I got the following in the email today:

Police are warning all men who frequent clubs, parties & local pubs to be alert and stay cautious when offered a drink by any woman. Many females use a date-rape-drug on the market called ' Beer' . The drug is found in liquid form and is available anywhere. It comes in bottles, cans, or from taps and in large kegs.

Beer is used by female sexual predators at parties and bars to persuade their male victims to go home and sleep with them.
A woman needs only to get a guy to consume a few units of Beer and then simply ask him home for no-strings-attached sex.

Men are rendered helpless against this approach. After several Beers , men will often succumb to the desires to sleep with horrific looking women to whom they would never normally be attracted. After drinking Beer , men often awaken with only hazy memories of exactly what happened to them the night before, often with just a vague feeling that 'something bad' occurred.

At other times these unfortunate men are swindled out of their life's savings, in a familiar scam known as 'a relationship'. In extreme cases, the female may even be shrewd enough to entrap the unsuspecting male into a longer-term form of servitude and punishment referred to as 'marriage'. Men are much more susceptible to this scam after Beer is administered and sex is offered by the predatory females.

If you fall victim to this ' Beer' scam and the women administering it, there are male support groups where you can discuss the details of your shocking encounter with similarly victimized men. For the support group nearest you, just look up 'Golf Courses' in the phone book.

You have been warned!!!

My 19yo nephew just bought himself an '80 TA and brought it out for the first time today. Henceforth he shall forever be known as Bandit.

timujin: ClavellBCMI: Heineken or death!

/nods towards Drew, gets ready to had to the fridge for another Heineken

blech, Heine tastes like it came out of one.

/meh, whatever, more for you

Heineken tastes too skunk for me. However, Heineken Light is very good. Don't know what they did differently, but it works.

Barry McCokiner: I know it's hardly a micro brew anymore but I enjoy Shiner products

If you enjoy it, who cares if it isn't a microbrew anymore? I doubt anyone worth listening to would complain that a business that makes a product they like is successful.

As for Michelob, it'll come back into fashion in a few years. Lone Star is starting to replace PBR as the hipster beer of choice, so once Lone Star's turn is up, Michelob will slap on the old bottles and slide right back in.

My favorite beers don't even own a TV.

Drew actually does not care that much for Heineken, it is a meme that was assigned to him that is difficult to shake. His collaboration with Mr Wheaton and Stone Brewing to make Woot stout should say as much.

But I', not here to white night for Mr. Curtis.

My point to the article, or at least the headline is that american drinking public's taste has matured. and while the craft beer movement has exploded in recent years, a great deal of the drinkng public still does not have as ready access to  real, in the sense of small batch indie operator produced craft beer.

the fact that these people are choosing to drink the "Crafty" beers from the macor producers is actually a very good thing. at the very least, they provide a kind of .. training wheels  kind of beer  for the folks wanting to expand their tastes,

how many of you beer snobs out there find themselves at some kind of chain resturant and order the sam adams or the shock top or blue moon because it beats the alternative?

that's the target audience
