I was wasting some time on YouTube the other day and ran across this video. The video below shows an easy to way go about opening those sometimes pesky corked bottles.
I might be out of the country right now, tasting some yummy Belgian, German, and Czech beer, but our friends from Thank Heaven for Beer are still in the process of raising money for their nanobrewery. If you have not already contributed please consider doing so. You can check out their page here and remember that you can donate as little as $1.
The money raising campaign goes until August 4th so that gives us a little over a month to help Mike and Nate raise the money necessary to start their dream. We as a craft beer community love supporting our local breweries, let’s help support this one as well.
Our friends over at Thank Heaven for Beer have decided to take a leap of faith and open a brewery. Before they can achieve their dreams, they need some help. They have started a Kickstarter page in an attempt to raise the necessary funds to start their nanobrewery. You can check out the page for all of the information and for details on how you can help and what you can get if you do decide to help. They also have a nice video that introduces you to the idea.
If you have the chance, I would really recommend helping out these guys. Mike and Nate are two great people who have some great thoughts to share with the craft beer drinking community. On top of that, they seem like some solid brewers. If you don’t have the financial means to help them, help spread the word. One of the things I really love about the craft beer community is the real sense of community. Everyone seems to be out to help each other. When I started this blog, Mike and Nate were glad to trade links with me even though I wasn’t bringing anything to the table.
Many homebrewers have a dream of owning their own brewery, but few ever make it a reality. Help Mike and Nate achieve their dream. I am sure that you will not regret it. Once again, you can view the video and all of the information about Wilderness Brewing right HERE.
I found this interesting product by way of Monday Night Brewery, so I need to give credit where credit is due, but this is weird. I used to really enjoy a good cigar, and I still will have one now and then but a craft beer cigar sounds a bit odd. The cigar’s site says “The world’s first cigar aromatically seasoned with 100% Centennial Hops. Pair it with your favorite IPA for an amazing experience.”
I don’t know if you have ever had a cigar and a beer, but from my experience they do not go very well together. The last time I had one was the night before I got married almost two years ago. A few of my friends and I decided to class up our cheap hotel and drink beer and smoke cigars in the parking lot. Yeah we were that classy. Anyway, I don’t think a single one of us finished our beers or our cigars. The combo just doesn’t work for me. Hopz is a fun name I guess but I don’t think I will be trying this experiment.
