Hott Link: RIP Zima

zima-clearmalt-bottle.jpg It’s been a rough week for drunk eaters. First we lost the Nacho Queen, now comes   word  that Zima, the clear, bubbly “malternative” beverage that launched a thousand imitators and a million drunk teenagers, will be no more:

The joint venture between SABMiller’s U.S. unit and Molson Coors Brewing Co. told distributors in a letter Monday that production of the malt liquor beverage was discontinued as of Oct. 10…

If you’re feeling really desperate, now is the time to stock up…

Distributors can get remaining Zima inventories most likely through December.

After that, Zima will be retired to heaven, to mix blissfully with Crystal Pepsi.
