Highest Brewery
in the World

Unlike wine, beer can be made
anywhere. All you need is water,
malted barley, hops and yeast.
But to market a new brand successfully,
you need a gimmick. The Swiss
Monstein brewery has it.

"It's the highest brewery in Europe,"
says Andreas Aergerter, the manager
and one of the founders .

"We call our brewery the 'last beer stop
before heaven', because it adds to the
brewery's appeal, especially among
English speakers who like the slogan."

But brewing at 1,600 metres above sea
level does present problems. Aergerter
had to install a special kettle to account
for the difference in atmospheric
pressure, which makes water boil at a
lower temperature.
He also had to find a yeast that would
work in the thinner air.

Beer and Baseball

In the 1921 World Series New York
Giants Manager John  McGraw  told
his ballplayers that it was a sign of
good luck if they could spot a beer
wagon before going to the game. He
then hired a driver to haul a wagon
outside the ballpark when he knew his
players would be arriving  His team
won. McGraw then hired the
driver for the rest of the series and
the Giants won very game.

7 Reasons Why Beers is Better Than Wine

1.  Beer doesn't rely on a piece of wood to
give it character.
2.  The twist off cap.  Wine makers are just
starting to figure that one out.
3.  Beer doesn 't need a movie about two
losers (Sideways) to increase its popularity.
4.  Beer never has a "bad year."
5.  No phony pseudo-sophisticated snobby
elitist names starting with "chateau."
6.  Beer is so cool we use to to describe
ourselves.  We want six-pack abs, not
magnum thighs.
7.  The Mayflower was loaded with beer not
wine.  So was Ben Franklin when he
discovered electricity.

The People's Daily, China-

Drew Carey -
“Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a
support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY,
and they meet at the bar.”

Fran Lebowitz-
"The telephone is a good way to talk to people without
having to offer them a drink."
