Beverage denial in the news

If you are an employee or retired employee of Molson's, your free beer is being phased out:
Molson retirees in the province of Newfoundland will see their monthly allotment of beer fall from six dozen a month to zero over the next five years.

Current workers will see their allotment drop from 72 dozen bottles a year to 52 dozen.
In related news, Venezuelans are being told that Democracy Zero and Coke Zero don't mix:
The Venezuelan government of U.S.-critic President Hugo Chavez on Wednesday ordered Coca-Cola Co (KO.N) to withdraw its Coke Zero beverage from the South American nation, citing unspecified dangers to health.
There is still an amber stream of hope on tap, however, thanks to Alabama:
Alabama has a new law allowing stronger beer to be sold in the state, which means previously banned specialty and imported beers can soon begin appearing in restaurants, bars and some retail stores.
