Here’s news making the rounds in the beer world:
-Swiss police confiscated 1,000 bottles of fake Heineken. The beer is called Keineken. I have no idea why the folks at Heineken are so concerned about infringement.
-A Louisiana woman was arrested after being accused of stealing a case of Miller Lite from a grocery store by hiding the beer between her legs and waddling out of the store.
-The city of Amsterdam has vowed to keep its beer bikes – oversized bicycle-trailer type things where up to 10 people sit around a central bar while someone pedals through the city’s streets — despite a recent string of accidents.
-The three Texas boaters stranded for a week recently in the Gulf of Mexico used beer to help them survive. Yes! I love it when beer comes to the rescue!
-Here’s a picture of a German model showing off the official beer mug for Germany’s 176th Oktoberfest celebration. I’m showing this picture strictly for my readers to see the mug. Really, I am.
