|St. Paddy's Drink Bomb
Try this one to celebrate St. Paddy's Day, just be
sure you have a designated ddriver - it's not for
the faint of hear or stomach: take off of the
Inception Bomb. You start off with a "Baby
Guinness", made with Patron Tequila topped
with Irish cream. It drops into the second shot
-an "Irish breakfast", made with 2 Gingers Irish
Whiskey and butterscotch liqueur, which drops
into orange juice and then drops into the third
shot - a "Car Bomb", made with 2 Gingers Irish
Whiskey with Irish cream, dropped into a pitcher
of Guinness. Of course a serious beer guy would
likely say what a waste of good Guinness!
Ice Cap Beer
Coors famously uses Rocky Mountain water for
their beer, but the Greenland Ice Cap brewery
produces a number of different styles using
water from one of the ice caps. The ice used in
the beer is somewhere between "2000 and
180000" years old, which would make for the
most epic Born On dating ever: 13 A.D.
La Brasserie Fischer matched that years ago
when it made beer using water from ice blocks
that could be up to 250,000 years old acquired
during an expedition into Greenland

no other strong flavours to contend with. The short
cooking time also means that most of the integrity
of flavors stay intact.

Joe Hackel, a Denver scientist/aeropace engineer, has come
up with Pop and Stop--a 3D printed, silicone combination
bottle opener and stopper. The beer topper is made from
sturdy silicone that creates the secure seal.
Eighty years ago, the American Can Co., was the first beer

“Don't trust a brilliant idea unless it
survives the hangover.”
“The first thing in the human personality that
dissolves when drinking too much beer is dignity.”
“I think a man ought to get drunk at least twice
a year just on principle (and beer) , so he
won't let himself get snotty about it”
"It is most absurdly said, in popular language, of
any man, that he is disguised in liquor; for, on the
contrary, most men are disguised by sobriety.”

“Be wary of strong drink, it can make you shoot
at the tax collector...and miss.”
“We borrowed golf from Scotland as we
borrowed whiskey. Not because it is Scottish,
but because it is good.”
