  • MillerCoors - Combating Water Shortages In The Name of Beer

    In recent years, torrid heat and devastating drought have depleted the once ample fresh water supply here in the US. After spending last summer in Southern Texas, I witnessed some of the hardships faced by many residents of the Lone Star State. Many professional and amateur farmers have had to cut or even eliminate herds of animals because the scarcity of rain has ruined once lush pastures.

  • Illinois Beer Consumption Drops: Should Beer Lovers Worry?

    According to the Washington D.C.’s Beer Institute, Illinoisans are consuming less beer and the drop off is substantial. In 2007, the per capita consumption of beer in Illinois was 56 six-packs. Now, five years later, this consumption has dropped by 18 brews a year, to 53 six-packs.
