Hope For a Market Crash
The beer exchange concept is one of the hottest in the
country at craft beer bars.  It means that the prices of what is
on tap can (and usually does) fluctuate every 15 minutes
based on demand – the more customers drink of a certain
beer, the more prices increase, as that's how the law of
supply and demand works.

Conversely, the cost for beers of which customers aren't
drinking as much will drop. In general the prices will  only
fluctuate a quarter or two, but the market will crash
occasionally, leaving all beers at 25 cents over cost.
You don't say.....

"Beer - Because one doesn't solve the world's problems over white wine."
Shocking
Drinking beer and sitting in the pub has been
scientifically proven to make the British public feel good.

It turns out that a key ingredient used to brew beer
stimulates dopamine production in the brain, a Malted barley
- used to brew most beers - is rich in hordenine, which
activates a desire to consume food and drink out of
pleasure, rather than hunger.Subsequently, this triggers
dopamine receptors in the brain which make us feel happy.

Researchers at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in
Bavaria looked at 13,000 food components in order to get
their results.  That in turn gave scientific credence to the
results of a recent  poll of 2,000 Britons that found that they
were also happiest when at the pub.
Mr. Brewski is shocked.
