    A odd loop hole is preventing MillerCoors from selling their beer so they were ordered to remove all beer from store selves

    They make up 38% of beer sales. You know what else this does, less tax collected. How much tax do you think the state will lose because of a loss of sales on this beer. Sure, people will buy other beer, but I don't think they can make up 38%. If it lasts until October, Anheuser Busch will be the next one. They account for 48% of sales in the US.

    If Minnesotans can't drink beer, they might sober up, realize they're living in Minnesota and cheering for the Vikings, and make something of their lives!

    There's always a silver lining! ;)

    It's only American beer, I think this would be a good thing for all US states.

    Yeah, cause Molson and Labatt are top notch beers. Settle down.


    Although my sister lives in Guelph, and I must say I'm a pretty big fan of Alexander Keith's.

    Molson and Labatt are decent (esp. Canadian and Blue respectively) and much better than anything Millers, Coors, and Budweiser offers (or at least the kinds I have had the displeasure of drinking). When I say American beer that is what I mean, the big company's are tasteless crap in my view. I have had lots of good American beer, just never from those corporations.

    Keith's is amazing beer, you should try Moosehead if you ever get a chance. Both very similar but I have always preferred Moosehead.

    I always bring back two cases of Keith's everytime I visit my sister. The IPA and the Amber.

    Beer is the answer, What is your question? (I previously used that line in the Matt Flynn thread but it seemed to apply here as well)
