Kick-starting the economy - one beer at a time


Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, ‘It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver.’

Until I read these inspiring words spoken by Babe Ruth way back when, I was planning to take it easy this weekend and just sit on the patio while sipping one or two ice-cold Canadian Kokanee beers. But now I'm convinced the economy needs me, and 'tis the weekend to show your patriotism. I'm all for "Buy American" - not counting electronics, of course. So I plan to save a few August Schell Brewing Company (Minnesota) jobs this weekend. In fact, I pledge to create or save at least one job in New Ulm, MN, over the course of this weekend. As near as I can tell, I don't really need to show you any proof that I've done so - I just need to keep saying I did it over and over and over again. So... Grain Belt Premium anyone?
