Beer Stock Exchange 

The Black Hills Beer Beverage Garden, a division of Quality Brands, will be set up as a beer stock exchange. The German word Bierbörse translates to beer stock exchange and Main Street Square is equipped with software to run a stock exchange. In the stock exchange, the price of beer will vary from $2 to $8, and price is dependent on demand. For example, if Crow Peak Pile O’ Dirt Porter is very popular, the price will rise. If no one is drinking Sam Adams Octoberfest, the price will plummet and possibly crash. When a beer’s value is low, it will cost a minimum of $2. If it is high in demand, it may cost up to $8.
