Miller-Coors Back on the Weekend Shopping List

Whew... that was a close one. One more day and the state of Minnesota would have been scrambling to come up with a substitute beer for the weekend. That would have been a disaster.

My guess is Mark Dayton is pretty good at drinking beer... alongside Billy Currington.

The word on the streets is that the Minnesota government has reached an agreement as to how to close our $5 billion budget shortfall. Not only is that good news for the workers laid off, but its also good news for those of us who like to enjoy a Coors six pack on the weekends to wind down. "Miller Time" was in serious jeopardy in the Land of 10,000 Lakes because state officials claimed Miller-Coors failed to properly renew its licensing before the government shut down on July 1st.

Now, what has been reported is that Miller-Coors actually did send their paperwork in on time, but that they 'overpaid' their licensing fees. Being the 'Minnesota-Nice' that we are, we rejected their paperwork... Gee. You would think we were in a budget surplus the way we turned our noses up at the extra fee payment. Next time, Minnesota, take the money and run so we can avoid any budget shortfalls and beer-distribution snafus.

Miller CoorsAfter all, Minnesota is one of the top five markets in the US for Miller-Coors.
