The Brewers of Europe

The Brewers of Europe is a group that I automatically feel kinship with. They have been responsible for some great times in all of our lives, and we should not forget that.

They also speak a lot of sense.

“Given that the extent and nature of any problems varies greatly from country to country, any pan-European anti-alcohol regulation will not work. For example, trying to pluck policies from Sweden and impose them on Italy would be a recipe for failure.
Whilst they are of course correct, their argument works for just about anything that the EU does. For this reason it is likely to fall on deaf ears.

Whee I'm living, this is no joke. The way they banned it was to increase the excise duty fivefold and ban old excise stamps. Result -all alcohol gone except for winos' rotgut. Charming situation. They say they'll resolve it and everyone smiles.
