The straight from the shoulder answer is simply this. All beers are about 87% water. And if s plain to see--THE BETTER THE WATER, THE BETTER THE BEER!

That's the big difference--a difference in taste, a difference in flavor, a difference in the way you'll smack your lips and say. "Give me Old Export every time". It's got Mountain Water, and Mountain Water makes the difference. BEER THE C U M B E R L A N D I R I W I N C CO.; C U M B I R I A N D , MO.
