Hmm... funny things about beer, without being a jackass... I was at the store, picked up a case of Guinness. The handle on the box ripped and the box fell out of my hand, a couple bottles broke and the precious liquid began to spread on the floor around the box.
I told the cashier what happened, and said 'I hate when I break beer!' and she said, 'Yeah, it is such a waste'. She didn't really look like a 'beer drinker', but I could tell she understood.
It was probably code for, "crap, now I have to clean that up"

"I fear the day I am released from prison," Grant, 27, said in his affidavit. "I do not know if I can be a productive member of society and still control the desires and craving to use alcohol."

This will be a great statement to have read to his parole board if his case ever comes up.

The Keurig I just bought my wife for xmas brews (by default, no less) at 192*F...However, I've not noticed anything particularly insane about the coffee and tea I've drank from this apparent implement of evil!

Gave my neighbor a Hefeweizen and he said it was to hoppy, made me laugh a little. He then went on to insult my brew by saying it tasted like Old Milwaukee

You guys might want to read this before you decide not to buy from small craft brewers owned by larger companies.

Goose Island had been able to do some really awesome things since Ab InBev bought them. I've talked to the brewers at one of the pubs and they've all said that the purchase had allowed them to be more creative and experiment more than before because they don't have to worry about producing the mass market beers. It's freed up a lot of production space...Bourbon County Stout and it's assorted varieties has become much easier to find, even on tap out here in the burbs.
