They’ve Done It Again

From the makers of classic beers like Bud Light Golden Wheat, Bud Light Platinum and Bud Light Chelada comes the next thing to ruin your taste buds and give you a headache, Bud Light Lime Lima-a-Rita. It’s 8% abv(which is sure to be its only redeeming quality) and will most likely remind you absolutely nothing of a well made margarita. […]

Carlsberg Workers Strike Over Only Being Allowed to Drink at Lunch

Carlsberg employees go on strikeIn the latest story reminding us yanks that we may be just a bit too uptight at times, still not too far removed from certain aspects of our evangelical roots ( perhaps), over 1,000 Carlsberg brewery workers went on strike recently, apparently up in arms about the company’s new “Lunch-Only” beer policy.

That’s right, up until now, employees of the Danish brewer were allowed to drink as much as they liked on the job…with one minor caveat.  According to Carlsberg spokesman Jens Bekke, the only restriction was “that you could not be drunk at work. It was up to each and everyone to be responsible.” Hey, seems fair to me…

Snowed in = Beered in

February 9, 2010

I’m visiting the Arlington, VA area this weekend and it just started snowing in the past hour or so.  Normally it wouldn’t be that big of a deal, except the NWS has just released an updated forecast of 20-30 inches over the next 30 hours!  Some areas are supposed to exceed 30 inches!  This should definitely be the largest snowstorm I’ve even been involved with.

In preparation, yesterday I went to the grocery store and of course the beer store!  I got your usual suspects but I also hand-picked a 6-pack of well reputed, tasty craft beers.  Most of these I’ve never had before, one I had to get again because it’s just that good and out for a limited time.  I felt ambitious about this 6 pack and decided I’d grade these brews and write a bit about each as I partake.  After all, I don’t think I’m going anywhere anytime soon. I will follow the rating rules of the BeerAdvocate: Appearance, Smell, Taste, Mouthfeel, and Drinkability. Each category scores out of 5, then averaged for the total.

Be sure to check back after the jump throughout the weekend as I pop these bottles.  I may have all of them tonight, I may spread it out.  Haven’t gotten that far yet.  Frump on for the lineup of culprits.

*update* 2/9/10 5:45p.m.– It just started snowing again and we’re supposed to get 10-20 more inches, so I just opened the last one!
