Beer takes a hit from buff guv

On one of my first nights back here in the capital city, I introduced some friends to Simon's - a local watering hole. While there, a camera crew from a local news station came in to get patrons' takes on "Governator Beer," produced by an Oregon brewery. So there I am, on camera, commenting on the beer. I said something to the effect of "It's okay, but I'd say it has a 3 year shelf-life, max." I felt quite clever.

Well, it turns out that the gov doesn't take kindly to his image being so appropriated - he's demanding they cease using his image on the bottle.

Fortunately, I already have my bottle (CostPlus). I'm waiting for the Davis beer - but still nothing . . .
