"Post-fermentation dry hopping allows the [beer to achieve] 10% ABV." It's implied. "Allows" could be replaced by "facilitates". It's a complete, incorrect sentence. (Oh crap, I just posted a "Well actually"!)

Except that it was already posted correctly earlier. The previously posted sentence was, in fact, incomplete.

Except that the previously posted sentence was not on BEVMO's sign, as posted in this thread. So you're telling me that the sign in this thread is not real? Or is the previously posted sentence not real? Which is it; and how am I supposed to know which one to believe?

Another angle: the previously posted sentence was, in fact, a complete sentence including a subject and predicate. It was supposedly not, however, correctly quoted from the original source, which was also a complete sentence, assuming it was posted correctly.

This isn't funny, and it isn't about beer; let's move on shall we.

You say that, yet continue to bring it up.

This isnt as funny as it is frustrating. During a tailgate a few weeks ago, I was telling my uncles how I had gotten into homebrewing. One of them, who should know better since he is the CFO for a guy who owns wineries and alcohol distributing companies, continued to insist that HB can kill people. I assured him that infections happen but normally they dont cause any harm. Maybe the occasional sickness but I had never heard of someone dying from HB. I even told him that I had in fact drank some infected beer of mine with nothing more than a bad taste after. He still insisted that it could kill people. Needless to say, he wont be getting any this holiday season.

You mean never cause any harm. Human pathogens cannot live and reproduce in fermented beer. Wort yes, but not beer. Infected beer may taste nasty at times, but it cannot make you ill.

I've heard several times, "Nothing in beer can kill you." My professional winemaker brother, who also makes HB, confirmed it.
