Oddly enough, there is a Mercedes plant in Tuscaloosa and there are a good number of Germans there.

Of course there aren't a whole lot of widely consumed beers in Germany that exceed 6% ABV. The relatively few that are higher than that are mostly Bockbiere from Bavaria. I'd guess that 95% of beer consumed in Germany is within 0.5% of 4.8 ABV (excluding nonalcoholic beer and Biermischgetraenke).

You have to understand that us southerners speak differently when we're talking to our own kind. Not that I'm defending his point of view or anything, but don't jump to the conclusion that someone can't form a coherent thought just because he's speaking a foreign dialect.

There is a whole lot of that "it drink pretty good don't it ?" comment that is bound to be lost on someone who's not from here.

Anyway, I expect that they will pass it. If I'm not mistaken a similar measure in the last legislature passed the senate but failed to pass the house. And the governor has already said he'd sign it. I'm looking forward to having some better choices of beers when we go out to eat and having access to somethings that I've wanted to try for a long time but only get the opportunity to try them when we travel.

ps

Right on with your signature - lol Can I join ? People should have some balls and be men instead of letting the ladies run the show.

That was incredibly funny, but also incredibly crappy for residents of Alabama. How in the name of fook did a uneducated arsehole like that ever get elected? His grammar is worse than that of some grade 1 students I know.

Is that a Wolfenstein 3-D character I spy in your avatar, Chupacabras?

It's called gerrymeandering. Drawing a political district around political/racial/other lines. Parts of Alabama are close to third world economies (the Black Belt region). They are old agricultural areas that haven't caught up to the rest of the state.

Congrats Alabama residents, hopefully it will pass in the Senate. Good luck the rest of the way.

Yes, um good luck. I find it incredible that the Land of the Free ... has such a limited view of what free means. But no country's perfect, it just seems that brewing/etc should be one of those unalienable rights kinda like how no ones gonna tell you that you aren't allowed to cook your own food.
