Hey, Pod Skalkou doesn't have it worse than anybody else in the Check prohibition zone now. Sales of all beverages over 20%abv have been banned nationwide.

Well, there's always beer.

There's always HG.

Hope they righted your root canal.

I would like to highlight an exceedingly fine but now banned product.

While the ban will be temporary, the damage to fine distillers may be lasting.

Yep, someone sells poison labeled as booze so ban the legitimate producers. Then all that will be left is….

HG'ers don't kill. To suggest a home distiller made a product that was lethal is wrong.
The factories that make wood alcohol and other solvents supply a purpose and ask you to not drink it.
A friend of mine works in an ethanol plant, to render the pure spirit undrinkable, one gallon of gasoline is added to several thousand gallons of ethanol, this product cannot be made drinkable and is called "denatured" alcohol.

Good to learn that. Shame some greedy jerk will cost good folks some serious $$ in lost sales.

This could certainly get painful for legitimate distillers and liquorists who have already done everything necessary to comply with federal licensing and oversight regulations. That compliance now means nothing. Liquor stores and cocktail bars are shit-out-of-luck until further notice. How long will the prohibition last? Seems to have been instituted without saying what needs to be accomplished in order to lift it.

I bet the screws are going to be tightened on the regulations that the legitimate manufacturers have already had to work under. It may even finally come down on the thuj0ne hypers and their supposedly mega-dosed assbinths sold in defiance of EU regulations. Strict thuj0ne testing in the Czech Republic could be one outcome.

This is not to say that I think more regulation of the industry is a good thing. I don't think it's even a necessary outcome. Just as I think the complete lock-down on alcohol is an unnecessary over-reaction. The politicians want to be seen doing something even when they don't understand the problem, let alone a rational way of dealing with it.

The quirky side of the prohibition means that anyone now imbibing hard alcohol can truthfully brag about drinking pre-ban.

Sad to say I got two bottles of pre-ban now. I hope Martin can do something. Effectively he has been legislated out of business. Pure, 100%, bureaucratic caca.

Just like lawmakers to make more laws because criminals were breaking those existing.
Crush the law abiding to accomplish… nothing.
Well except perhaps make somebody feel good.
Because we all know, no matter what the new regulations might be, those criminals will be surely obey them…

Criminals always obey the law, don't they?

So there are these two Czechs watching their favorite soccer team on TV. Their team is already losing 2-0 when the opposition scores a third goal.

"Oh, man, they suck. This is terrible. I don't want to see this any more."

"You're right. Fucking awful. Let's drink another shot."
