And I can’t find anything about this but wouldn’t it be sweet if there were some casks made out of some specific set of hard minerals? Like, I’m making a stout and want some more of whatever the fuck it is to give it body and so I age it with some bourbon barrel chips in this stone cask.
Collaborations, nature, HISTORY! Things I love. And once again proving the superiority of all things AVL, a bottle shop in Cinci is naming themselves after one of its most prominent citizens. Not Ochocinco…William Howard Taft. (That’s his full name right? Whatever.)
This man was POTUS and on the SCOTUS! The only man to ever do that! POTUS SCOTUS! And all these fools could do was make fun of him for being too fat to get out of the tub? POTUS SCOTUS!
The Lodge at Woodloch has created another way for us all to enjoy beer, bathe in it. The spa at the Lodge offers treatments that are “infused with Dogfish Head’s Midas Touch, a sweet-yet-dry beer. The body exfoliation using hops, barley and honey, followed by a beer bath and massage, starts at $250; a 50-minute pedicure beer foot bath is priced at $95. Occasionally, the spa offers a 25-minute hair beer rinse at $40.” Its seems like Dogfish Head is the beer of choice for spa days.
The spa director had this to say, “Unknown to many, beer has some curative effects.” I don’t know who she’s kidding but everybody knows beer has curative effects. That’s why we do it!
“Icelandic brewer Steðji brewery and whaling company Hvalur teamed up to release the beer to coincide with a mid-winter festival in honor of the Norse god Thor.” In case that quote was unclear, they’re making a beer with whale meat. What type of whale is unspecified everywhere I’ve looked.
It is a little disconcerting though, that the list requires there to be “wide draft distribution” of beers on the list but still has Hill Farmstead and Mikkeller and Three Floyds on there. Not sure wide distribution would apply to anything they do. Maybe that’s how they explain away giving WNC the cold shoulder. Vote at the link below…
