|Beer Pitchers Replaced!
|Just out in time for the holidays is a new invention from Alberti
Enterprises which they claim might just end the need for pitchers filled
with beer at your next party. They call it The Table Tapper.
"The whole purpose of the Table Tapper is to replace the standard
pitcher for a group of people at bar or keg party" said Tonly Alberti,
the inventor of the Tapper. "Customers at pubs would order the
Tapper, fill it up at the bar, then bring it to their table and everyone
can then pour their own drinks."
The unit stands almost three feet tall, holds 116 ounces of liquid, and
features a plastic tube of a polycarbonate mixture - the same material
used in bulletproof shields - making it virtually indestructible. The
Tapper'sr plastic is approved by the Food and Drug Administration
and also acts as a natural insulator, keeping the beer colder for a
longer period of time - making it superior to a standard plastic pitcher.

|Rude Elf Gets Mad
Bethlehem Brew Works (PA) has been forced to drop its
Rudolph's Reserve Ale after losing a copyright battle with
The Rudolph Company which owns the right to sell beer
with the red-nosed reindeer's name and image on it.
Bethlehem owner Jeff Fegley, in what he called an "in your
face" response, has now brought back the beer under the
name Rude Elf's Reserve, with a label that features a
red-nosed elf holding an open bottle with a reindeer visible
in the background.
There is no word if Troeg's brewery (PA) is concerned
about Rude Elf. Toreg's produces the popular cherry
flavored Mad Elf Ale.
And I bet you thought all Elves were happy.
