Here's an interesting artical I just came across that talks about the continuing decline of some of the top BMC labels.

If they're free, I don't object too much. Besides, MGD boils brats very, very well.

Speaking of boiled brats ( sorry this is off topic) has anyone else ever wondered if the beer infused with brats would be tasty? It not dont try it.
