"Here and There"

The best thing about winter is you can put your beer outside on the back porch to
chill and thereby save space in your refrigerator.... for more beer!

Our friend Pavel from the Czech Republic used to say " a fine beer may be judged
with only one sip but it's better to be thoroughly sure."

The largest selection of Belgium beers (outside of Belgium) can be found at
Brasserie Beck in Washington, DC on K Street.

Some Native American tribes ate six raw almonds before drinking to help
prevent intoxication and the resulting hangover.

Bifidus is a bacterial that aids in digestion.  It works as a hangover helper if you
place a teaspoon or two of it in a large lass of water before bedtime.

"I like fresh beer brewed by myself.  I know what I like, and I know what I enjoy.  My
feeling is, the closer you are to the source, the better the beer!"
John Reynolds

For fast cooling of your beer add water to the ice in your cooler.  The water
will fall to just above freezing, and with your beer submerged completely it's
only a short wait for a perfectly chilled brew.

"For a quart of Ale is a meal for a KIng"
William Shakespeare

President Oboma is the only president to have home brewed (actually his chefs) in
the White House - a Honey Ale, Honey Blonde, and Honey Porter.

Are you the kind of person who enjoys eating big pungent cheeses like Roquefort or
Gorgonzola?  If so, match it with a Barley Wine and be amazed!

Beers made by monks are produced just like any other beer using modern
equipment and techniques. Sorry, the monks don't go barefoot into the vats.

Here's two beertails we like:  Beer Buster- pour 1/2 pint beer into a chilled mug
then add 2 oz. of vodka and stir slightly.  A bit strong but tasty.
Alt Shot: mix 1 bottle of chilled altbier with 1 bottle of chilled cola.  Stir. Yummy.

A tidal wave of beer killed nine people when a brewery tank ruptured in 1814 in
London. The tank contained over 3,500 barrels of beer.  What a way to go.

"Whoever serves beer or wine watered down, he himself deserves in them to drown."
Medieval proverb

Beer was safer to drink than water in medieval Europe since there was no water
filtration while the brewing process would kill dangers containments.

For our money the best of the strongest beers in the world are Schorschbrau
Eisbock (30% ABV), Sudstern XXL (27% ABV) and Dogfish 120 (19% ABV)

Most experts agree that the best beer bar in China is the Wudaokou
BeerGarden located in the heart of Beijing.

Our favorite beer style to drink when eating a giant soft salted pretzel - bock.

The bar industry has long relied on shaking a 170-pound keg to guess how
much beer remains. Now there's new RFID technology that not only tells the  bar
how much is left but can be sent to interested customers.

We really enjoy a spring Mai Bock but always wonder how could you
order it if it's my bock.  And once you get the beer is it still my bock or
has it become your bock??  Ouch.

See you next month!
