Beer Is Recession-Proof

Just a bit of positive economic news to get the edge off of the imminent recession and high price of gas: this article that states for the record, just in case you were wondering, that beer is indeed recession-proof.

One brewer interviewed for the piece said:

"During good times and during bad times, people want to drink their beer..."

Now if we could just find a way to combine beer with comic books...


  1. Unfortunately, there's a hops shortage, too.

  2. There once was a mutual fund centered around sin, using the logic that people would always buy tobacco, alcohol, movies, no matter what the economy.
    the nice thing about beer is that you can save money and brew your own.

  3. Don't forget cigarettes - no matter how broke you are, you always find the cash for a fix.

  4. Beer! Puagh! I hate beer, is indigest. But Homer is obssesed with beer. I prefer when he think in donuts. Mmmmmm...

    Now Ocassional Superheroine in the blue sky?
