Russia hits a new low

As though that whole "Communism" thing wasn't a big enough blow to the people of Eastern Europe, now beer is no longer considered food. While chock full of calories and hops and stuff, beers alcohol content has overtaken its nutritional content.

Rising beer sales and falling Vodka sales pushed the move by the Russian President. Despite a recent (ministry enacted) 200% tax hike, beer's popularity has been on the rise.  Effective in 2013, beer as nutrition is a thing of the past.

So raise a frosty mug to our Russian comrades. Na zdorovie! So sorry for your loss. I wish they made a Hallmark card for this.
