Brewers across the globe are hiking prices to compensate for lower volumes and higher commodity costs in the recession.

Freakin' slackers! Drink more beer.

I cut back... Not in quantity but in quality. From Bud Light to Busch Lite. :specnatz:

They serve beer at the Texans games? I thought they only had soda, water, and Budweiser products. I have yet to see a Shiner there.

In a related study, smuggling flasks of vodka and rum inside the stadium has increased!!!!!!!!!

I can't swear to it, but I think they have Shiner at the Bull Pen Pub.

Shiner is indeed sold at Reliant, although it would be nice if they would expand to more offerings from Shiner besides just Bock.

I saw beer was still a great value at $7.50 at the game Sat night.

Blame Bush. It's way more fashionable and creates a nice word play on Annheuser-Busch.

Bud Light quality?? That's an oxymoron if I have ever seen one LOL. If Busch Light is worse I don't even want to imagine how awful that stuff must be.

Just drink tap water Bill. It probably has the same effect and is even cheaper.

Yes, I admit I am a beer snob. ;)

Meh, it keeps me relatively sober. (Just don't ask me to 'splain relatively :) ).

They have 14oz $5 beers. I drank them on Saturday. They had the same thing last year too. $5 14oz drafts, it's nothing new.

Texans raise prices & serve less!
 
:barman: Ouch!
