In a previous post where we examined the nonsense behind the “don’t export our oil!” hysterics, I wanted to use beer as a related example. Ultimately, I didn’t.
However, thankfully Beer Advocate came to my rescue.

To those who don’t think that U.S. companies should be able to export their oil, a few questions:
- Do you think we should enact the same policies for beer?
- Would stopping the export of U.S. beer keep prices low?
- If not, why would it for oil?
Of course, the answers should be obvious.
