The End of Free Beer

One of the problems of living in the Maritimes when you are a news junky is the lack of local news. Nothing happens. There is no crime. And when there is, people know the people committing the crimes. Criminals therefore plead guilty before any juicy court details appear for journalist to report. It is sad really.

On the flip side, the local papers go out of their way to fill their papers (the paper is plentiful here in New Brunsiwick) with out of town news such as this:

The end of free beer in the states. 


"ORLANDO, Fla. - There are no free lunches in life, but one could always count on free beer at Anheuser-Busch theme parks. Until now.
The brewer has stopped giving free samples in hospitality centres at its SeaWorld theme parks in Orlando, San Antonio and San Diego and its Busch Gardens parks in Tampa and Williamsburg, Va.
Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks spokesman Fred Jacobs says the free samples had a narrow appeal among park customers.
The brewer plans to build more restaurants and other venues geared toward families with children. Customers can still buy beer at some of the parks' existing venues.
The American brewer was bought last year by InBev to form the world's largest brewer: Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev SA."
