Boycott Budweiser?

Don’t mind if I do! I’ve been “boycotting” Bud products for as long as I’ve been drinking beer, but Tom Pearson reports that there’s a reason besides taste to do so: In Birmingham, the local distributor is actively opposing legislation that would lift the state’s ban on beers that are high in alcohol or served in bottles larger than a pint — in other words, lots of really, really good beers.

Just brewing Budweiser is crime enough, but actively preventing Alabamans from having the option of something better is even worse. I feel your pain, Tom. Luckily I can soothe mine with a big bottle of Allagash. I’ll be thinking of you.

    Yeah, liquor laws and especially beer laws here suck. Many, many good beers are unavailable. : (

    One must always remain an enemy of humbug.

    Go ahead and boycott that leaves more for real beer drinkers like me. The most ridiculous thing I have ever heard of. Get a life and do something that really matters to the world.
