    SALMON, Idaho (AFP) - Like apple pie and baseball, beer has achieved favored status in the lexicon of American traditions, with US sales of the drink outstripping purchases of liquor and wine by billions of dollars.
    Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood. - H.L. Mencken

    a while ago, the molson canadian brewery in my city had its workers go on strike. they are resolved now and have been back to work for a while but for a while there was a threat of no beer for summer.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Supply & demand. Increase the cost of the hops & pass it on to the consumer.

    LOL! Why should we have to pay higher taxes on cigarettes than drinkers do on alcohol?
