Drunk squirrel gets locked in a pub!

 

At first sight it looked like the club had been broken into and trashed.

Beer was overflowing from the trays and onto the floor, which was also strewn with money, napkins and straws. Glasses and liqour bottles were knocked off their shelves of Honeybourne Railway Club in the town of Evesham in Worcestershire, England.

“At first I thought we’d been burgled but I realised it was all still locked up and that’s when we saw the squirrel,” club branch secretary Sam Boulter told Worcester News.

“I’d never seen anything like it before, he had ran around the shelves and across the bar.

“There were bottles scattered around, money scattered around and he had obviously run across the bar’s pumps and managed to turn on the Caffrey’s and also managed to ruin some barrels too.

“He must have flung himself on the handle.

 

6 OF THE MOST EXPENSIVE BEERS IN THE WORLD!

It`s easy to get lost in the waste sea of beers these days, everyday there is a new edition from one of the thousands of microbreweries being put on the store shelfs.

Almost every brewery these days issues a special-edition batch that fetches a serious premium. Just how expensive can these brews get? These six wallet busters shows us that beer can be really, really expensive!

1. SAMUEL ADAMS UTOPIA

web-samuel-adams-utopias        Image: samueladams.com

Country of origin: United States

Style: American Strong Ale

ABV: 28%

Price: $150 for 750 ml ($ .20 per ml)

To create Utopias, the brewers at Sam Adams used traditional brewing ingredients including all four types of Noble hops, which add a slightly earthy, herbal taste. The spiciness of the hops really comes alive. In fact, Utopias MMII has even been described by some as almost “fiery” — a fitting description for the strongest beer in history. Beyond the special brand of hops, Utopias features ingredients that truly set it apart from other varieties of beer. Utopias MMII contains caramel and Vienna malts for its rich amber color and several different types of yeast including a variety found in champagne. $150 a bottle and it’s limited to 3000 bottles, which look like copper brew kettles.

2. BREWDOG’S SINK THE BISMARCK!

Country of origin: Scotland

Style: Quadruple IPA

ABV: 41%

Price: $80 for 375 ml ($ .21 per ml)

Sink the Bismarck is a quadruple IPA that contains four times the hops, four times the bitterness and frozen four times to create at a staggering 41% ABV.

This is IPA amplified, the most evocative style of the craft beer resistance with the volume cranked off the scale. Kettle hopped, dry hopped then freeze hopped for a deep fruit, resinous and spicy aroma. A full out attack on your taste-buds ensues as the incredibly smooth liquid delivers  a crescendo of malt, sweet honey, hop oils and a torpedo of hop bitterness which lasts and lasts.

3. SCHORSCHBRÄU’S SCHORSCHBOCK 57 

web-Schorschbräus-Schorschbock-57

Country of origin: Germany

Style: Eisbock

ABV: 57.50%

Price: $275 / 330 ml ($ .83 per ml)

Released in 2011, Schorschbock 57 claims to be the strongest beer in the world. According to Master brewer Georg Tscheuschner, a higher proof beer would violate Germany’s 500-year-old Beer Purity Law. Schorschbräu only made 36 bottles, and each carries a price tag of €200. Tasters say the 115 proof bock is smoky and nutty, with hints of raisins and, obviously, alcohol. The folks at ratebeer.com gave it a paltry 20/100

4. CARLSBERG’S JACOBSEN VINTAGE NO. 1

Country of origin: Denmark

Style: Barley wine

ABV: 10.5%

Price: $400 / 375 ml ($1.06 per ml)

Only 600 bottles have been brewed and in a very short time the expensive brew has become a hot topic among international beer connoisseurs and journalists alike.

Vintage No.1 has, as the only contemporary beer, been matured in J.C. Jacobsen’s original crypt-like cellar from 1847, for six months in new Swedish and new French oak barrels. “The project started as a wild idea and a wish to create a new type of beer that had never been seen before. During the ageing process in new barrels, lots of chemical processes take place. Not all reactions are known but they taste wonderful”, says Jens Eiken, Head Brewer at Jacobsen.

Each bottle of Jacobsen Vintage No. 1 is labelled with an original hand stilled lithographic print made by the Danish artist Frans Kannik. The prints depict fables of Sif. Sif was married to the Nordic god Thor, who was often used by Carls Jacobsen as a symbol of strength.

5. BREWDOG’S THE END OF HISTORY

web-BrewDogs-The-End-of-History           Image: Brewdog.com

Country of origin: Scotland

Style: Blond Belgian Ale

ABV: 55%

Price: $765 / 330 ml ($2.31 per ml)

The End of History: The name derives from the famous work of philosopher Francis Fukuyama, this is to beer what democracy is to history. Fukuyama defined history as the evolution of the political system and traced this through the ages until we got the Western Democratic paradigm. For Fukuyama this was the end point of man’s political evolution and consequently the end of history. The beer is the last high abv beer we are going to brew, the end point of our research into how far the can push the boundaries of extreme brewing, the end of beer.

This blond Belgian ale is infused with nettles from the Scottish Highlands and Fresh juniper berries. Only 12 bottles have been made and each comes with its own certificate and is presented in a stuffed stoat or grey squirrel. The striking packaging was created by a very talented taxidermist and all the animals used were road kill. This release is a limited run of 11 bottles, 7 stoats and 4 grey squirrels. Each ones comes with its own certificate of authenticity.

6. NAIL BREWING`S ANTARTIC NAIL ALE

Country of origin: Australia

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 10%

Price: $1,850 / 500 ml (highest winning bid at auction) ($3.70 per ml)

This limited release beer was created by John Stallwood, the owner of Nail Brewing. Stallwood’s brother-in-law is part of the crew on board a Sea Sheperd ship, and recently visited an iceberg floating in the waters off Antarctica. He collected some of the ice there and flew it back to Tasmania, where it was melted and then passed on to Stallwood to use in the beer. The result was a 30-bottle run of Antarctic Nail Ale. A beer you could feel good about drinking, 100% of the profits from an auction of this refreshing pale ale went to the Sea Shepherds to aid in protecting the world’s marine life.

STRONGEST BEER EVER MADE!

SNAKE VENOM- The worlds strongest beer!

You definitely wouldn’t want to chug this one…or maybe you would? The world’s strongest beer has been named as a British one with an alcohol level of almost 70%! Ouch!

Lab tests have confirmed the super strength of Brewmeister’s Snake Venom, which is made in Scotland, and has an alcohol content of 68 %. It’s the perfect beer to drink if you want to forget about all your problems for a while.

The snake venom even carries a yellow label warning. It is produced using two different yeast strains – ale and champagne – and freeze-concentrated to secure its alcohol content.

Lewis Shand of Brewmeister said: ‘Snake Venom is not like other beers in that we would not recommend drinking a whole bottle in one go. It should be savoured in small measures in a similar way to a fine whisky or brandy.

So this time guys, please dont hold my beer, you can`t handle it! The bad news is that it costs 50£ a bottle.. but then again, how many bottles do you really need? 

How Beer saved the world!

Human beings like us have been around for about 100,000 years. For the first 90,000 we achieved absolutely nothing at all. All accomplishments have been made in the last ten thousand years. So what exactly happened that that put an end to primitivism and kick-started the age of creativity and invention?

The answer is beer.

Beer happened, and it changed the world forever. It sounds almost too bizarre to be true, but many anthropologists and archaeologists now believe that it was a taste for beer, not bread, that got people starting with farming around 9000BC.

Known as the agricultural revolution, it ended hunter-gathering and led to the world’s first ever civilisation – Mesopotamia. The drive to grow more barley in order to make more beer, led to a cascade of inventions. The plough, the wheel, irrigation, mathematics and even writing, all of these world-changing innovations were dreamed up to help with the production and distribution of beer.

As Egypt took over from Mesopotamia, in the Land of the Pharaohs beer was the national currency, a dietary staple and even an important medicine. Put simply, without beer, we wouldn’t have the pyramids. Even in more recent times, beer’s hidden hand has been behind some of history’s most remarkable breakthroughs, from the discovery of germ theory and modern medicine, to the invention of refrigeration, the birth of the factory and the end of child labour. Beer didn’t just change the world, it saved it!

And we love it for that!

But why did Beer save the world?ykwiasbjoaimraqjko6l

 

A new theory

The agricultural revolution was started by Barley for many years experts believe that barley original was to make bread, but scientists have now came up with a new theory that it was originally used for beer.

For food scientist Patrick Hayes (Professor of Food Science, Oregon State University) it is a “open and shut” case and states that ” There is no doubt that Barley was domesticated to make beer”.

Archaeologist Patrick McGovern has found poof of beer in old mugs dating back more than 3000 years before its know than mankind made beer..

So how did they do it? Making beer is a complex science and experts believe that the earlier humans came across Beer my a stroke of pure luck.
10.000 years ago hunters collected Barley as a source of nutrition, during this collection they put the barley in to some sort of ancient collection device, the group of collectors would then probably go out too hunt.
During the hunt it started raining, the rain moisturize the barley and as that happened the barley produced sugars.

For the process to continue the barley needed more water, and this time it started raining for such a long time that the collection device got full of water.
This is when the real magic happens, the wild yeast converts the Barley sugar in to Co2 and alcohol, some days later the hunters returns from the hunting, and they look in to the vessel and discover a bubbely mixture and some of them takes the chance to taste it.

While doing so discovering that this is a brand new taste and from this point on nothing will ever bee the same.

Humans had not touched a drink ever and suddenly life looked a lot more interesting, probably saying “This stuff is awsome, how can we get more of that?”.

Expert Dr.Hayes says “The intoxication effect of the beer surly persuaded people to continue propocading barley.”
And that’s what makes scientists think that beer had a huge impact on evolution,
The thirst of more beer and the need for more Barley, made mankind more creative in ways to sow seeds and gathering the crops, and going out with a stick every time quickly became unproductive.

Witch led to the plow, after a while dealing with larger fields, they would figure out that not all land are arable without water, making it necessary to make smaller rivers and dams.
Suddenly they were sitting ther with large amounts of barley and instead of crying it around you get wheels and carriages for transportation.

The first great invention

Scientists also stretches it so far that they say that Mathematics comes from the creation of Beer, how?

With the evolution the would have been a massive increase of farms and to divide the land they developed early math, after math came bookkeeping and later the written language.
Sounds too good to be true? Well according to Dr. Steven Tinney, expert in ancient text says “The reason for inventing writing, was to record and document the production and distribution of commodities like beer.”

By 3000 BC evolution was in full flow all thanks to beer, but that was just the beginning.

Over 200 million Gallons of Beer

Too be more specific 231.414.717 gallons (875.999.985 liters) of Beer, was what it costed to build the Pyramid of Giza. The pyramid you say? Yes, indeed!
In ancient Egypt the normal pay for a pyramid worker was 1 gallons of beer a day.  But why have beer as a days pay? The beer was a vital source of nutrition
“Even school boys would get up in the morning and have a dish of beer” says Professor of Egyptology Dr. Betsy Bryan.
The beer of the time was very low on alcohol but was full of vitamins and minerals making the workers strong, healthy and productive.

So, by now your going to think that the next thing on the list beer did was to cure the sick, well it did. Beer was used to treat almost every ind of illnes, they used it to treat sore troth and they used the some of the remains of the beer to make an anal fumigant too treat bowl deceases.

Beer is not longer used as medicine but it started the revolution of medicine 3000 years before its time.

Japan sendt whiskey to the international spacestation!

The booze has arrived the international spacestation! Six botles, and six astronauts, coincidence?? I think not! 

space-whisky-composite

The six astronauts won’t be drinking it, It’s all for science. (Yeah sure.. would’nt you at least taste it, after ceveral months in space)

The supply ship contains nearly 10,000 pounds of cargo, including the six whiskey botles. Suntory Global Innovation Center in Tokyo wants to see if alcoholic beverages mellow the same in space as they do on Earth. 

The station’s huge robotic arm, operated by a Japanese astronaut, grabbed onto the supply craft launched Wednesday by his homeland. Flight controllers helped anchor it down.

The samples will be used for experiments and will spend at least a year in space before being returned to Japan. An identical set of samples will be stored on the ground in Japan.

Japan also sent up 12 mice aboard the Kounotori vessel, what kind of party is this??
