• Old Man Murphy

    Old man Murphy had worked down at the brewery for years, but one day , he just wasn’t paying attention and he tripped on the walkway and fell over into the beer vat and drowned. The foreman thought it should be his job to inform the widow Murphy of her old man’s death. He showed up at the front door and rang the bell. When she came to the door, he said, “I’m sorry to tell you, but poor old Murphy passed away at work today when he fell into the vat and drowned.” She wept and covered her face with her apron and after a time, between sobs, she…

  • Three Little Pigs

    A pig walks into the bar and asks for a pitcher of beer. He drank it all then asked the bartender where the bathroom is. Bartender replies “down the hall and to the left”. Another pig walks into the bar and orders 2 pitchers of beer. He finishes them off and then asks where the bathroom is. The bartender replies “down the hall and to the left”. Another pig walks into the bar and orders 3 pitchers of beer. Finishing them off he was just going to stand up when the bartender asks him “well aren’t you going to ask where the bathroom is?” The pig replies ” no, i…

  • Cuckoo Clock

    At about 3AM, I was drunk as a skunk. I came home just in time to hear the cuckoo clock cuckoo three times. Quickly coming up with a plan, I cuckooed nine more times, hoping my wife would think it was midnight. I was very proud of myself. The next day, my wife asked what time I got home, and I replied, “Midnight, just like I said.” She said that was good, and for some reason she said we needed a new cuckoo clock. When I asked why, she answered, “Last night when it cuckooed midnight, it cuckooed three times, said ‘Shit!,’ cuckooed four more times, farted, cuckooed three times,…

    Brew Polls Showcase

    We never really get tired of asking questions. It the easiest way to learn. What we try to do with our polls is put forth a snarky way of getting responses to some of the current issues in the massive brewniverse. The polls are unscientific (we were liberal arts majors for gosh sakes). They will range in answers from very astute to 100% sarcasm. They may resemble current events (All characters appearing in these works are fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living or dead, is purely coincidental.) and most polls will have the comments left open for you to voice your own opinion (just in case we weren’t opinionated…

    There has to be a Reason

    {xtypo_dropcap}A{/xtypo_dropcap}h, just another day in the Brewniverse. Beer weeks are in full swing (San Francisco this coming week, London the following week), festivals are in planning, one-offs are being brewed, sun shining, birds chirping…you get the idea.  It seems though, that all is not well in certain parts of the Brewniverse. The brewing Death Star, AB/Inbev, owner of multiple macro brands and now the owner of a growing list of “craft” brewers, fired a volley across the entire craft brewing galaxy when it aired a rather pointed commercial during the most recent Superbowl. The commercial, according to a company spokesman, was meant to paint their Budweiser brand as a brand…

    It’s in the Water

    {xtypo_dropcap}W{/xtypo_dropcap}ater, without it life as we know it would not have come to be. As important as water is to life, it is way more important to the brewing of beer (yes, that’s a joke). A human can go without water for several days, but let’s see someone brew beer without it.  After a lively Twitter discussion on water, we wanted to try and find out what the brewing community’s thoughs might be. This is a completely unscientific poll (besides, I drank my test subject) so have at it. I will leave the comment open if you would like to add anything (moderated, so it will not be immediate). How…

    It Keeps Me Warm

    As fall rounds the corner into winter for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it is time to break out the larger coats, larger gloves and of course the larger beers.

  • It’s a Waiting Game

    Foothills Sexual Chocolate, Three Floyds Dark Lord and Cigar City’s Hunahpu’s Day. These are just a few of what has grown to be a regular occasion within the world of craft beer. The explosion of craft beer coupled with the limitations of particular breweries, it is now common to see massive lines or creative schemes employed to handle the demand for these small batch collectible beers. We’d like to find out what the community is willing to accept in order to get these cherished brews.  NOTE: Mouse (fingermove) over each item to vote. Voting is still open. {minipolls use_percent=”1″ id=”waitinggame” title=”I’m willing to wait…”  } No more than 1 hour||1 to 3 hours||3 to 6…
