Today we published Katharine Shilcutt's "United States of Beer," and of course, expected beer nerds the country over to go apeshit. We closed our eyes and landed our arrow on a typical comment from one of them:
Congratulations. This is the stupidest thing I've seen all day. MGD 64? WTH? I've lived in Florida my entire life and I didn't even know there was such a beer until about 2 minutes ago. No, not Corona, not Red Stripe, not freakin' Hurricane Reef, Landshark, or even Bud Lite. MGD. Have you ever been within 500 miles of this state?

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism.
