If its decision to start selling groceries wasn't enough of a sign that Walgreens is trying to shake up its image and reach a new audience, now comes news that the drugstore chain has begun selling its own private-label beer.
According to the Chicago Tribune, Walgreens has been rolling out the beer, called Big Flats 1901, in more than 4,600 of its 7,655 U.S. locations.
Since private-label booze is rarely purchased because of superior taste, Walgreens is selling the suds cheap, around $3 for a six-pack and around $11.50 for a case of 24 cans.
'In this tough economy, consumers are looking for value and ways to make their money go (further),' a Walgreens rep told the Tribune. 'Big Flats 1901 offers our customers a premium lager at a great price.'
In case you're curious, Big Flats 1901 (which won't win any awards for its name) is made by Winery Exchange, which also provides private-label adult beverages for Costco Wholesale and Trader Joe's.

BUCHAREST, Romania — Romania has changed its labor laws to officially recognize witchcraft as a profession, prompting one self-described witch to threaten retaliation.
The move, which went into effect Saturday, is part of the government's drive to crack down on widespread tax evasion in a country that is in recession.
