|Beer and the Bible
The Bible and beer can go together. It
happens every Sunday night the Phyrst
Bar in downtown State College, PA. Rev.
Thomas Kingshipp, leader of the services,
said about eight area churches are in
support of his "church in a bar" ministry,
and they pray for him often. "I know
there's always going to be an issue with
alcohol. But I'm trying to teach balance
and moderation along with the bible. We
think of it as music, ministry, and Molson,
with the emphasis on ministry" Fifty to
seventy-five college students attend the
service on a regular basis.
Fast Cold For Beer
For those with no patience, the Tinchilla
can chill a can of cola or beer 240 times
faster than the average fridge, or in 60
seconds. It works with the help of a little
thermal conduction. The Tinchilla will
suspend the can around ice and cold
water and begin spinning the can. The
ice and water inside will constantly be in
contact with the can during spinning.
After the process is complete crack the
can open (it won't spray because of the
spinning, supposedly) online for $10.
|You don't say.....
Data has also shown that wine and spirits are losing
share to beer during the recession. A total of 53.7%
of drinkers surveyed said they are more likely to order
a beer than a mixed drink, while 26% were neutral
and 21% disagreed.
Ever wondered why, in a state of 24 million that ranks
second-thirstiest in terms of beer consumption, Texas
has only eight craft breweries?
Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, the popular food and
drink destination with seven Delaware area locations,
offers guests their own "Economic Stimulus Package":
five times a week, at least one table of guests will be
randomly selected to receive a "bailout," meaning that
Iron Hill will buy them their meal.
Two unrelated beer facts just to fill the page:
1. A barrel contains 31 gallons of beer.
What Americans commonly refer to as a keg is
actually 15.5 gallons, or a half-barrel...
2.The original text of the Reinheitsgebot only had
three ingredients: Barley, hops, and water. Yeast
wasn't mentioned for another 35 years.
|Ya gotta love these guys
"Marriage is based on the theory that when a man
discovers a particular brand of beer exactly to his
taste he should at once throw up his job and go
to work in a brewery.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"God made yeast, as well as dough, and he loves
fermentation just as dearly as he loves vegetation"
“There's nothing wrong with sobriety
Frederick The Great
""It is disgusting to note the increase in the
quantity of coffee used by my subjects and the
amount of money that goes out of the country
in consequence. Everybody is using coffee. If
possible, this must be prevented. My people
must drink beer."
