We could all use a good dose of beer news as we head into the weekend, so here are some beer links:
-Workers at a Tampa, Fla., trucking company showed up on a recent morning to find two tractor trailers holding $70,000 worth of beer gone. The cabs of the trucks were later found, but no trailers or beer.
-A model in Malaysia has been sentenced to being whipped with a cane six times after she was seen having a beer in a nightclub. Remind TTB to steer clear of Malaysia.
-Kid Rock’s American Badass Beer debuted last week at concerts in Detroit. The “American-style lager” will apparently be released soon in Texas, and then nationwide next year. I’ll say this: This beer has a pretty lofty name to live up to.
-The beer writer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports beer prices are up while the economy is down. The Thirsty Beagle thinks The Oklahoman should have a full-time beer writer, and it should be The Thirsty Beagle.
