The Next PBR: 22 Old Beers Ready for a Rebrand

Actually drinking Pinner for the first time right now. I'm usually not a fan of low alcohol or session IPAs, but I'm really enjoying it. I had just finished a Ballast Point Sculpin and was expecting this to be very bland in comparison, but it has a lot of flavor.

Yes, that happens to me sometimes too. I never get a screenshot because I don't know when it's going to happen. It just happened with a Starbucks ad.

Bottle to growler

Great gift that is going to get a ton of use. It won't be long before my wife regrets getting it for me.

I'm going to run to the store tomorrow and pick up a test 6 pack. I'll put the growler in the fridge tonight so both are cold and give it a try. It's supposed to be a warm sunny day tomorrow, so I can't imagine a half gallon of beer will last very long. If it doesn't work out, I'll try to siphon it next time.

Bottle to growler

Just got a very cool looking stainless steel "mini keg" growler for Father's Day. I belong to a private park where I drink plenty of beer, but glass isn't allowed.

So, here's my possibly dumb question. If I can't get somewhere to have my growler filled, would it be possible to transfer bottled beer into the growler? It would be consumed within a couple of hours. I know there would be some carbonation loss, but how much?

I always have a decent selection of canned beer at home, so this is more out of curiosity than necessity.

Porters & Stouts - Their Place in the Craft Beer Pantheon

I've been noticing more and more stouts and/or porters on tap lately. I'm very happy for this as I'm not super familiar with this style.

I've always enjoyed Guinness in all of its variations. Brooklyn black chocolate stout is one of my favorite after dinner drinks and Samuel smith oatmeal has made more than one appearance at breakfast. Other than those, I haven't had much exposure to stouts/porters until recently. Just the other day I had what was described as a Belgian porter from finback brewery. I never knew this style existed. Almost tasted like a tripel with some coffee/ chocolate notes.

Verizon ad taking up whole screen. Got it twice in the last ten minutes. Need to back out as there's no way to close it.

This staples ad is popping up every time I click on anything on my iPhone. Makes it impossible to use the site.

Holy shit! Make it stop! As I access the site on my phone 90% of the time, I'm gone until it's fixed.

How much do you tip on Fresh Direct deliveries?

Because a pizza is about $15 and my FD orders are at least $300. If I tipped 20% I'd be giving them $60.

I usually tip about $5 on food delivery and $10 on FD.

No, the delivery fee rightfully goes to the company. The drivers aren't independent contractors. They get paid by the company to make deliveries.

Desperate Budweiser add screams "we are cheap beer"

Really? I could have sworn that when I was in France and Greece it just said Bud on the bottle. Also, I got this from Time magazine.

"While there are a exceptions, in much of Europe Budejovicky Budvar—the word Budejovicky is the equivalent of Budweiser, or German for “from Budweis” in the Czech language—has the rights to the name Budweiser, forcing Anheuser-Busch InBev to use the name Bud."

Outside of the UK, (I'm sure there are other exceptions) it's known just as Bud in Europe, not Budweiser.

Geoffrey Zakarian on McDonalds

Geoffrey Zakarian is a hipster? That would probably be the last word I would use to describe him.

Rough news week for Papa Johns

Every once in a while, maybe once a year or so I get in the mood for a Pizza Hut meat lovers pizza. I never order Pizza Hut when I want actual pizza, just like I don't get a Big Mac when I want an actual burger. It's a completely different substance.

Elysian Brewing Is About to Sell its Soul to Anheuser-Busch

The only craft brewery I can think of that I've experienced before and after being taken over by AB/InBev is goose island. I haven't noticed a decline in quality. So I have no issue with small breweries "selling their soul". Especially if this leads to their beers being easier to find.
