Misc News – April 24

Bee Creek Brewery get a large amount of ink in the Brazil Times.

Scotty's and Thr3e Wise Men get ink in the Star.

Zink has signed up a new drink. ResurrectionAnti-Hangover Drink. We can't make this stuff up. "Resurrection is a non-alcohol, no caffeine, herbal-based lightly carbonated beverage made from all-natural ingredients.
Its proprietary formulation helps to prevent hangovers by constricting the formation of free radicals that produce flu like symptoms responsible for headache and nausea." Basically a bunch of Vitamin C, B3, B6, and B12.

lindemans-faro Due to promotion by Merchant du Vin and World Class Beverages and the sweet style of Lindemans Lambics, theirs are probably the biggest selling Framboise, Kriek, Peche, Cassis, and even Pomme in the state. WCB's Beer Spy shows 42 outlets for the 12-ounce bottle of Kriek. In June a Faro will join the lineup. Instead of using fruit, simple candi sugar is used to give a flavor of caramel, brown sugar, or even marmalade.

For Jack Daniels fans, the Green Label is back. Not as sweet and $5 less.

CBS's The Early Show has a segment on GQ's 50 Beers to Try Before You Die. GQ link - CBS link. Watch suited talking heads try Allagash White, Hennepin, and Dales Pale Ale, Rodenbach Grand Cru, Anchor Steam, and Sam Smith Oatmeal Stout in proper glassware. But no, the the Sam Smith brewery is not near Heathrow.

Pianists among you may want to try your hand (well, both hands) at "Good Old German Beer" from 1909 by Harry Von Tilzer and Vincent Bryan. The pdf is here.
