(Newser) – Up to 800 workers at the Carlsberg brewery in Denmark struck for a second day today after management decided they could drink beer only at lunch time. Apparently, drinking three beers—other than those consumed at lunch—is a longstanding tradition at the brewery, and not one employees are willing to give up lightly. “Because of that, the warehouse staff went on strike yesterday, with other staff striking in sympathy,” a Carlsberg representative tells the Irish Times.
