Heineken, schmeineken…

ThePabstBlueReuben-225x300This is what you get when you dip a reuben sandwich in PBR beer batter and fry it up:

The Pabst Blue Reuben

I was super drunk out in Vegas at the time and responded by saying something along the lines of “What if I took an entire Reuben sandwich, dipped it in Pabst beer batter and deep fried it? It could be called the Pabst Blue Reuben!”

They were into it an apparently the people over at Pabst were as well so they have me the go ahead and here it is — The Pabst Blue Reuben!

just based on the name alone, the Pabst Blue Reuben is pretty awesome, but taste-wise it was even better! I’ve yet to find a single food that beer batter and a quick dip in some 375° oil can’t improve upon.

Awesomeness

Found this on the book of faces…an 81-year-old not only finished a beer mile with a not-too-bad time, but she beat her daughter and son-in-law while she was at it:

This 81-Year-Old Grandma Is Better at Drinking and Running Than You Are

If you’ve ever subjected your body to a beer mile race — easily one of the world’s ultimate tests of physical and emotional endurance — you might want to contact Elvira Montes for some pointers. The 81-year-old grandmother of three was, not only the oldest person to finish during the 2015 FloTrack Beer Mile World Championships in Austin, Texas on Tuesday night, but also outran her daughter and son-in-law, according to a report byRunner’s World. Needless to say, she’s a freaking hero.

[…]

While the beer mile world champions crossed the finish line in a cloud of sweat and suds faster than you can pour a beer and drink it, Montes finished the race with a damn impressive time of just 20 minutes and 24 seconds — 50 seconds faster than her 47-year-old daughter. She admittedly doesn’t even like beer, but pounded four bottles of KCCO Gold Lager from Resignation Brewery, according to the report.

The race marked Montes’ second beer run, having participated in the same event last year. Next year, she plans to break 20 minutes and said she can improve by drinking her beer faster.

I’ve been logging the beers I’ve had here since 2008 (IIRC), and as I write this, the count stands at 1967.  Five more, and it’s at my birth year. Another 28 after that will bring it to an even 2000.

SJWs’ Latest Windmill: Craft Beers With Suggestive Names

Social Attention Whores Have New Made-Up Concern to Complain About: Craft Beers With Sexually-Suggestive Names

Hey Slate, Bullying Microbreweries Won’t End Misogyny

The writers at Slate should get off their high horses and just drink a beer already.

In a recent article, William Gordon wails about the “gross puns and derogatory labels” on craft beers. And maybe he’s right—some microbrews probably should clean up their act.

But maybe Slate should also apply the Left’s traditional logic: if you don’t like a misogynistic beer, don’t have one. After all, the only person worse than the dude who brings “Raging Bitch IPA” to the party is the culture warrior who whines about it.

Hops…phytoestrogenic?  Say it ain’t so!

Your favorite beer might be giving you man boobs

It might seem manly to drink beer, but a chemical found in hops might be the cause of some very feminine attributes.

Hops, which gives beer its flavor, are female flowers of the hop plant and contain high levels of phytoestrogen—a plant estrogen.

According to research conducted by acclaimed herbalist and author Stephen Harrod Buhner, hops can also contribute to breast development in men and to a condition called “brewer’s droop”—or impotence brought on by heavy drinking.

A beer a day is 110-year-old Nebraska man’s secret to a long life

A can of beer every day is Mark Behrends’ secret to a long life.

The Nebraska City man turned 110 years old on May 16, making him Nebraska’s oldest living person and possibly the oldest man living in the United States.

“He always told everybody the reason he has lived so long is drinking one can of beer, every day at 3 p.m.,” said his daughter Lois Bassinger of Nebraska City. “He always joked that that was his medicine since he takes very little medicine.”

Omagh’s ‘Shawshank Husband’ Dug Tunnel From Bedroom To Pub Over 15 Years

Part The Shawshank Redemption, part The Great Escape:

Omagh’s ‘Shawshank Husband’ Dug Tunnel From Bedroom To Pub Over 15 Years

“The wife has a bad snore on her and after watching the Shawshank Redemption on RTE one night in 1994, I decided to do something about it so I waited til she was in a deep sleep and then set about digging a hole under the bed in the direction of the pub. I used all manner of tools from spoons to a heavy duty tunnel boring machine I managed to sneak down there when she was at the shops. It wasn’t until 2009 that I hit the jackpot and came up through the women’s toilet mop and bucket room.”

Total distance: about 800′.
