In case you hadn't realized we are slowly turning the tide.

I stumbled upon that little gem today and had a couple of laugh out loud moments, namely: "Who knew that Americans needed temperature-sensitive packaging to tell them when a beer is cold enough to drink? (It's always a bad sign when a company seems to think that its customers are morons.)"

*edit
Yeah the link won't work... I think it's because HBT routes through FYURL, copy paste and it should get you there, sorry to waist everyone's time...

*edit 2

Thanks to passedpawn, we figured out that a tiny url is clickable so click away, sorry again.

I think we all know what the OP is getting at. Coor's has the "windows" in their cases to see the mountains turn color on the cans when the beer is cold. I guess if you're going to drink Coors, you need all the help you can get since you're obviously not too smart about beer in the first place.

That didn't work either - they want me to subscribe to Barrons.

Could it be this article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...?KEYWORDS=beer

[Hopes link works...]

Edit - nope, that one doesn't work either - they keep redirecting the the subscription link.
