It depends entirely on where you live.

Normally, you need a license to import alcohol and another to sell it. Then you need to be registered to pay Import Duty and also for tax collection to sell it.

Then you need brewers who will sell it cheap enough to you to buy it in bulk at a good price so you can make a profit.

This will give you more guidelines

That was only because you/he didn't handle it properly. When you picked it up to pour it, you disturbed the sediment. It is still fine to drink. The 'dirt' (bottle sediment) shows it is a good port. The oldest fortified wine I decanted was 1900 Madeira in year 2000, the oldest crusted port was a 1982, decanted in 2013 on my 60th birthday.

You need to let the port stand for a week or two, carry it carefully, remove the cork carefully with the bottle upright and then pour it into a glass jug or preferably a decanter whilst looking through the neck with a light behind it. As soon as you see the sediment arrive at the neck you slide over to another jug with a coffee filter in it and empty the bottle. Rinse the bottle thoroughly with hot water and then return the clear port back to the bottle. Use the cloudy port below the filter in cooking.

If you haven't stored it on its side, it will be flat by now! Otherwise, about 2 years.

The one you like the best. Buy variety paks to check out different varieties.

If you have a health problem, there may be teas which can provide some help or relief.

Bulk Barn, health food stores etc are good places to start.

According to beer manufacturers, yes. This is especially true for wheat beers. Most wheat beer glasses are specifically designed to tall to help trap yeast sediment at the bottom of the glass so that it does not blend with the rest of the beer while you are drinking it.

The best before date on bottled water

Water seems like a commodity that can't go bad, so what is up with the best before dates that companies are printing on their labels? Do they really mean anything?

After some research I have found that there is no rule from the FDA that water bottle companies are required to print a best before date. What these dates indicate is that the best quality of the water will be before this date. You will find that when you put water in a bottle after a few days or a while the water will start to taste a little different.

Some times if the water tastes different after the best before date this is an indicator of the chemicals from the plastic leaching into the water. This causes some health concerns, but the chemicals don't really need a lot of time to leach into the water. You will notice that nothing grows in a sealed water bottle but within 2 weeks of opening it you should drink it or toss it because it can start to grow bacteria or mold.

Dr Pepper is owned by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc. Coca Cola, Inc. has nothing to do with the manufacture of Dr Pepper. Both Coca Cola, Inc., and PepsiCo, Inc., provide bottling services, under contract to Dr Pepper Snapple Group, Inc.

So, the short answer to your question is, "No".
