Venezuelan President Orders Brewery to Open Back Up or Owners Risk Being Put in Jail
Finally, a president that cares about the same things I do.
Apparently in Venezuela, one company supplies 80 percent of the beer drank in the country. Sadly for beer drinkers of Venezuela, the company is currently shut down. Empresas Polar shut down its brewery back in April. They say government mismanagement is preventing them from shipping in barley, which is a key ingredient in beer.
President Nicolas Maduro has now threatened to take over idle factories, saying that business owners who 'sabotage the country' by halting production, risk being 'put in handcuffs.' The president of the country and the company are at odds back and forth. I will admit, it's nice for the president to be looking out for the beer drinkers.
