Here’s some news making the rounds in the beer world:
-A Canadian passenger jet recently was forced to make an unscheduled landing. Not because of engine trouble or some sort of terror threat, though. The jet was brought down because some no-good passenger stole beer from the beverage cart and then tried to flush the empty cans down the airplane’s toilet.
-SABMiller reports that the difficult market has beer sales down.
-A New York college has banned beer pong because of swine flu concerns.
-I can’t do a better job of explaining this story, so I’ll just paste the lead here: “A beer advertisement featuring Snow White blowing smoke rings while lying in bed with seven semi-naked (dwarfs) has reportedly left Disney fuming.” You can find the story here.
-Anheuser-Busch is buying all the ad time on this week’s episode of “Saturday Night Live” to push its new Bud Light Golden Wheat. On a side note, blog reader Dave had this to say about Bud Light Golden Wheat: “Just had first bottle of BL golden wheat, delicious. First Budweiser product I have liked. My family is laughing at me because I have always disliked Budweiser. If you like (hefeweizens), give this a try.” Britney Spears, Garth Brooks, Barack Obama, Angelina Jolie, Dancing with the Stars, baseball playoffs, hot air balloon, Megan Fox, balloon boy
