God, it's 120 odd years and 120 even years; so it's 240 total years.  GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

...At which point, the Germans started laughing because even in the 1700s, American beer sucked.

Sorry you guys have been in a coma for the past 10 years and have missed the ongoing beer renaissance in America.

Here's hoping your wives didn't marry someone else while you were out, and that your legs still work.

Joke is on you! I was horribly lonely before the huge growth in micros.

BUDWEISER Hints That Black People Don't Eat QUINOA In New RACIST COMMERCIAL

However, BJ might be biased and talks a lot about how McDonald's new Clubhouse Sandwich is DEEEEELicious!

..so one might think twice about his relationship with beer.

The good old Christmas Day massacre. Who would breach one of the holiest days of Christianity and break traditions that were 1700 years old at the time? Probably some atheist or islamic Al-Qeida like scumbags most likely, because they had no morals to defile such a holy day.

Well, the stakes were incredibly high. Washington had been losing battle after battle. This is what turned it around.

Is that the same guy that threw a bunch of dollars into the Potomac?

Or the eco-friendly one who only had to remove a cherry tree to make space for second generation forestry?

Didn't they call a truce and kick a football around?

As a native Hessian i'll just leave this here: In Hesse, our "national" drink is Apfelwein (Ebbelwoi, Äppler, Stöffsche, belongs to the region = cider) or wine. Yes, there are some nice breweries here, but hessian beer isn't that interesting. I prefer bavarian Weisse or the northern brews like Jever or Flensburger ... more hops.

Deep Contact: Didn't the Hessians move to Canada for some Molson's?


Maybe the Hessians then were much more pervert that i am now...

A selection of headlines we are following:

The Lord North Government refuses to comment on the terrorism in the Colonies saying that it is just a kurfluffle caused by Radicals, Liberals and Whig agitators and will blow over quickly.

King George chats with small shrubbery on Royal Visitation to Orangerie in Hempshire.

Speaking of hemp, Virginia expects a bumper hemp crop. Planters George Washington and Thomas Jefferson say hemp is America's future.

Benjamin Franklin writes in praise of Older Women. Possibly whilst smoking hemp rope

Franklin's bastard son, William, noted for holding the kite which proved that lightning is electricity in the air, elected Governor of Pennsylvania. Closes bridges and toll roads to voters who stood up against him.
"Fat Tory Bastard!" comments politicial opponents, trouble-makers and Whigs.

Did Betsy Ross steal the flag design from the arms of a well-known Royal House? You be the judge!

Why the price of tea always goes up before the holy days

Should French Canadians be driven into the sea and drowned? Fair and balanced reporting from the Fox Brothers

Duchess of Devonshire is a Liberal Harlot says Dissenting Hedge Preacher from stump

Dissenter stumped as to why he may have been thrown into briar by Liberal hooligans*

*This word is unknown. Editor suppects it is an anacronism or the name of some Irish clan of ill-repute. However, it will no doubt soon be all the rage in London like the word "quiz", another Irish offense against the English Language and good sense

I know my history like I was there. Which is to say it is half lies and rumours with a good dose of satire and nonsense.

There's nothing like misremembering historical events. It really brings (some form) of history to life.

Don't mess with Washington...
