The Pub / Re: West Sixth vs Magic Hat

Did a little research on the person who made the comment. Seems like he has a beer blog and one of his buddies works (or worked) at Magic Hat based on his comments.

No matter what you gotta admit this is funny:

Hold on a second, let's pick apart carefully where you guys are seeing West Sixth lied about anything.

They said:
"In fact, we tried to reach out to them individually to see if there was any way to resolve the amicably, but to no surprise, no one ever called us back."

I've seen a bunch of legal documents from some Kentucky Law firm and a lawsuit from a TN law firm, but nada from anyone in Vermont or New York. So I'm having a hard time finding the lie.

I'd also like to see the article from 2 years ago concerning the logo. I though the firm started doing business in April 2012 so I'm scratching my head about an article showing similarity from 2011??? Clue me in.

Maybe posting a side by side of the logos with the West Sixth Brewing logo inverted will help.

Perhaps someone can explain how they look similar other than the blob at the bottom of the 9 and top of the 6? The 6 is closed and has different line weights than the 9 which is not closed. The dingbat on the 9 is a dingbat and the 6 is a star and the colors are different. I just don't see how the two can be confused. Good on West Sixth for not caving to the pressure.

Doesn't look anything like it to me. Line weight is different. 9 doesn't connect the loop, I would never mistake the two.

Anyway, I do love me some internet in case anyone wants to have some email fun!

Mod Edit - Do a search you can find the contact info for the companies out there... otherwise - zoink.

It's actually a rebate coupon for a produce purchase.

At one time I was a fanboy of the Blue Moon Pale Moon. Then they started calling it Blue Moon Belgian-Style Pale Ale and it changed.

Recently I noticed they have renamed it again and are calling it Rounder.

The alcohol has gone up 0.2%, but otherwise looks like the BSPA to me.

My grandmother always used a crock(may have been a Red Wing) with a plate and a rock. $125 sounds expensive to me.

The Pub / Re: NTSB Recommends 0.05% BAC Limit
« on: May 15, 2013, 12:22:26 AM »
Penalties in the US do little IMO to deter crime. You see the sign driving down the road which says, "Penalties Increased Ahead" or "Fines Doubled In Work Zones". Sometimes it even tells you how much. Do you slow down because of a penalty or because you don't want to kill someone? Do you slow down at all? (Rhetorical question, but as I drive 40K miles per year I do feel qualified to answer few slow down at all.)

The Pub / Re: NTSB Recommends 0.05% BAC Limit
« on: May 15, 2013, 12:02:59 AM »
I did a little quick research. When the law dropped from 0.10 to 0.08 a study (insert eye roll emoticon) found the drop in drivers with 0.10 or greater in fatal crashes to decrease by 6%. That was right after the laws changed in some states.

I found a neat 1999 analysis from CT (more eye roll emoticons).
49% of fatalities in motor vehicles has zero alcohol in their system. So sober drivers.
3% were in the 0.01 to 0.04 range
5% in the 0.05 to 0.10 range

So 57% of all traffic fatalities involved legal amounts of alcohol to zero alcohol

If you took out the sober drivers, 54% of those with any alcohol had a BAC more than 0.16
http://www.cga.ct.gov/ps99/rpt/olr/htm/99-r-0154.htm

Fast forward to 2010 and the NTSB found 75% of fatal crashes involving drunk drivers had BAC more than twice the legal limit.
http://www.drugfree.org/join-together/alcohol/most-drunk-drivers-causing-fatal-crashes-have-almost-twice-legal-blood-alcohol-limit-2

You simply are not going to stop those drivers with a change to the BAC.

Nebraska has an interesting fact sheet. 18% of alcohol impaired drivers are under 21. So lemme get this straight, we have a law which states zero alcohol until 21 (in most states) and a certain BAC. Those laws are being broken so changing a limit and ultimately changing a law is going to stop the law from being broken? That's the kind of thinking that will get you elected!
