    The price of hops skyrocketed last year, due to a crop failure (in Europe, IIRC) which caused an international shortage.

    That accounts for some of the price increases in our Barley-Pop.

    I was waiting for you to chime in, hlothery.

    "Is that European or common beer?"
    No pithy comments available at this time.
    Please check back later.

    *Sigh* You're so young ...

    The minimum legal* age for drinking was 18, but until you were 21, you could only buy & consume 3.2% ('three-two') beer - and believe me; it takes an awful lot of that to get any kind of a buzz on.

    AFAIK, there was no alcohol percentage limitation on anything else.

    The drinking age is still 18. It may not be the law, but as a person who oversees university campus housing I can assure you it is the near universal practice.

    True, but we're also right next door to the beer Mecca known as Wisconsin.

    "I don't always drink beer, but if I do" I prefer Franziskaner Hefewietzen. However, Blue Moon has a summer ale called Honey Moon which is mighty good!

    No problems getting alcohol in San Antonio. However, I did have to "join" a private club once in a Dallas restaurant to buy wine. I've heard that has changed now, though.

    I actually wasn't referencing the 3.2 thing, since I wasn't drinking age (or quite possible alive) back then.

    No, they used to have some limit that kept out higher gravity beers - this goes back to the late 90's or early 2000's. I remember because I wanted a certain Barley Wine and I had to drive up to Michigan to get it. These days, I can easily find the 8-10%+ beers if I want them.

    OK; in that time period, I was here, not in Ohio. I musta' missed a lot in that decade.

    There are no drunks native to Pittsburgh. We are descended from men of steel sinew and fists of granite. Of women that kept them in line. We are weaned on a shot and a beer ( not much different than our mother's milk). We are Professional Drinkers.

    I'm quite proud of my drinking heritage. We do in fact have some screwed up laws though. I would love to get one of those state store jobs however.

    A friend of mine is a store manager and there is always the threat of privatization around contract time and he also has to work some Sundays. I am no sure but I also believe that the government agency has a private CEO making it a high risk state career.

    I do like the changes in Pennsylvania there is better liquor and spirit selection and the beer stores have all my favorite beers including Tusker from South Africa, and all the fine Czech, German, and Belgium brands. It gets overwhelming at times when you are set on one brand and get browsing, it's coming down to saying hello to the manager as I enter the store and ask what do they have new and unusual. Also there has been two upstart wineries in my area so things seem to be reaching out to consumer demands.

    I don't mine the other laws I can live in a place where there is no age restrictions or laws to blue laws and a black market. Just get the drunks off the road, make the place like Europe.
    If one cannot command attention by one's admirable qualities one can at least be a nuisance
