Beeronomics: Cereal Boxes and the Honest Pint

Brewers are not the only ones facing higher ingredient prices these days - cereal manufacturers are too. So what to do? Well, you can raise prices or you can shrink the box and hope that consumers won't notice. Cereal manufacturers seem to be successfully doing the latter. So will brewers be tempted to start shrinking servings of beer at their pubs? Would you know if they did? Maybe it is time to get on board with the honest pint.

By the way, anyone know any good brew pubs in New Orleans?

Get Turbo Dog where you can find it. Mmmmm, tasty!

Dang, I had the AndyGator. Not so mmmmm, tasty. I noticed the Turbodog Tap but failed to remember it when I ordered off the menu which did not list it. I was relying on the server, who clearly had absolutely no knowledge of beer. Could not even tell me if AndyGator was an ale or a lager. It was a lager and a decidedly average one. Not bad, but not great. Will try a turbodog tomorrow.
