  • Can Pastors Have a Beer?

    Christian Post ^ | 08/07/2017 | Shane Idleman
    A few years ago, I attended a conference where pastors were encouraged to meet at a pub after the general sessions. A few of these pastors could exercise their liberty, but why publicly? I wondered how many people at the conference stumbled because of it. The demands of life often tempt us to seek gratification in alcohol and other things. We must be on high alert. The enemy uses "opportune times" to draw us away from God. (cf. Luke 4:13.) The line is so thin that it is often hard to determine when we cross over. The person who consumes...

    It brings me no pleasure to tell you this, sincerely. I mean, I can be a bit of a pill at times; I know that. Hell, maybe I’ve even delighted in giving a bit of bad news a few times in my life. I don’t know! I’m not perfect. I’m barely even good. This is different, though. This truly pains me to say, because I know how important it is to you. But it has to be said. Here goes nothing. Pliny the Elder, the seemingly unobtainable God-level brew, the Imperial IPA with a BeerAdvocate score of 100 out of...

    A caller told Swansea police that Busch was returning to the helicopter at around 8:15 p.m. and appeared to be too intoxicated to take off. His speech appeared mumbled and slurred. But he blew a .000 on a breathalyzer test. Busch told officers that he had a conceal carry license and had a Rohrbaugh R9 9mm in the front pocket of his pants. He told them that the weapon was, "hot." A search of the helicopter turned up several weapons. Police discovered a loaded Ruger LCR 22 LR revolver, a Ruger SP101 .357 Magnum revolver with four live rounds, and...
  • When Will Canned Beer Explode?

    07/05/2017 4:03:55 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 56 replies
    Four years ago, the writing was on the wall for beer bottles. Everyone from NPR to Business Insider was covering the environmental benefits and convenience of beer in cans. And that, as opposed to glass bottles, aluminum prevents any light whatsoever from getting through and damaging delicious libations. Local breweries like Discretion and Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing have since begun canning some varietals, and Uncommon Brewers—which has only ever done cans—appears more popular than ever. Canned wine has even started taking off. And yet when you go to the grocery store shopping for Deschutes Black Butte Porter or Lagunitas’ Censored...

    A man floating an Oregon river was thrown out of his inner tube by some turbulent rapids, but he heroically managed to save his beer. A video filmed by Loren Ruark this month shows a man escaping from the heat by floating the Willamette River in an inner tube. The man hits some turbulent rapids, which send him tumbling out of the tube. The man's entire body ends up underwater -- except for one arm, which holds his beer out of the water. The rapids-riding man is able to climb back into the tube without spilling his beverage and victoriously...

  • Mexican Brewery Portrays Trump as Gun-slinging Nazi Mariachi

    A new Mexican beer has a label depicting a gun-toting, gloomy, mariachi President Donald Trump with a swastika belt buckle. The “Amigous Cerveza” beer has the word “amigo” misspelled to allegedly make fun of a mispronunciation of the word by Americans, reported Reuters. The back label of the brew says the Republican president should be “in a mad house, not the White House.” The chief executive of brewery, Casa Cervecera Cru Cru, Luis Enrique de la Reguera, was reported to be surprised with the success of the product. The original production was gone within a week. “We knew that a...

    Heavy drinking can lead to a number of serious health problems, including increased risk of cancer, heart disease, and dementia, but consuming even moderate levels of alcohol could be dangerous, as well, new research suggests. The study, published in The BMJ, finds that moderate drinkers were three times more likely to experience a decline in mental skills than people who drank no alcohol at all. For the study, researchers analyzed data on weekly alcohol intake in 550 healthy British men and women over a period of 30 years. The participants had an average age of 43 at the start of...

    Over on this thread discussing what has become of Fox News ratings the conversation slipped into the famous New Coke fiasco, and then onto discussion of what happened to Schiltz beer. This seemed like far too important a topic not to have it's own thread. Especially given the onset of summer. So lets have your opinions, good or bad, on the many regional American macro-brews of days past, both the survivors and the many more dead soldiers. Pictures are greatly appreciated!

  • Beer Is Better Pain Reliever Than Tylenol, Study Finds

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Got a few aches and pains? Before you head to the medicine cabinet and reach for those over-the-counter painkillers, consider drinking a few beers. A new study, led by Dr. Trevor Thompson from the University of Greenwich, and published in The Journal of Pain, suggests that throwing back a few cold ones actually relieves your pain better than Tylenol. The study, reported by Lifehacker, found that raising your blood alcohol content to the legal limit of .08%, or about three or four beers deep, elevates your pain threshold significantly. The research involved 18 studies and more than...

    Many of us are all too familiar with the "beer goggles" effect: friends and strangers alike become more attractive after a drink or two. Undoubtedly, drinking alcohol lowers our inhibitions and makes us more open to experimentation with the same sex. In a new study, published in The Journal of Social Psychology, straight men were found to be more physically attracted to other men after a few drinks. "Most notably, alcohol intake was related to increased sexual willingness of men with a same-sex partner, suggesting a potential shift in normative casual sexual behavior among heterosexual men," wrote the authors in...

For awhile it looked like they would have to replace their 12 year old label because the Michigan Liquor Control Commission  suddenly realized that it violated one of their zillion administrative rules that states "an advertisement or label affixed to a container, covering, carton, or case of containers of alcoholic liquor shall not depict or make reference in any manner to minors."The Commission apparently relented after Founders apologized for...

Students will learn the principles of fermentation...
