Introduction to Homebrewing

Here’s a great article I found in Brew Your Own magazine that is an introduction to homebrewing.

Your First Brew

I like to tell people that brewing beer is as easy as making soup. I call it an addictive hobby. If you’re a beer lover, there is nothing like the feeling of drinking and sharing your own tasty brews! It is also fun to fill the entire house with the aroma of hops and malt and listen to the kids complain that it stinks! lol

Stupid Drinking Tricks

I saw this article the other day. Sounds like something that would happen in this country. I guess there are idiots everywhere!

Czech man hooks himself up directly, falls asleep in cooler

Jan 24, 2005 – A Czech man who literally tried to suck down a keg of beer might end up paying a big price. The man who got himself locked inside of a Prague pizzeria to drink beer ended up drunk and asleep when he was arrested by police.

When the restaurant’s staff left, the 32-year-old broke into a cooling box containing a keg, disconnected the pipes leading to the tap, put them in his mouth and drank as much as he could.

The man, drunk and fast asleep, was found by cleaners in the early hours of next morning.

He will now have to pay for the beer he drank and faces up to one year in prison or a fine of $346 for the damage he caused to the cooling box.
