In the corner shop just now, I was informed by the chap behind the counter that not only was there a shortage of tobacco, but Stella was being rationed - they were only allowed to order two cases. Combine this with Space Raiders going up to 15p and the utter collapse of this country seems imminent.

The people who own Stella made a 48 BILLION dollar bid on Budweiser here in the states, that might have something to do with it.

Wouldn't that mean they needed to sell more Stella not less?

I would think. Unless they cut production to save some money for the offer, but that would seem counterproductive.

Either way, if they own a producer/distributor over here it might bring better beer closer to me.

Went into our local Co-op store this morning. Stella packs of 12 bottles 2 for the price of 1.

There you go - all the Stella being sent down to the West Country. Perhaps there was a run on it last week .....
