The mystery of who actually owns the company now is confusing. I didn't bother trying to delve into that too much, but it's not exactly a small craft brewery anymore.

According to the CDC,
in 2013, 10,076 people were killed in traffic accidents due to one cause. That’s about a third of all traffic-related deaths in the U.S.

It was alcohol.

10,076 people.

I drink out more than home. Usually a beer or two with a meal. Then again, I usually go to places partially for the extensive beer menus.

I'm a cheap drinker. I rarely buy out because it's more expensive than buying and drinking at home.

Granted, with the amount I drink, Watkins covers my monthly budget for it in like one meal.

I don't go out to bars nearly as much as I used to, and I probably drink a bit less these days. Drinking microbew at a bar gets expensive fast, as they usually aren't part of happy hour specials or other specials.

Theres a lot of things MA does well - like starting the Revolutionary War and being full of disgruntled miscreants - but modern alcohol laws are not some of those things.
