- Beer is doomed: Germans like shandy. A shandy is a beer diluted with some crap like pop or juice or something. This completely ruins the flavour of the beer of course. But, I guess if you're drinking crappy beer to begin with, its not to big of a deal. But if the Germans like this, what hope is there for any of us???
- Hedonistic beer label: In the world of beer marketing its hard to get noticed. These guys had an interesting idea. But some people are prudes, so they returned the beer. Personally, I could use a little hedonism.
- Some beer isn't fresh: inside freshness codes. Certainly, it would be nice to get an "expiry" date for every beer bought. It really depends on the style of beer and many other factors, but many beers that you buy at your local store may be expired. When I lived in Fort St. John in Northern BC it was hard to find a beer before its expiry date. Plus, the beers were stored at room temp under UV emitting flourescent lights. So they were really bad. Anyway, remember to check your expiry dates.
- And finally, an article on diet choices of beer and wine drinkers. It seems that wine may skew healthier because the wine buyers tend to buy healthier foods anyway. Beer people tend to buy crap. I know I do. I'm pretty bad for that.
Cheers n' such!
