When it comes to pairing beer with poultry, Joe Morette isn't too fussy. His turkeys will drink just about anything.

Morette, who is raising about 50 Thanksgiving turkeys this year, has been giving his birds beer since 1993, when he and his workers popped open a few cans after work on a hot July day. A turkey knocked one over and started drinking, he said, and they've been sipping the suds ever since.

Morette, who prefers serving the turkeys lager, insists the beer makes birds fatter, more flavorful and juicier.

"Oh, yeah, it's noticeable," he said. "It's not a strong, gamey flavor, it's a nice turkey flavor."

While California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA isn't the first university to hold a class on beer, it is the first to sell the beer made by the brewing class on campus. The increased interest in craft beer may be the reason behind growing popularity in college brewing courses. Cal Poly is only the beginning, Colorado State University also plans to start selling its microbrews made by students. 

Since the craft beer industry is growing, David Ryder, chief brewmaster for MillerCoors told CBS Los Angeles, “This could be a natural progression for college programs."

Palcohol allows you to take your favorite drink and sprinkle it on whatever you like, for example rum powdered cookies. But, it's not all delicious ideas and treats as people, especially parents worried about kids getting ahold of the substance, are raising concern over the powdered adult beverage. Colorado has already banned sale of Palcohol. For the rest of the US, it should be available by summer time.

Keeping the sordid reputation of Chicago politicians alive and not-so-well, Alderman Deborah Graham reportedly gave convicted drug dealer Frederick "Juicy" Sims great assistance in getting a huge monetary grant to open a liquor store in Chicago, according to Opposing Views on Tuesday, as well as an original report by the Chicago Tribune.

Sims, who previously gave Alderman Graham a $2,000 donation for her political campaign, received a six-figure public grant to open his liquor store. The grant involved a $105,000 tax increment in financing, which is beyond the fact that a ban on liquor businesses had to be lifted for Sims to open shop.

In their study, researchers looked at elderly men with a genetic variation that produces an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of alcohol that is up to 80 times less competent at doing the task.
It was associated with reduced alcohol use, "but it had no association with depression whatsoever," Prof Almeida said.
"The conclusion is that alcohol use neither causes nor prevents depression in older men.
"Our results also debunk the view that mild to moderate alcohol consumption may reduce the risk of depression."
