We know that beer has many, many magical properties besides making you funnier, helping you sing better, and turning ugly chicks hot. You can also use beer to put out fires, marinate meats, lower blood pressure, and polish cookware.
Well that unsung hero of the working class man is saving the US economy. Obama can't do it. Congress certainly can't do it. Where Washington say we can't, beer says "yes we can!"
According to Thrillist, beer is creating millions of jobs:
...not only does the American beer market directly and indirectly employ around 2,000,000 people, but one job in a brewery or wholesaler supports 45 jobs outside of it.
And "the brewing industry generates around $246 billion for the US economy and earns $79 billion for the folks working within it".
It's Trickle Down Beer-o-nomics!
