This fabulous barley wine is a malty, velvety smooth and full bodied beer with a rich dark ruby colour. Old Nick is overflowing with sumptuous flavours of fruit and hops, with a complex bitterness on the finish.

Texas beer sales blocked by….Texas beer distributor?
Around twenty minutes later after going to sleep I started to get an excruciating pain in my lower abdomen that felt like broken glass chips were slicing up the inside of my gut. Nothing seemed to help alleviate my pain and after an hour or so I finally sat on the toilet and managed to explosively relieve myself but the pain didn’t subside. I ended up staying on the toilet crying in pain half the night before I somehow collapsed from exhaustion. It would be another full day before I had normal bowel movements again.
The went back to “One-Eyed Wangs” the day after that and told Mr. Wang about the beer. Mr. Wang shrugged and then said “This time you got unlucky can!”.
It’s Chris Firey’s job to talk to the clueless.
For the core Bud family — in which Bud Light is growing while Bud and Bud Select are declining — brewery execs laid out a differentiated marketing positions by brand. Bud Light remains about good times; new Bud advertising emphasizes taste; and Bud Select is a trade-up brand.
One flavor, three marketing campaigns!
How to avoid selling beer at the ball park.
Stalking the endangered German beer styles.
But drinking a Kölsch is more than just drinking a beer: it’s like drinking an entire culture.
By German law, only beers brewed in Cologne may be called Kölsch, and they must be served in the tall, cylindrical glasses called stange. The Kölsch waiter, known as a Köbes, is almost always clad in blue and is universally known for a sharp tongue. (Request a glass of water instead of beer and your Köbes will probably ask if he should bring soap and a towel, too.)
In Praise of Budweiser.
…bollocks to your “microbreweries”. These so-called “craft brewers” are a newfangled modern invention and have very little to do with the traditions of the brewing industry. We have no real way of knowing what beer tasted like in Ye Olden Days Of Bavaria Etc, but it was probably horrible. Beer as it is drunk today is a product of the Industrial Revolution; it was arguably the first recognisably modern industry. It is not an artisanal product and up until very recently could not be produced in small batches at all with any acceptable consistency of quality. “Microbrews” are in general wildly overpriced – some of them are quite nice because they use extremely expensive ingredients, but they are not intrinsically better than industrially produced beers. There are good and bad industrially produced beers – I am only arguing here that Budweiser is one of the good ones, because it has an excellent pedigree, it is 100% natural, the recipe has never been altered and it has never compromised on the quality of ingredients.
