There's no money in booze if nobody drinks it. As above, Bud Lite and Budweiser make up more than a quarter of all beer sales in the US.

From my friend who ran the beer bar not too far away, she said the expense and hassle of getting a liquor license was simply not worth it, as she could barely keep enough beer stocked for the weekends. Her liquor bottles would most likely have gotten dusty.
Its not that way up here. Most small bars out in the country sells lots of booze. They are not making Old Fashioneds or Manhattans, but lots of shots and simple whisky and cokes.

Like I said up here, there are no beer bars. So the got of a license isn't so much the issue. Maybe since there are more places that sell booze up here, people drink it. But I really supsect you friend is simply wrong.

But when I was in Memphis, and Beele Street say lots of plastic cops on the street. Granted those were tourists.

I am surprised you haven't brought up drive through liquor stores. We have them up here, but very rare. Though I hear they are just the Baptist can alcohol without being seen. Baptist might explain beer consumption. Seems some people will convince themselves they are not really drinking if its beer.

...and if you noticed how I spelt "Bier", it will give you some hint towards my preference of origin.
Bud and old mil to name a few, is piss, NOT Bier.

Back to this thread...
The 3 times I've hit the deck, not once did I land on my head and I definitely NEVER went face down. (I must know how to crash!?) That said, I like my 3/4 with full face shield (Bell Mag8) better than any of my F.F. Helmets due to its being quieter and less prone to fogging in bad weather.
I predominately wear a helmet for protection from flying obstacles like large birds and thrown up rocks.

Didn't read all 48 pages, but wanted to make a correction on the Wikpedia stats as to open container laws, in particular; Virginia. Virginia has some of the toughest DUI laws in the States, and yes it is very illegal to have an open container in a moving vehicle, passengers or otherwise. In fact, if you have ANY alcohol in your blood, and driving, even below the legal DUI limit, you are going to jail. It's termed 'impaired driving'. Just wanted to clarify

Life's too short to drink cheap beer!

As RedRam said, Va has an open container law.

Best use I've ever seen for Bud Light:

Few things more tedious than a beer snob. Wine snob maybe, but it's close.

I hate budlight, but I am no beersnob. PBR, and Rainier are my favorite cheap beers. Mainly because they, unlike BL, have something called "alcohol" in them. This "alcohol" could be the source of something else called "flavor". Granted many peoples taste buds can't handle the distinguished tastes of PBR or Rainier, but that's their bad, not mine.

Parking lot time will help him ride scary twisty roads?
That really doesn't make sense.

A parking lot cone course can be a very satisfactory approximation of a twisty road; without distractions or dynamic hazards from other traffic, and with minimal risk of hitting a tree/boulder/car if you eat it.

Nah, cones in a parking lot can't help you learn control at all...
