Drinking for Liberty

While we’re sitting around drinking beer and bitching about the State of the Union Address, one Libertarian is actually drinking with free market purpose.

Austin News 8 provides this detail in text format:

Some Austin residents are working to create the state’s first co-op beer pub in the European sense of the word. The Black Star Pub is the brainchild of Steven Wyarak, who had lived in Belgium and liked the quality of beer and pub atmosphere there.

“We’re starting up a community-owned bar here in town. I wanted to do something cooperative, something that would involve the community [and see] what options are out there, what can we do?” Wyarak said.

When you click the link to watch the video, you’ll see Michael Badnarik’s assistant Jon Airheart pouring a beer. You’ll see him again in the news clip, too. You’ll also find out just why it is a neat free-market solution.

Why cry in your beer when you can have fun and make money off the process?

I like tasteful cigars, private property, American whiskey, fast cars, hot women, pre-bailout Jeeps, fine dining, worthwhile literature, low taxes, original music, personal privacy and self-defense rights -- but not necessarily in this order.

  1. It would have been fun, but I woke up with a stomach virus on sunday that left me rather dehydrated. I felt and ate pretty normal on monday so I tested the waters with a few drinks last night and I deeply regretted it. Note: apparently consuming a diuretic while recovering from even mild dehydration is a very bad idea. Wonder how long it will take to get back to normal. Guess I’ll find out on sunday…
