|Smoky And The Bandit
Four underage Louisiana State Univ. students
were arrested recently after they were found
towing a trailer full of beer and s bottles of hard
liquor along Interstate 10 in Alabama,
The Sheriff's Office stopped their pickup for an
expired tag. Then then found nearly 2,000 beers,
eight bottles of liquor and five liters of boxed
wine. The students were heading to Gulf Shores
for spring break. Deputies confiscated 106 18-
packs of Natural Light beer, five 12-packs of
Corona beer and five liters of Franza wine and
bottles of rum, tequila, vodka and whiskey
BeerNexus recommends they ask for a jury trial
- It'll be hard to prove that Natural Light is beer.
A Hymn and a Beer
Graeme Dutton, a methodist minister and real ale
fan, holds religious meetings in the Bradford
Brewery - to prove you can love beer and God.
Between hymns, he gives his blessing to some
barrels of locally-brewed beers to wish them a
safe journey on their way to pubs across the
district. He has called it St Arnold’s Pub Church
ministry – named after St Arnold of Metz, Patron
Saint of beer and brewing, noting that some of
the world’s best brewers are monks. The
brewery calls itself “The Vicar’s Inn”, whenever
Dutton is there to preach anyone who comes.

Sales of craft beer accounted for only 5% of all American
beer sales in 2010; today it is 11% and growing.
When the Cullen-Harrison Act was enacted by Congress
and signed into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt, in
1933 beer became legal again, as long as it was below 3.2
percent alcohol by volume. On that first day,
1.5 million barrels of suds were consumed
Ben and Jerry's The Burlington, VT ice-cream specialist, has
created a craft beer dubbed Salted Caramel Brownie Brown
Ale, with Fort Collins , CO-based New Belgium Brewing .
The brew is scheduled to hit the market in fall, 2015.
Heineken is offering to refund the cost of a six-pack of
Heineken Light to any purchaser who asks for their money
back. Heineken revamped their Light recipe adding Cascade
hops and won a Gold Medal at The World Beer Contest
Sales of beer — or any other alcohol — are prohibited
in the general seating areas of NCAA-sponsored
events (though big spenders in the luxury boxes often
get an exception to that rule).
The Florida Legislature is poised to pass a bill that would
legalize 64-ounce refillable beer jugs or "growlers," which
are legal in every other state. Florida already allows quart
and gallon growlers, Distributor groups fought against the
legislation claiming it would hurt their business.
|Ya gotta love these guys
“It's not a hangover, it's beer flu.”
“I don't like the word alcoholic. I like to think
of myself as an advanced drinker.”
“I wish I could trade my heart for another liver so
I could drink more and care less.”
"“I didn't text you, four pints of Double IPA did.”
“Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk.
That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.”
