Two different conversations. Those high-falutin beer snobberies can and do exist everywhere, but are probably at their highest density in Logan Square, Wicker Park, Bucktown, Lincoln Park, Lincoln Square areas. You CAN find plenty of bars with lawnmower beers anywhere, but these places that try to take some preachy moral stand by loudly refusing to carry them can piss right off. Offering the token PBR can for $5 does not absolve them of the sin.

There's an entirely separate issue with the availability of Bud products in certain south and northwest side neighborhoods. Again, it's by no means universal, but if you pay close attention you'll find a lot of bars that explicitly do not carry it for personal and political reasons that have nothing to do with with beer snobbery. Things have changed in the last 4 years so that bias is eroding, but it's still there.
