And Speaking of Drinking and Recession and Whatever . . .

A few days back, I mentioned that Jeff Alworth at Beervana had asked his readers how the recession had affected their drinking habits. His final results are here.

But then Jeff started wondering about the price of beer (it's what we like about Jeff; his mind never stops...) and that led to this and this. Make sure to read the comments.

And then Patrick Emerson, our man-on-the-economics-beat, weighed in with this. (I'm still hoping Patrick will re-think the black background....) Fascinating, all of it.
