I'd say it was a great gift! I wish I would have started brewing when I was that age. I would have one hell of a recipe book by now!

Man, I wish I had heard about this before coming to college this semester... Homework would go sooo much better.

They should get the noble prize for that idea. Except, a better gift would have been free kegs.

I could understand MADD or some other loud mouthed group biatching about this one, but the American Medical Association? What are the medical hazards of underage drinking? How does being 21 instead of 18 change any medical hazards associated with the consumption of alcohol? Seriously, I think is the drinking age were 18 when I started college, I wouldn't have failed out the first time. I was much more conservative with my boozing when it was not abetted by the fun of breaking the law. Of course if it is legalized, what will youthful rebels start doing in it's place? Bombing schools?

as long as they are of legal age, i have no problem. personally i think we should move to a system like germany's- beer, wine, champagne at 16 and all other liquor at18. There the kids arent as obsessed with getting alchohol as they are here, because they have grown up up with it all around them, so its no big deal.

of course this would never work in america because we are all stupid. (thats really what the rest of the world thinks of us) everyday i see kids my age who have severe alchohol addictions, proboly because it was so taboo. maybe if we had a system like germany's college kids wouldnt be doing stupid things like drinking themselves to death.

18 is fine for liquor, 16 might be pushing it.
