Heresy: Tennessee Has the Nation's Highest Beer Tax

From the Pretty Soon We're Gonna Be a Bunch of School Marms Really Into Tennis File:

First Nashville wants to stop the sale of single beers, putting an end to the time-honored tradition of buying a pack of cigs, a lottery ticket, and a 40-ounce after work. An elitist yuppie attack on working people everywhere? Word.

Now comes more damaging news: Tennessee has the nation's highest beer tax!

At $33.25 a barrel, we're No. 1 in the country for gouging brewski drinkers, finally surpassing Alaska for the top spot. Is it any coincidence that both states are run by crazy people? We think not.

What's next? A special tax on fried pickles and pork rinds? Keep it up, and we'll soon be known as the Inland San Francisco.
