Either way you look at it — adding booze to root beer or adding root beer to booze — it’s a combination that makes sense: Root beer is delicious, people like drinking alcoholic beverages, so why not have a hard root beer? One craft brewery has already netted itself a national deal with major partners in the brewing industry after developing a boozy root beer that’s become quite popular.
Companies love it when celebrities sign on to endorse their products, but you better believe those famous faces want to protect their paycheck when push comes to shove. That’s why Snoop Dogg is taking Pabst Brewing Company to court over the sale of the beer company’s Colt 45 line, claiming he’s owed a portion of the proceeds from that sale.
We can’t imagine how bereft one must feel after having a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon forcefully stolen at forkpoint. But we do know what it’s like to get free beer, so we’re pretty happy that a Pabst distributor tried to right the wrong done to one theft victim by giving her free cases of PBR.
