|You don't say.....
The perfect pour for a Belgium beer has a
well-developed head, which cannot be
achieved by tilting the glass and pouring
slowly. Lift the bottle and back off on an angle,
so the beer comes out in a thin stream. Then
the glass should be filled until the froth comes
out in a head. Do not forget to leave some
beer in the bottle. Pour the last bit of beer
into the glass using the same "thin stream" as
before. This will once again push up the head,
but it will be even and symmetrical.
There's another wild beer out there from, who
else, Dogfish Head. It's Theobroma, which
translates to “food of the gods” in Greek. The
beer is derived from an ancient Aztec recipe
that is believed to be the first chocolate
beverage ever consumed by humans.
Theobroma aims to dispel the notion that
chocolate-flavored alcohol is only for ladies as
it comes in at a hearty nine percent ABV.
Kimber VanRy was sitting on his stoop in
Brooklyn, drinking a beer, when a police
officer gave him a $25 ticket for drinking his
bottle of Sierra Nevada in public. New York
defines a public place as one “to which the
public has access". Van Ry contents his
stoop is private property and that "next you'll
be arrested for drinking that beer in your
kitchen." His case is pending.
|Queen Get A Beer Delivery
The Queen was mistakenly sent 2000
pints of beer when one of her royal
residences was confused with a nearby
pub. Royal staff had no record of any
such order when a truck turned up at
Windsor Castle, west of London, with
12 barrels of lager ahead of England's
football World Cup qualifying match
. A quick telephone call revealed the
mistake - the booze had been destined
for the Windsor Castle pub eight
kilometres away in Maidenhead in
Berkshire county. No word if the Queen
decided to keep the beer.

|Ya gotta love these guys
"When I realized that what I had turned
out to be was a lousy, two-bit pool
hustler and drunk, I wasn't depressed at
all. I was glad to have a profession."
"This is one of the disadvantages of
wine; it makes a man mistake words
"I spent a lot of my money on booze,
beer, birds, and fast cars.
The rest I just squandered ”.
“The trouble with jogging is that the beer
falls out of your glass”.
Before passing out on his couch from
too much drinking:
"Beer...the temporary solution
“I only take drink beer on two occasions;
when I'm thirsty and when I'm not.”
