Here in Ottawa, we have strip bars that get totally naked (with champagne rooms/lap dances), AND serve alcohol, but lap dances are $20 each. However, right across the river, in Quebec, the drinking age is 18, the dancers get totaly naked, they serve alcohol, and lap dances are $10.

Why isn't every 18 year old US male taking a trip to Quebec???
Palamino's in Vegas is all-nude and they serve alcohol. They were around before the laws changed and got grandfathered in.

I think in this case "grandfathered in" could have a very different and very disturbing meaning.

what my aunts and uncles are telling me and that it was different than Buckeye Beer. I don't remember the Ale, but I do remember Buckeye Beer; it was your typical American Lager.

Buckeye Brewing made Buckeye, Meister Brau & Meister Brau Lite, all were bought by Miller. They stopped making Buckeye and Meister Brau Lite became Miller Lite.

The whole table laughed at him. The server asked me if that was true about Europe.

"I don't think so, but it's true to him right now."
As far as I know, if you were producing it in Germany, you wouldn't be able to call it beer because it contains rice. It's OK for imports to be called beer, even if a German brewer would not be able to call it that.

That said, nobody ridicules the purity law more than German home brewers. If it was after the original purity law from the 1500s, you wouldn't be allowed to make Hefeweizen, because it only allows barley, hops and water, and excludes yeast (Hefe) or wheat (Weizen).

It excluded yeast because they didn't understand what was fermenting there beer. Just how to get it to jump start. Or krausening. It wasn't until pasteur came along that all became clearer.

I read this a while back and found it completely baffling.

Of course, people think we here in Wisconsin have some looney alcohol laws (underage kids can drink in a bar with a parent/guardian, an underage person can drink in a bar with his/her of-age spouse, etc.)

Stroh's six packs were the best beer deal here when I was a kid. I used to get two of them, called them "a pair of s'hortS". Great times.

I always get a kick out of people thinking that you can "skunk" a beer by letting it warm up if it's been cold. I always go on to explain that it has to do with light and not temp but that's where I stop.

Also, it always cracks me up that people don't understand the difference between Ales and Lagers. Most people I've talked to actually think that lagers are "heavier" or something to that effect.
