It takes time to start a movement and especially one that is not humourless. So it is with some relief we have such an early example of the sort of behavior that I would think all beer bloggers can agree is way out of line:
...authorities said that didn't stop the 49-year-old man from drunkenly driving up to a gas station for more beer — on his yellow riding lawnmower. Cretton was charged with felony aggravated driving under the influence after neighbors reported he was weaving in and out of traffic on his lawnmower Friday night. When deputies tried to stop him, authorities said Cretton drove the mower into his home's front yard, his 12-pack of Milwaukee's Best spilling onto the ground along the way.
Note one thing. Could the guy give up the stereotype and have a few craft beers on his lap as he drives his lawnmover in and out of traffic? No. No, he couldn't. He needed Milwaukee's Best because he is likely not the sort that could have anything to do with craft beer. Remember - the first principle of Beer Bloggers Against Drunk Driving is, of course, craft beer has no place in drunk driving. In their purest forms they are mutually exclusive forces. I'd explain the physics behind that but need a chalk board to do it properly.
But the wonderfully named Mr. Cretton has also illustrated the second principle: BBADD supports no alternative forms of driving that puts the drinker behind the wheel. A lawnmower with Milwaukee's Best today leads to a old guy tricycle hauling a tapped keg in the big shopping carrier basket out back. Research is being done now on the whole horse and cart question.
