Reaching for the High Life in Chicago

I'm committed to Huber beers and a strong Rhinelander guy; so I won't put a dent into Millers bottom line with the boycott Michelle Malkins calling for here.

And some clips from the Trib story that set Malkin off.
Marchers had to duck into fast-food restaurants for water when they first took to Chicago's streets in support of illegal immigrants five months ago. At the next two marches, family-owned grocery stores offered free bottled water from trucks emblazoned with their names.

This time, as demonstrators march from Chinatown to House Speaker Dennis Hastert's (R-Ill.) Batavia office this weekend, they will have Miller Brewing Co., as a sponsor. The brewer has paid more than $30,000 for a planning convention, materials and newspaper ads publicizing the event.

Mathew Romero, the company's local market development manager, said Miller felt it was important to speak out against Sensenbrenner's legislation, though his campaign was one of many the company supported.

Romero noted that company founder Frederick Miller was a German immigrant and many current executives are foreign nationals. Miller is now part of London-based SABMiller.
I hope these folks show some appreciation while demonstrating of the High Life we -legals and illegals alike- enjoy in Chicago. Prost.
