of self-absorption leaves me with no words.

    So you think people should review a business based on someone else's experience (or hearsay about someone else's experience on an internet message board), rather than their own experience?

    I'm all for not shopping somewhere because of shitty busy practices, but I think a "I've never been there but my friends brother's cousin said they were mean to dog owners, One Star" pile on is really isn't appropriate. Perhaps people who have shopped there in the past think they generally do a good job but perhaps an idiot employee did something really stupid, and would hate to see a local business close because of internet outrage?

    Right. Lost in all this is the fact that the store had 10 bottles. From what i read the primary complainant is someone who gets around and hunts down these hard to get beers. So the story is, a group of people came in together, some kid behind the counter panicked because he didn't want to sell out the whole stash, and he came up with a hasty, poorly-thought out reason to not sell all those bottles to this one group.
    I'm not even sure it makes the kid sexist. If the woman had asked for hers first my guess is he would have tried to deny the man. And then this group would still have complained, but for a different reason.

    And even if the kid did this because he is a misogynist, it definitely should not reflect poorly on the business as a whole. These people are not victims.

    They acknowledged that the discrimination took place, and that they were incompetent enough to leave an untrained employee alone for a major bottle release without any upper management in-store. Actually, that SHOULD reflect poorly on the business as a whole. That's enough objective data to definitively conclude it's not a place I'd want to spend any $$ at, and definitely reflects poorly on the business as a whole.

    The "I've never been there but my friends brother's cousin said they were mean to dog owners, One Star" reviews are mainly there to counter-act friends and family of the store owners that are breathlessly defending the business and handing out 5 stars, while calling others liars, in the comments -- even after the business acknowledged the incident took place.

    You're going to have over-reactionary 1-star and 5-star reviews in a case like this, and they tend to average out. Those handing out 5 stars and saying "Welp, it didn't happen to me so I don't care!" are just fueling the fire for 1-star reviews of that ilk, and vice versa.

    Sure, I guess it would be more practical if only those three people involved left a review based on the incident and others didn't pile on, but there are numerous reviewers saying it's not the first sexist experience they've had at the store. Sometimes it just takes one person to speak up to open up the flood gates over past behavior, as recent news events clearly show.

    A lot of guessing going on here without any context.

    What's known is they left a clearly unqualified employee without any guidelines for the release as a whole, without any upper management in store. That's a shitty run business no matter how you look at it, so why would it be surprising that they would also hire someone who's sexist, when they're not even capable of operating a bottle release?

    I am guessing that the kid made an honest mistake and would have done the same thing to the man that he did to the woman.. You are guessing that he had a sexist intent. Which is worse?

    You're in South Jersey correct? Cork and Bottle in Westmont has them, but they are 35 bucks. I sprang for one, because I don't really care about the mark-up if it means I don't have to go seeking it out. The 10 bucks or whatever is worth the convenience for me.

    Except for the fact that he sold bottles to two men behind the woman so there goes that theory...
