Living the High Life No More

If you live in Minnesota and are a fan of Miller Lite or other Miller products, stop reading now and get to the store now to stock up. Seriously, go NOW. You can read about why when you come back home.

The MillerCoors brewing company will soon be forced to pull 39 brands of beers from every restaurant, bar and liquor store in the state of Minnesota.

It's all because the company wasn't able to renew their brand label registration far enough in advance before the state's government shut down.

"What that means is they're not able to either distribute or sell their product in this state," said Doug Neville, spokesperson for the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.

When Andrew Oliver of Minneapolis heard the news, he headed over to Surdyk's Liquor to stock up on Miller Lite, his wife's favorite beer.

"We just had a kid, so she's looking forward to Miller Lite."
No longer found in Minnesota flavor.
It's well-documented that Miller Lite is my go-to when relaxing on a budget. And since I'll be in Minneapolis (and likely still broke as a joke) in October, I'm not too happy to be hearing this news. Drinking Bud Light makes me feel kind of like a traitor. I'm guessing it's something similar to how a Dale Jr. fan feels when forced to get behind the wheel of a Ford. But Coors Lite is basically pond water in a can, so...

Maybe I can convince a manager to buy me something from the adults' menu.
