Beer Baggage
A Qantas airline passenger checked a single can of beer for
flight across Australia.  Really.  The passenger (Mr.
Brewski's Hoppy Hero of the Month), known only as Dean,
skipped the hassle of packing life's little necessities and
simply brought one can of Emu Export beer with him on a
flight from Melbourne to Perth.  

He checked the single can to be sent through baggage claim,
much to the surprise of airport staff.  The tiny can was
loaded up with other baggage and miraculously made it to
the baggage claim conveyor belt in Perth:  The can  came
out well in front of all the other luggage, so the baggage
handlers obviously appreciated it which according to
witnesses delighted Dean.
You don't say.....

Chimay, the 155-year old Trappist ale from Belgium is
famous for the purity of the water they use in brewing. The
Cistercian Trappist brewers have maintained high-quality
wells because they farm organically, which means no
pesticides or contaminants have leached into the ground.
-------------------------
In the early 1990s, there were only seven Trappist breweries
— six in Belgium and one in the Netherlands — but there are
now 11, including one outside of Boston
.---------------------
The IPA category has grown almost tenfold, clocking in
today at more than seven million barrels, and representing
more than 25 percent of the share of total craft beer styles.
------------------------------
The Boston Beer Company, Inc. (Sam Adams) Stock
has dropped 22.4% so far in 2017
----------------------------
Whole Foods sells beer in 40 states plus Washington DC.
-------------------
U.S. beer sales have slipped from 213.2 million barrels in
2008 to fewer than 200 million last year. In reality, years of
double-digit percentage-point growth in craft beer dwindled
to 6.2% growth last year (less than that of imports).

The "
Beer Choir" combines love of brew and singing. Their
motto: 'Zero talent is required' There are 17 chapters
nationwide. Members are required to "sing responsibily."
Ya gotta love these guys
Henry David Thoreau
“We got here a draught of beer…a lumberer’s drink,
which would acclimate and naturalize a man at once—
which would make him see green, and, if he slept,
dream that he heard the wind sough among the pines.”

J.P. Donleavy
“When I die, I want to decompose in a barrel of porter
and have it served in all the pubs in Dublin. I wonder
would they know it was me?"

Ray Bradbury
"Beer’s intellectual. It's a shame somany idiots drink it"

Stephen King
"A man who lies about beer makes enemies."
Anne Sexton
God has a brown voice, as soft and full as beer.

Milan Kundera
“Isn’t beer the holy libation of sincerity? The potion
that dispels all hypocrisy, any charade of fine manners?
The drink that does nothing worse than incite its
fans to urinate in all innocence, to gain weight in
all frankness?”


Hunter S. Thompson
There is an ancient Celtic axiom that says ‘Good people
drink good beer.’ Which is true, then as now. Just look
around you in any public barroom and you will quickly
see: Bad people drink bad beer. Think about it.”

Drink In Your Seats At Ball Game
Ryan Strnad  a Wisconsin native who sells beer in the aisles
during Milwaukee Brewers’ home games, is claiming that

favor of purchasing their brews at the newly remodeled
concessions stands at the stadium so he recently purchased
two large billboards near Miller Park, to encourage baseball
fans to Drinks in the Seats.
