They knew what they were doing. This is Marketing at its best! One little tweet, reading innocently enough with a possible backlash. Then they just apologize later saying it was never intended to be taken that way after they start trending... Best bang for the buck they could have asked for....

No matter where you are, plan ahead and call for a ride. If you’re in Pittsburgh, the public transit system will be jammed pack or wait for a taxi is so long that the guy driving a jitney is starting to seem attractive, here are some options for you.

Remember that time in 2006 when you drank #craftbeer malt liquor from +Dogfish Head Craft Brewery with +Brad Reloaded. Ahhh those were the early days of +Should I Drink That

My favorite of theirs is the Jealous Again EP.   That's some hard drinking music! I can remember playing it once and in the space of time it took to play we polished off a whole case of Mickey's Stingers. That was back when they had the big mouth bottles. I'm pretty sure I have the picture sleeve single of TV Party too though.

#TBT to EP22 when we had a malfunctioning cork in a bottle of Grotten Brown (Pierre Celis Signature) and +Brad Reloaded  had to get creative.

This may come as a surprise but "beer made people sick" and "Schlitz" are in the same story.

"It tastes like beer and looks like paint." This is a brief history of green beer.

Way more malty than I would expect for a red and once that starts to dissipate... BOOM hit with hop bite. A little pricey at $14.99/6pk.

If you're at Market District look to see how its priced on shelf and then if it's in the Mix n Match

The Small BREW Act would cut that tax in half for the first 60,000 barrels. So instead of paying $7 for each barrel, brewers would pay $3.50. The Fair BEER Act would eliminate the federal excise tax for brewers who produce up to 7,143 barrels.

For every barrel between 7,143 and 60,000, brewers would pay $3.50 a barrel. For every barrel between 60,001 and 2 million, brewers would pay $16 per barrel. And after 2 million barrels, brewers would pay $18 per barrel.

Craft beer is a rapidly growing industry, and Washington lawmakers have noticed. Two proposed bills would lower the federal excise tax for small brewers.
