It does get annoying, BUT it happens all the time on here...Basically anytime something about beer or homebrewing gets written up in the mainstream press, we get a flood of threads.
The funny thing is, usually, we've usually talked about it at least a week or more before the flood of threads...or in this case years....
The first thread on here about it was in the first months after the election...and it resurfaces every 6 months or so, when another news outlet discovers this....
You have to realize that if you're seeing something beer related in the POPULAR press, that more than likely it first appeared in the brewing related press a few days or even weeks earlier, and since we have a lot of hardcore beer geeks on here, many of us subscribe to or tweet with one or more industry related outlets, the same ones that usually sent out the press release that the reporter who you just read about it from, read. And more than likely we've already played the discussion out before it hit the mainstream media.
