Drunken Pranks!

So the other night I had a few to many to drink and passed out by the pool. Fortunately for me my friends are too mature to play any pranks on drunk people. Unfortunately for the site my friends are too mature to play any pranks on drunk people. So I am asking you guys to submit photos or videos of drunken pranks. Everyone loves a good prank!

Two new Mission Street beers to be released

mission-st-hefeweizen

(Paso Robles, CA) – Firestone Walker is contract brewing some new ones for Trader Joe’s: Mission Street Brown Ale and Mission Street Hefeweizen.


Because these are contract beers, FW declined to comment though it is probably safe to say that these will be appearing at some TJ’s locations where Mission St. beers are currently sold.

Despite the stigmas surrounding contract brews, Firestone Walker does a nice job with these. The brewery just earned a second medal (bronze) for Mission Street Pale Ale at the World Beer Cup.

The brew premiered last week with very little fanfare considering this is a new MillerCoors product. The company has yet to introduce any TV or print advertising and typing “Colorado Native Lager” into Google yielded only a handful of relevant results as of this posting.

Did women have anything to do with the popularity of beer?

It may be, ahem, beerly believable for fans of a pint but it seems men have women to thank for their favourite tipple.

Jane Peyton, an author and historian, says the fairer sex are behind the popularity of beer, and have been involved in its production since brewing began between 7,000 and 9,000 years before Christ.

And in Britain, it was women in their role as homemakers who drove the beverage’s popularity as a home brew in the Middle Ages.

Back then, drinking ale was more common than water for most people, even children, because water was often contaminated.
