Revenge of Stupid Beer News

It's been a while since the last Stupid Beer News, so here goes...

The Free Press recently did a roundup of people getting busted for DUIs. A sample:

2:20 a.m. May 12, Ford and Lotz: A woman is stopped for speeding in a 2002 Ford Taurus. She says she had a few beers after work. Half of a 12-pack of Bud Light is behind the driver's seat. Several empties are behind the passenger seat, and a half-full bottle is between the passenger seat and center console. She blows 0.12%. On the way to the police department, she says she has to urinate. At the station, she says, "Never mind. I just peed in your car. I couldn't hold it."
In other SBN, Hoosiers in South Bend won't be able to buy cheap crappy beer at baseball games any more, on account of them getting too unruly. The Hoosiers, that is.

But lovers of crap beer can take some comfort in the fact that some analysts see a price war looming between Bud, Miller, and Coors, purveyors of fine crap.

Meanwhile, some dude in Wisconsin -- which by some accounts consumes the most beer per capita of any state -- has invented a tap that pours faster and with less foam than traditional taps. Fills a glass in two seconds? Dude, why wait any longer than you have to to begin drinking?

And finally, the group Audioslave is suing Miller for using them in an ad without permission. They should also sue Miller for making shitty beer. Then again, I suppose they would not win that one. Class action, anyone?
