Beer Champagne

Boston Beer Co Inc's Samuel Adams is
launching a champagne-like brew later this
month to prove that beer can be worthy of a
New Year's toast. The limited run beer, called
Infinium, will be sold in 750-ml bottles with
foil-covered cork tops, like champagne. It is
gold-colored, crisp and dry, with nearly double
the alcohol content of an average beer and more
than some wines. Infinium is the result of a
collaboration between Jim Koch, founder of
Sam Adams and Germany's Weihenstephan
Brewery, the world's oldest existing brewery.  

Only about 15,000 cases will be available for the
North American market, and Koch said that
should generate less than $2 million in revenue
(at $19.99 per bottle retail). "It's a small fraction
of our sales, but it makes a big statement."

Everyone is a Critic
Steve Cowan, 67, from Madison, WI, after
drinking a case of beer,
used a shotgun on his
television to show his disgust over Bristol Palin's
Dancing With The Stars routine .  The last time
he shot his television was over a Brett Favre
interception in a 2004 playoff game against the
Eagles. The play ended the Packers season. Mr.
Cowan was charged with 2nd-degree reckless
endangerment and drunkenness.
You don't say.....

If you collect beer bottles your are a labeorphilist.  
Tegestology is what collecting beer mats is called
Bourbon is the official alcohol of the United States, by an
act of Congress.  Many people have attempted to have that
overturned in favor of beer instead throughout
the years to no avail.
King Frederick the Great once banned coffee
to bolster sagging beer sales.
In 1116 BC, Chinese imperial edict stated that heaven
required people to drink beer.
The first six-pack of beer was produced by the Pabst
Brewery in the 1940s. The brewery conducted numerous
studies, which found six cans were the ideal weight for the
average housewife to carry home from the store.
In olde England, town inns paid a government tax known as
a 'scot' for serving beer. Beer lovers who left town to drink
at rural pubs were said to be drinking 'scot free'.

The United States two-dollar bill features three brewers:
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Samuel Adams.
In fact, George Washington installed a brewhouse on his
grounds at Mount Vernon.
Ya gotta love these guys

knees start to bend backwards."

Clement Freud
"If you resolve to give up drinking, smoking,
and loving you don't actually live longer -
it just seems longer"

Arthur Landale
"Beer is the answer.  
I don't remember the question."

W.C. Fields
"I never drink water.  I'm afraid it will
become habit forming."
Sidney Greenstreet
"I distrust a man who says'when'.  If he's got to
be careful not to drink too much, it's because he's
not to be trusted when he does.”

Dorthy Parker
"One more beer and I would have been
under the host."

Gareth Chilcott
"I'm off for a quiet pint - followed by
adozen noisy ones."
