Minnesotan beer

My fear of the beer culture in Minnesota has been practically washed away as I stumbled upon this little tidbit of information: craft beer sales in Minnesota went up 75 percent in 2008, versus a 5.8 percent national average rise.

It's true — go ahead and read all about Minnesota's finer taste and my inkling for beer on a budget.

And, speaking of beer on a budget, has anybody ever heard of the Beer Guru in Green Bay? My sister sent me this article, and even though its from back in February, I'm going to share it with you now.

The Beer Guru must have been feeling a lot of pain the day he decided to write this article, which served as his hunt for beer that will help you save money. This beer-guzzling writer taste tested beer in order to find the cheapest price with the 'best' quality — and I use the term 'best' lightly, as his list of beverages included ones such as Hamm's Premium and Pabst Blue Ribbon. But, its a relatively entertaining read.

Lastly, I leave you with this joke about One Penny Beer. While its not the best joke I've heard so far, its fun enough to dream about walking to a bar and getting a pint for a penny.
