    Beverage

    There will be no shine from down South this year. Some may view this as a good thing (if you had to much).

    Canadian beer has the alcohol content on it, but us beer doesn't, weird.
    We list the % content on everything else, liquor, wine and some other things but not beer. Why?

    Great question. Since I'm a little hung over [wedding last nite] and bored I looked into it.... They are talking about the myth that Canadian beer is stronger than American beer......


    Another reason is you are allowed to market the alcohol strength in Canada, but not in the United States. You cannot advertise “this beer will get you drunk” due to alcohol laws, nor can you promote your brand based on the alcohol content. Different states even have different regulations on how strong the beer can be. These help contribute to the “Canadian beer is stronger” myth.


    Another cool fact I found was that before prohibition, most US beer was heavy beer, like Brittish beer. During prohibition, beer was mixed with water to make more money off of it. After prohibition, the American palate had changed. Now most beer is lighter, watery tasting beer.....

    Another funny fact is that since Bud, coors, and Miller are all foreign owned now, the largest US owned brewer is Sam Adams.
