A woman in Maryland has finally been absolved of her guilt over stealing a beer stein during a trip to
Germany — a trip she took in 1965, when she was only 18. Celeste Sweeney recently had been feeling
remorseful go, so she just now sent it back l along with a note explaining her impetuous actions.
“I took this beer stein from your establishment [in] the summer of 1965 when I was young, reckless and
inconsiderate,” reads the note,“I am sorry I did not get it back to you sooner. Hopefully, it arrives in one
piece.”Sweeney, who sent the stein back at a cost of around $100, also offered to pay for the mug itself,
if it broke in transit, “Vielen Dank!” wrote the Hofbräuhaus in a letter sent back to Sweeney
“Thank you very much for sending back the Hofbrauhaus Stein from 1965! It was a nice surprise for us
and such a great story that many newspapers in Germany wrote about it,” the establishment said,
As a show of gratitude, the Hofbräuhaus also sent Sweeney a different stein — telling her she was free
to keep it with a “quiet conscience”and offered to buy her a few rounds if she mades it back to Munich.
|Kool-Aid Where It Began
Hastings, Nebraska, is where Kool-Aid was born, and its’ 25,000 residents have a lot of pride in that
heritage as does First Street Brewery. Owner Nathan Hoeft has always been reluctant to just dump the
fruity drink mix into some random beer and call it a day. “Trying to keep that Kool-Aid flavor in a beer is
not really that easy,” he said. But now, he says he finally stumbled across the perfect beer to add a
little Kool-Aid twist to — the Berliner Weisse, a traditional German sour beer that’s typically served
with Woodruff or raspberry syrup for extra sweetness. Thus, the “Burlington Weiss” was born
If you order a Burlington Weiss today, the bartender will pour you a light, reddish-gold beer with a
foamy head, then squirt a little Kool-Aid syrup on top. And it’s delicious...if you like Kool-Aid.
Some party animals aren’t letting the coronavirus pandemic get them down.In fact, a group of New
Jersey friends have outright embraced the outbreak by throwing a COVID-19-themed bash complete
with hazmat suits and Corona, the beer brand many confused Americans have mistaken for the virus.
Naturally, some might find holding a contagion celebration amidst a worldwide outbreak a tad insensitive,
but party goes said they only did it to have a good time. BREAKING NEWS - Corona in a desperate
effort to disassociate themselves from the Cornoavirus has changed their name. Here is the picture of
