One of my favorite movies of all time is Strange Brew. The story of two dumb Canadian brothers Bob and Doug Mckenzie, who get swallowed into a huge crime and solve it by mistake. That movie never would have happened if it weren't for an old Canadian Law.
What's the difference between a Miller and a Budweiser? Even less if parent company Anheuser-Busch has its way; the company has announced plans to acquire MillerCoors - a move that would allow them to control 70% of American beer sales and 30% of the worlds beer business.
I recently had the opportunity to sample some of the craft beers being made by Big Wood Brewery in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. The craft beer market is heating up in our region and it's nice to see local companies having success.
Following our beer sampling event, we had a few leftover sampling glasses laying around the station. Looking the glassware over, the totally random question of how much weight these glasses would support became the center of conversation.
I've always wondered if I was drinking the right beer with the movie I was enjoying. Maybe I didn't like a movie because I was drinking the wrong beer. Jamie Oliver has attempted to match 3 movies with 3 beers, Grease, Back To The Future, and Jaws.
