I’ll just let this one speak for itself, except to say this: if was easy to treat everyone decently, then we’d’ve done it already. But if sitting down and having a beer with someone different helps us do better, then I’m all for it.
…but even acknowledging that, it’s pretty cool that they can print on beer foam.
The story might be a year old but I was unaware until now: someone made a beer specifically to drink in the shower.
Although my first reaction is bemusement, this is the kind of silly marketing gimmick that makes me sigh. It isn’t about the beer or the quality of same: It’s about getting drunk in a shower.
Which is not me being judgmental; that’s a 10% beer that someone wants you to take into the shower. Those conditions are prime for raising someone’s intoxication levels rapidly. I’m just not sure I’m comfortable with that.
Then again: I don’t have to drink it!
This will be the last post for this week; it’s my birthday and I’m taking Friday off. Regular postings next week!
This is a long one, but frequent readers of the blog will know that I like reading about the history and science of alcohol. This has a bit of both in there and as always, there are frequently more questions than concrete answers.
Still, pretty cool.
I know this blog has gotten a little bit more political in the last 18ish months…
And I’m OK with it.
But it’s not too often that I find a cool post that is able to directly reference beer and politics well, however this post on the proposed tariffs certainly works for me.
Jeff Alworth is doing a series on the experiences of women in the brewing industry-it’s a four parter but I’m linking to the second piece, because it has links to the other parts.
Check it out.
Fuz passed along to me a guideline someone wrote to help people appreciate beer better. I gave it a read and thought it was pretty solid, so for those readers who aren’t as heavy into beer knowledge as I am, you might want to give it a look.
