    Default International Beer Day August 5!

    Didn't know this but a friend emailed me the news. Cheers folks! I intend to celebrate with a few tonite at a local watering hole or two. And where would we be without Beer? Civilization may have not made it out of the middle ages without it. A wee bit of alcohol present but it's essentially a health drink; barley, hops, water and yeast. That's it folks. And to think, some people drink sodas.

    Anyway, a bit of moderation is always essential, but have a Cold one on me folks. I will reciprocate.

    Again, Cheers!

    Did you know that Native Americans, Aboriginal Australians and Eastern Asian folk are 'allergic' to beer?

    They lack a genetic enzyme or something that enables them to process alcohol in the same way that we do. Apparently, it's all down to the fact that for centuries, instead of water, we drank beer as it was safer and now we have a much higher tolerance for it.

    Just a little titbit I thought I'd throw in, given that it's International Beer Day!

    Down the hatch, all!

    You sure know your suds, girl. Of course some process much more than others. But exactly. Most of the water in Beer is boiled in the process of brewing hence it was safer than stuff people would scoop out of rivers and such.

    I wonder of the drunk in the stands was celebrating Int'l. Beer day ?

    Yesterday, Aug. 5th, some moron threw a beer bottle at Usain Bolt just as the Finals of the 100 meter dash began. To add insult to injury, the beer bottle was not a Jamacian Red Stripe, but looks like it might be a German Heineken.



    They allow you to drink at the Olympics.

    They allow you purchase bottled beer at the Olympics ? ? ?

    They do search you before you enter the stadium.... Ohhh that's right... they had a security staffing snafu, and probably just wanted to get everyone in their without a big delay.
