Horrible news

The price of a case of Miller Lite is now up to 17.59.
(I immediately contacted Larry with this news)

Yesterday I caught the Miller guy in the store and asked
why it was so high. He said it's going even higher.
There's a shortage of hops and barley or something
and all beer makers will be going up. Miller Bud and Coors
buy huge lots so they won't go up as much as some of
the smaller premium beer.

I'm contacting my senator right now.

I'll buy Natural Light when the prices get nuts. They are $9.99 case and poured in a glass or cup you can't tell the difference.

Wittdog,

I personally don't drink but a glass or two of wine once or twice a year... I live in a dry city but the county is wet. Most people head up the road to Randleman, NC (where Richard Petty lives) to buy their beer. Then of course they DRIVE back home. We were coming back from Greensboro on highway 220 about a month ago and it was 11:30PM and they had the entire south bound lanes blocked doing the DWI check. It took about 30 minutes to go one mile. The check was between Randleman the wet city and Asheboro the dry city.

I do drink rootbeer.
