Letter of the Day

We'll drink to that!

  • Print

I understand the pain for many beer drinkers with the price increases on their favourite brew. I disagree, however, with Glen Stefanec's comment in his March 12 letter, He's off the suds, that he will now run to the border to get cheap beer.

For one thing, the cost in gas of making a run to the border for Budweiser mitigates the price increase, and you've also just spent it polluting the environment. Second, it's for Budweiser. Have people ever thought of trying a real beer?

In case some people didn't notice, local breweries did not see their prices increase. These breweries produce far superior beers (they use four ingredients as compared to over 100) compared to cheap, mass-produced American swill, and they help support the local economy.

Why not save money on beer by learning to make your own? With new advances in home-brewing technology and easy availability of high-quality malt, hops and yeast, it's quite simple to make beer at home that is better than what most people buy.
