The Big Money:* Is Big Beer drunk with power? - The Big Money- msnbc.com

I think this article is pretty decent, but it misses the biggest monopoly the big beer companies have over everyone else; the antiquated and absurdly flawed third party distribution system that America has in place. Maybe this price increase will actually lead to an investigation on big beer practices and changes can be made. Hopefully......

The funniest thing I've hear since moving to Oregon was a distributor trying to explain why the three-tier system was good for breweries and customers. He left out the enormous profits the distributors make for impeding commerce.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
