Here is news making the rounds in the beer world:
-Here’s a little something on Southwest Airlines now offering Corona Extra on its flights. Add that to current selections Bud Light, Miller Light, Michelob Ultra and Heineken. Can someone get some craft beer on airplanes sometime soon?
-Mustang Brewing is having a Washita Wheat pint night from 6 to 9 p.m. today at Old Chicago South.
-Going to the World Cup of soccer this summer? Did you know that inside stadiums, you can only get Budweiser products? Miller — the predominant supplier of beer consumed in South Africa — is allowed to sell its beer outside of stadiums, but only in unmarked bottles/cans.
-In more World Cup and Miller news (thanks for passing along the link, Jay), Miller has designed a can that when opened turns into a cup that can be used for refills. The company is hoping the design will cut down on belligerent soccer hooligans pelting each other with beer cans.
