An Official Treasure

Beer itself can significantly alter the male
androgen levels.  German beer makers noticed
long ago that the young women who picked
hops in the fields commonly experienced early
menstrual periods.  Eventually, researchers
discovered the reason - hops is perhaps one of
the most powerfully estrogenic plants on
Earth. Just 100 grams of hops (about 3.5
ounces) contains anywhere from thirty thousand
to three hundred thousand IUs of estrogen,
depending on the type of hops.  Most of it is the
very potent estrogen estradiol.  Estradiol,
as it is taken into the male body, causes a direct
lowering of testosterone levels in the testes and
an increase in SHBG levels, which then binds up
even more free testosterone in the bloodstream

From factory workers to farm hands, from brewers to
bartenders, beer puts America to work. The supply chain
supports more than 350,000 jobs, paying out $19.8 billion in
wages. The industry also generates nearly $49 billion in
federal, state and local tax revenue – more than its fair share.

Wheat Ridge, C.o is the US' most dangerous curve for beer
trucks. In the past year four trucks hauling beer have
toppled while coursing it's sharp downhill  bend .  In the
most recent crash a tractor trailer carrying 44,000 pounds
of Coors beer toppled flat on one side without spilling its
contents.  Local citizens "removed" most of the cans.
