John Helmer — Oleg Deripaska Tries Forcing Russian Beer Out Of Leonid Mikhelson’s, Kirill Shamalov’s, And Gennady Timchenko’s Bottle Into Rural‘s Can

This is an interesting article about economic decision-making in Russia. Where the Duma and prime minister fail to agree the decision falls to the president. In the US, these issues are decided by factions in Congress that are influenced by lobbying. The US regards the Russian model as corrupt but sees nothing similar in the US model, which is supposedly free of political influence.

I dont think US consumers would welcome beer in plastic bottles....

The new craft brews are mostly in bottles (some cans but not many...) and of course on tap...
