Open thread Wednesday: More beer

This is the place to come for discussion of off-topic topics. It's also a good place to suggest story ideas. Here's an item from AP today:

Correction: More Beer story
Eds: Members who used BC-More Beer, sent May 8 under a Chicago dateline, are asked to use the following story.
CHICAGO (AP) — In a May 8 story about beer making a comeback, The Associated Press, relying on data provided by ACNielsen marketing information, erroneously reported a period when beer sales totaled $4.071 billion. The sales occurred over 12 weeks ending April 22, not 12 months.

Not to say it's a slow news day, but by my calculation, that's $560.93 of beer a second:
