Financial Advice for the Beer Drinker
 
A little something sent to me by an accountant friend of mine:

Here is some important financial advice:

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Nortel stock one
year ago, it would now be worth $49.00.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the
original $1,000.00.

With WorldCom, of $1000.00 you would have had less
than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one
year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the cans
for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have made
$214.00. Based on the above, the best current
investment advice is to drink heavily and
recycle.........

It's called the 401-Keg Plan

Happy Investing! :D

Heinecken is the exception. It's much better in a can than it is in a bottle. I think that green glass skunks the beer on its long boat ride from Amsterdam to the U.S.

Wait a minute...

Who said that they don't put good beer in cans!! Old Chub Scottish Ale from Oskar Blues and Dales Pale Ale (from the same brewery) are fantastic!

Old Chub:
4.05 (BeerAdvocate.com)
3.67 (RateBeer.com) 91 percentile

Dales Pale Ale:
3.9 (BeerAdvocate.com)
3.75 (RateBeer.com) 94 percentile



Compare that with Heinkeken
2.7 (BeerAdvocate.com)
2.17 (RateBeer.com) 10 percentile


But that's about it.

Wait a sec...let's figure this out. $1,000 of beer @ an average price of about $12 for a case. That's 2,000 cans of beer. At a nickle per can, that's $100.

Your calculations (based on a nickle return rate which, in itself is high) figure an average cost per case of about $5.62. Even at a bulk discount, I'm pretty sure it's not going to be THAT low, even for beer on the cheaper end.

Second off, drinking between 2,000 and 4,280 cans of beer (the amount in your proposal) in one year is a very, very bad decision. That's a 6er a day minimum EVERY day of the year.

Our local microbrew Capitol Brewery in Madison, WI makes good beer and puts it in cans so that those of us who like to drink decent beer can take their products to local parks--- where glass containers are illegal and bulk delivery systems attract LEO attention.
