There's a beer shortage in Edmonton. I'm not kidding. So please, do whatever you can to help our neighbors to the North in their time of need. Send whatever ectra beer you have to Rexall Place, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Oh, but they don't really like Budweiser, so only if you have Labatt's or Molson or something. Hopefully, this national nightmare will soon be over.
