But Guinness is Good For You

Charges against Mariah Carey have just been
dropped.  The singer and husband Nick Cannon
were shocked when an anonymous tip to the
Los Angeles Department of Children and Family
(DCFS) accused her of putting the babies at risk
by drinking alcohol in her hospital room. after
the birth of her twins. Mariah admitted to
investigators she drank a Guinness but only on
the advice of medical staff who informed her a
dark beer would help with lactation.

Too Old to Sell Beer

An 86-year-old beer vendor, Mildred Block,
who walks with a cane, lost her court case
trying to prove discrimination when her
employer at NY's Citi Field (Mets) moved her
but not her younger, able-bodied co-worker.
The company insisted the reassignment was due
to the excessive lines at her beer stand, not her
age or any perceived disability. She was  
replaced with a 75-year-old employ.  

The dispute started in 2008, when Block was
83. She earned about $40 in tips per shift. Block
said one of the managers said she was an
"antique dinosaur, old cripple". She would have
made about $3,000 in tips for a season.
You don't say.....

A 12 oz. glass of most beers has fewer calories than two
slices of bread and contains no fat.
The average American annually consumes 47.3 gallons of
soda, 26.5 gallons of coffee, and 23.1 gallons of beer.
In the Middle Ages, "nunchion" was the word for beer only
lunches. It was a combination of the words "noon scheken",
or noon drinking. In those days, a large chunk of bread was
called lunch. So if you ate bread with your nunchion, you
had what we today still call a luncheon.
Barley is the magic grain for beer since it contains the
enzymes necessary to convert starches into fermentable
sugars. The grains are roasted for the darker styles.
At a London brewery in 1814, a vat containing more than
100,000 gallons of ale exploded, sending the beer rushing
down the street through poor residential areas. It destroyed
two houses and one pub, killing nine people in the process.
The reason that the Pilgrims (and other seafaring folk) could
absolutely not run out of beer is because the beer they had
on board was spruce beer. Spruce beer was their only
source of vitamin C, which staved off scurvy.  
In the 11th century, Arnold of Soissons, a bishop in the
Benedictine St. Medard's Abbey in Soissons, France, began
to brew beer. That had to be why he was canonized.
Ya gotta love these guys

"When I heated my home with oil, I used an
average of 800 gallons a year. I have found that I
can keep comfortably warm for an entire winter
with slightly over half that quantity of beer."

"I drink with impunity...or anyone
else who invites me."

"Life is a waste of time, time is a waste of life, so
get wasted all of the time and have the
time of your life."

"Whiskey and Beer are a man's worst enemies...
but the man that runs away from his
enemies is a coward!"

“Give beer to those who are perishing, wine to
those who are in anguish;Let them drink and
forget their poverty and remember their misery
no more."
