The next time you walk into a bar, be careful, there may be a church service going on.
Across the country, several churches are turning to suds to attract new congregants. Most of the ministries are Lutheran, which makes sense, because only heathens could come up with an idea like this. Other congregations stay in their churches and bring craft beer to the pews.
So if you’ve got a hangover on Sunday morning, maybe you should have the hair of the dog with Jesus.
Still think the government shutdown isn’t affecting you? It will certainly be affecting your taste buds and your liver.
The shutdown has shuttered the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, a little-known agency that approves everything about beer, from the construction of new breweries, to labels for the bottles, to the recipes themselves. That means that brewers who planned to introduce a new beer in the months ahead now has to wait until after Congress figures something out.
And even then, there will be backups. If only this could have prevented Samuel Adams from releasing its winter beer two weeks into fall.
Ever feel like hanging out with the guys, but you know if you say so to your lady friend that she’s going to have a problem with it? You should probably dump her.
At the very least, you should avoid doing what a man in Texas did. Police say a man in Edinburg, Texas staged his own kidnapping so he could have a few beers with his friends. His wife told authorities that two armed, masked men forced their way into their home and made off with the man. A manhunt was soon launched, but nothing was found.
He came home the next morning, saying his captors had let him go.
Over the past 52 years, humans have learned a lot about living in space. We’ve learned that spiders are still gross in zero-G. We’ve learned that absolutely nobody has experimented with sex in a weightless environment at all (::wink::). We’ve learned that, while pencils write without gravity, pencil shavings also fly willy-nilly without gravity into instrumentation.
Folks, for too long, the American people have been getting fleeced. They spend their hard-earned money, and expect to get what they pay for, only to be swindled. Michigan is looking to take a stand for those who belly up to the bar.
It’s inevitable, wherever man goes, beer is destined to follow. For example, the pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock in what is now Massachusetts because the Mayflower was running low on beer. So, as humanity expands its presence in space, we take our brew with us.
We all enjoy a glass o’ grog, do we not? But it be expensive t’buy when in port. What if ye were able t’make alcohol in yer gut and not need t’drink a thing?
A 61-year-old landlubber from Texas can do just that. He found he was gettin’ his sea legs without havin’ touched a drop o’ the good stuff. Doctors eventually figured out he had a type o’ yeast livin’ in his gut, and it was feedin’ off starchy foods he ate. The yeast would make alcohol an’ get him drunk. It be called auto-brewery syndrome.
Our worst fears continue to be realized: animals have come to take our booze.
In Australia, a land that is designed to kill everything, around campsites, murder of the most important degree took place. While campers slept, a monster crept into to their camps, guzzled cans of their beer and then ran off, the horrific damage it had created been over. This took place over a series of days.
Today we’re going to talk about Facebook. Not in the “I don’t understand this technology, so I’m going to criticize it” kind of way. Not even in the “I hate it when people do this on Facebook” way. I do that enough as it is.
Nearly 10 years ago, I sat down and filled out a fairly extensive form with info about my university so that we could get Facebook at our school. This was back when they were new and for college kids only. That means it was basically just a place to stalk someone you’re interested in.
One of the popular features were groups. And for some reason, they’re still around today. Continue reading →
