Another effect of (hic) climate change?

Are longer, colder, snowier winters encouraging us to adopt Nordic drinking habits?

The New York Governor's office reports that the number of breweries, wineries and cideries
in the state has doubled over the past three years--growing from 205 to 410.

The number of microbreweries has increased from 40 in 2011 to 104 this year.
The state also has 57 new farm breweries and nearly 100 new farm wineries.

Climate change's role?  

It makes sense. You may not have power or a backup generator, but you can stock up on schnapps to help get you through the dark and frigid nights.

And, if alcohol consumption follows climate change, imagine what it will do to birth rates.
