I thought that might be it.. It's just that I don't get why they allow wine in that case. They're both alchol after all. Odd to descriminate if you ask me :)

Adwords is couth. Only thing going for beer is that it is wet.

They also do not allow tobacco or weapons (ie. firearms) to be advertised.

That is bogus. Just another example of discrimination against beer drinkers by the wine sipping elite.

No problem with oxycontin either, too bad, just buried a very nice young man a few weeks ago.
They call them oxy coffins for a reason.
Do no evil..socially responsible..big joke.

A "Beer of the Month Club" membership from an online beer website was an xmas gift to me this year, and not a bad one in my opinion! ; )
- now if only that first shipment would arrive...

|I could understand if it was no alcohol at all, but why only beer? I might be missing something, so if anyone knows... |
Mail-order beer sales are only legal in about 1/3 of the United States. That makes advertising beer online much less profitable than advertising wine. Google may have decided it's not worth the aggravation of getting involved in a market sector where 2/3 of the clickthroughs are "wasted".
That said, it's their site. They get to control what's on it. Anybody complaining to the contrary is just a whiner.

And yet I live in a state where I can't have beer or wine shipped to me...:(
Wine is considered an investment and commodity by a lot of people (as evidenced by places that I can have my wine shipped to for storage for many years until I can pick it up or wish to sell it to a 3rd party).
As it is an investment/trade good as well, many sites break the no tobacco/firearms/booze self regulating rules for wines and certain liquors (such as scotch).

It might have been pulled since. The one I saw led to a link that led to a link. The vodka example still leads to real alcohol.
