Because Sam's overcharged people who didn't know anything about wine. If you know what you are doing Binny's is one of the great places to buy wine in the US.

It means you are wasting your time defending a crap brew like Stella. I just don't understand why you are so personally vested in defending this brand. While I am personally amused at your loyalty to something so mediocre, I understand that we all have our guilty pleasures, for instance I really like Skippy Chunky Peanut Butter. Its just hard to understand why you think something that is marginally better than Miller but almost 50% more expensive is worth arguing about. I mean if Jif or Peter Pan was that much cheaper than Skippy, I'd buy them, no question.
Maybe you were strongly affected by A Streetcar Named Desire, and you have to defend Stella no matter what, but your devotion to a brand which is not your first choice is kind of weird.
