Beer Wars


I watched "Beer Wars" the other day (currently rated #5 out of the 'Most Popular Documentaries' category at IMDB).  The film is certainly biased toward the plight of the craft brewer... but that being said I think that is probably how it should be.  Apparently Budweiser puts more money toward beer legislation than all the tobacco and firearms donors combined.

I hate to see the big guy tread on the little guy, and after watching this little flick the wife and I determined never to purchase a product from InBev again.

Here are just a few:
