ALL BEER IS THE SAME? I try to keep my criticisms of beer coverage by the mainstream media civil, especially since at times I'm one of them. But an article posted yesterday on MSNBC, Will You Drink Beer In A Box?, is so completely riddled with error and ridiculousness that the gloves are off. Author James Dlugosch may know stocks and the world of finance, but when it comes to beer, he's an unmitigated idiot. =A0=A0=A0=A0=A0=A0
