Forgive them Lord, they know not what they do.
In the world of the New York Yankees, the earth revolves around them, NY is the team's land and everything else is foreign territory.
All of which goes to explain why beer drinkers at the new Yankee Stadium have been gouged an extra couple bucks for an imported beer that doesn't quite merit the term.
Generally, an imported beer in America is considered any drink that is created OUTSIDE the borders of the United States. Goose Island, an IPA brewed in Chicago would nominally be considered a DOMESTIC. Not to the Yankees though! To them, Chicago might as well be Mars.
After all, if it's imported they can charge a couple more dollars for it and there is nothing more important to the Yankees than the all mighty dollar.
Beck's, which is also on the list of "imported" beers is originally from Germany but is now brewed in the US too... But hey, 2 out of 4 ain't bad, if the beer stand were a hitter it'd be the best one in baseball!
