    Of course it is imported and has 32 percent volume alcohol and 41 percent volume alcohol.

    But notice the piece warns of some how irresponisble tens and college kids chugging it. I don't doubt that if it gets popular some of these types will buy a couple bottles. But they can not afford much and since it is all about getting drunk with them will stick with the lower content beer that is MUCH cheaper.

    Loved the Nanny State Beer by the way.

    WOW, they did it.

    A SHOT AND a BEER all in one!

    That is insane, it's cheaper to buy a 5th of Jack Daniels and a 6 pack.

    That's not beer, that's formerly beer.

    When they freeze it to remove excess water it become hard liquor.

    At 64 or 81 proof, calling it beer (even if it still foams) is just silly.

    Why would anyone be so stupid to spend that kind of money on liquor?

    Hard to say. I wonder how people spend $5.00 a pack to smoke. Even if you're addicted, it has to hit you financially at some point.

    Seen 7.50 per pack around here, I can't even imagine anyone paying 70 some dollars for 10 packs of paper and ground leaves worth about '3¢' a pack, the packaging is probably costs more than the product.

    But as an ex smoker, 3 packs a day minimum, I remember people asking me why I am paying 35¢ per pack and my reply was, when it gets to 75¢/pk I'll quit. Never did, until I was forced to, Been 11 years now. The increased sense of smell, and taste of foods, makes me want to kick myself in the butt for all the years I was addicted to this 'drug'. No really addicted smoker is going to listen to anyone's pleas to stop until something happens that makes the decision for them.

    Another in the lists of the 'crimes of the century', dramatic statement I know, was what the tobacco companies did to hide the real truth about their product while millions became hooked on it's effects. I think corporations are still playing the same game in other areas.

    Okay, my dramatics are over................

    The moment that cigarettes are $100 a pack, I plan on cutting down on my smoking.

    Those of you who have been truly addicted to nicotine understand, I'm sure.
