Here’s a hilarious video from Down Under. Sh!t Beer Geeks Say is a video produced by the folks putting on Good Beer Week, an Australian beer week centered around Melbourne and Victoria, and also the Bridge Road Brewers. I especially love that Vinnie’s “Lupulin Threshold Shift” made it into the list of phrases used in the video.
In what has to be one of the most unusual marketing efforts by a large brewer, Olympia Beer has offered to pay $1 million dollars — in increments of $25,000 a year for the next four decades — to anyone who can find conclusive evidence of a live Bigfoot. The contest is the brainchild of Evan and Daren Metropoulos, who recently bought Pabst Brewing Co., which also owns the Olympia brand.
No that’s not a typo. Today’s Friday frivolity is a nice mix of drinking and math. Remember people, don’t try to figure out the quadratic formula while operating heavy machinery. Once you start deriving, it’s hard to stop. I assume this will resonate with the illiterate and math-challenged among the neo-prohibitionists.
It’s now being widely reported, including by Business Insider, that at the Masters at Augusta National earlier today golfer Tiger Woods on the third hole drove his ball into a cup of beer held by someone along the fairway watching the golf tournament. Apparently there’s no picture or video because inexplicably one of golf’s most famous events is not being televised.
I came across this cartoon by Bill Coleman for his strip Salty Dog beer comics that he apparently did in 2007, presumably shortly after Michael passed away, as tribute, and so I saved it to run on Michael’s birthday today. Enjoy.
