The staff of NewsCut acknowledges liking a beer as much as the next blogger, but it’s also noticed that more and more economic development in the Twin Cities recently involves brewing more of it. And why not? The immigrants who settled here were master brewers from the old country, the community center in the upper Midwest’s small towns has always been the bar on the corner, and we like to drink. We’re near the top of the heap when it comes to binge drinking in America.
So we took special delight at this new video on what beer commercials would be like if they had to be honest.
