My roommate works with a bunch of outsourced guys in the rice region - and he said they're paying double for rice what they were last year. Probably still quite cheap by any standard, but double price none the less.
I hate how AB bashed the craft brew, then tried to sound like they are craft brew. LAME. I saw Miller had a 'Miller Lite Craft Brew Series' or something retarded like that. Anything that said Miller LITE and decent beer really stood out as an oxymoron to me.
I do like watching the big boys fight though...
