Bin Laden beer banned

Romanian drinkers say it was 'better, cheaper'

July 1, 2002 - The sale of Bin Laden beer in the Romanian town of Mizil has been banned because local officials found it in bad taste.


Local residents aren't happy, claiming they are proud of the beer that they think is better than market rivals -- and is also cheaper.

The beer produced at a local brewery was sold only in the town's pubs and bars.

"I know it was illegal but it was ours," one drinker told the Romanian National newspaper. "And it was very good and cheaper than any others. We used to be proud we were the only ones to drink this stuff."
