Drink and Read At the Same Time

Rogue Ales is no stranger to unusual recipes,
having brewed beers with chocolate, hazelnut,
maple, rose petals and even garlic over the
years. Its White Whale Ale, however, contains a
truly “novel” ingredient: a few pages torn from a
copy of Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick,” which
were tossed into the brew kettle.

The beer, an India pale ale, was brewed in honor
of Portland, Ore., bookseller Michael Powell
who was inspired to take up his profession after
finding a first edition of Melville’s seminal work
in a box of books he’d purchased.  Presumably,
the pages dissolved (or were filtered out) prior
to fermentation, before they could impart any of
that moldering paper flavor of oxidized beer.

Distilled Ice Cream

Now available - ice cream with distilled spirits
somehow frozen into them from SnoBar Co. of
Florida. This isn't a frozen daiquiri or a slushy
treat with malt liquor in it. These are high-quality
frozen pops and rich ice creams with actual
distilled spirits as part of the ingredients that
took three years of research to develop. You
have to be 21 to buy them.  
You don't say.....

The number of Americans who say they drink has changed
little over time, averaging about 63% since Gallup began
surveying American drinking habits in 1939.
Anheuser-Busch consumes about 15% of the
entire U.S. rice crop for brewing beer.
After writing and signing the Declaration of Independence
in 1776, the founding fathers toasted the signing of the
document with Madeira wine..No one suggested beer.
Abraham Lincoln held a liquor license and
operated several taverns..
British men have been found twice as likely to know the
price of their beer as their partner's bra size. A recent poll
reported  that 77% of males knew how much their beer
costs but only 38% knew the correct size of their mate's bra.
Most vegetable and almost all fruits contain a
small amount of alcohol in them.
The three most common pub names are in the UK are:
The Red Lion; The Crown; The Royal Oak.
Try putting beer inside dough and dunking it in hot oil for
just 20 seconds. When diners bite into the pretzel-like dough
it mixes with the beer to make a delicious taste sensation.
Ya gotta love these guys
