No.

We live in a damned fascist world.

This will continue to be true until I can visit the website of a brewery without having to enter "my" birthdate.

Seriously. Retarded.

I've noticed a few lately that simply ask whether you are of legal drinking age. Still annoying and useless, but much easier to deal with.

I think they may be flattering themselves in thinking that some booze-seeking sixteen-year-old is going to respect their exhortations enough to enter his real birthdate, much less go to a brewery's site in the first place. That's not how these things work. It's more likely that they'd hang around some computer terminal at a library or internet cafe, waiting for an adult to come along, and then sullenly approach them and ask them if hey man would you go to this brewery website for me, I'll totally pay you back

Now that you mention it, Freiheit, Victory's "are you 21?" screen is a real head-scratcher.

http://www.victorybeer.com/

First, if you just go to any other page on the site, you skip it anyway. Second, I never know what to answer. As phrased, the statement appears to be false - there must be at least one person under 21 who can enjoy a Victory brew, right? But then, Victory beers ARE rather complex. Maybe kids really CAN'T enjoy them. I know that I barely drank beer at all before I was 21.

It's such a dilemma.

Blame the lawyers. And the fundies. And Carrie Nation.
