|Are You The One?
Hamm’s, which bills itself as “the beer … refreshing,” has announced a contest to find the library-goer
who hid several cans of Hamm’s beer behind some paneling at a Washington state library some time in
the 1980s. News of the hidden stash recently made headlines after facilities workers at the Walla Walla
Public Library discovered the beer — which is estimated to be over 30 years old — during a
reorganizing of the facility.
Did you hear about the Hamm’s stash that’s been hiding in a Washington library since the 1980s?” asks
Hamm’s on social media. “We’re on a mission to find the owner. Prove that the 30-year-old Hamm’s were
yours and there might be a special surprise in it for you.”The “special surprise” is a gift card worth a
whopping 30 cases of Hamm’s, or “one [case] for every year they’ve been missing their beer,” Hamm’s
has since confirmed For a chance to claim the prize, the rightful owner is being instructed to DM Hamm’s
on Instagram (@HammsTheBeer) and provide any evidence of their claim.

|Sure I eat what I advertise. Sure I eat Wheaties for breakfast. A good
bowl of Wheaties with beer can’t be beat.”
“I don't get drunk when I have too much beer I just get less class and more fun”.
"I used to think drinking lots of beer was bad for me so I gave up thinking.”.
"Why do I drink Champagne for breakfast? Doesn’t everyone"
“There comes a time in every woman’s life when the only thing that helps
is a glass of strong ale.”
"Can’t we just get rid of craft beer menus? Do we really have to be reminded every
time we go out to a nice restaurant that we have no idea what we are doing? Why
don’t they just give us a trigonometry quiz with the menu?”
“Too much of anything is bad, but too much beer is just about right."
“Love makes the world go round? Not at all. Beer makes it go round twice as fast.”

stronger than beer before breakfast.”
