Official Beer of the Olympics

Olympic athletes go for the gold,
Heineken goes for the green.
You won't find Heineken at the Umpqua Brew Fest in October, but you can't help but find it at the 2012 Summer Olympics, currently being contested in London, England.

Much to the chagrin of English ale partisans, Heineken, a Dutch lager, was $elected as the official beer of the Games of the XXX Olympiad.

No English beers are available at the Olympics, but a pint of Heineken can be purchased for about $11.
