This is the most blatant case of fraudulent advertising since my suit against the film "The NeverEnding Story."

Wrong wrong wrong.

Southern Baptists don't drink where another Southern Baptist can see them.

I took one fishing with me once and he drank all my beer.  Now I take two.

Totally agreed with you there, BizarreMan.

Southern Baptists are closet drinkers. Closet GLBTs too sometimes. But that's saved for another thread.

They need to plan better.

Jews don't recognize Jesus, Protestants don't recognize the Pope, and Southern Baptists don't recognize each other in the liquor store.

Other than the word punters, the article seemed American.

Monotheists recognize one good
Polytheists recognize many gods
Southern Baptists don't recognize each other in the liquor store

I always felt Sam McMurray's character Glen (look what I almost stepped in) was a model for many almost unhinged Southern Baptist males.

is drinking illegal for southern baptists?  are they all supposed to be tee-totallers (or however that word is spelled)?

I don't know about illegal in the church's eye but it's as frowned upon as a Puritan having fun

Do you know why Southern Baptists are against fornication?  Because it could lead to dancing.

When I was younger and dating Southern Baptist women, they seemed so hungup about sex. They enjoyed it but felt SO guilty for having sinned. Kind of sad really.

It's

why don't southern baptists fark standing up?

It reminds them too much of dancing.

-alternately-

If someone walked in on them, they might think they'd been dancing.

I always thought my great aunt was an alcoholic because she always had a beer in her hand and whoever was hosting was responsible for picking up a sixer of Miller High Life for her.  Turned out she was just baptist and couldn't drink with her "friends"

Hysteria.
I heard there is treatment for that.
If it is a medical treatment, then it can't be enjoyable.

I had a Pabst last night. And I enjoyed it. I only mention this as I feel as though some sort of absolution is needed for my sin.

I think this calls for a dunking not just a splashing.

/sometimes a nice light tasting beer is nice.

It's not just Southern Baptists. I had a girlfriend that really liked sex, but she came from a devout Christian family, so she would be wracked with guilt afterwards. It was a perverse turn-on for me, personally.

As in, "haha, you're going to be sooooo disappointed in the morning!"?

"More Dry?"  There's this word 'Drier' that people sometimes use.
 
2013-07-09 12:16:43 PM  
I figured it was Brewfest in Fort Collins.
 
2013-07-09 12:22:25 PM  
30 beers and they call it a festival?  How sad.
The last two I have been to in NoVA put on by Living Social have had 200+ beers.  Delicious insanity.

In my experience, it is best to go to beer festivals like blue hairs go to dinner. Get there early, get your business done and get the hell out. There is never enough beer.

Yep, I go to wine tastings every weekend.  Get there early, or most likely you're going to be left out.

I went to a charity fundraiser that was essentially "drink beer for literacy, " and it was glorious. Brewers from all over the country letting you sample their wares just for the price of a $20 plastic mug you purchased at entry.  All manner of bocks, ales, IPAs, stouts, you name it. The first beer to run out was... Miller Lite.

/Philistines!

True. But I had hoped that exposure to a variety of high-quality beers would persuade people to broaden their palates. Instead they use the product for which they've seen the most tv ads. The more times you see/hear a product mentioned on tv, the better that product is, right?
