So Much Wasted Beer (R.I.P.)

In an advertisement for Koenig Pilsener, this man ponders "das koenig der biere", which loosely translates to "how many Koenig bottle caps can I fit in the trunk of this Porsche?"

Allow me to poor a little beer out for beer. CORRECTION: There's already been a large quantity of beer lost, so I'll drink this beer while I write instead.

In Berlin, German, thieves broke into a store and stole 1200 beers. CORRECTION: The thieves stole 1200 Koenig Pilsener bottles of beer. CORRECTION: The thieves stole 1200 bottle caps and left the bottles of beer behind. Though it was left unreported, the aftermath resulting in the stankiest morning clean up since the ice cream refrigerator compressor disaster of 2009.*

Police have no leads, but by the number of bottle caps removed, they believe more than one person was involved. Marc Baron, a Koenig Brewery spokesman, said "...we will now watch for someone who sends in an unusually high number of caps." What are the "prizes" that someone receives for the bottle caps? Bose speakers and Black & Decker cordless drills.

CORRECTION: The real crime here was committed by the Koenig marketing team with such a sad rewards program.

I expected the first beer posting about the exciting things we have planned with our draught line-up at Wheat & Water. Maybe something about breweries, events, collaborations, but lo and behold, something more entertaining demands attention.

Some people live for beer, but for 110-year old Agnes Fenton, it's her magical elixir. Apparently, Agnes and that Girl in the Moon, who has graced Miller High Life's label for more than a century, have been hiding the secret to eternal life. Perhaps it's just a test of wills because with Miller High Life, you have to drink it fast. As a friend of mine would say, Miller High Life is delicious under 34 degrees, but at 35? It tastes like piss.

In addition to three High Life's a day, she would also drank a shot of whiskey: 110-Year Old Woman drinks Miller High Life Every Day
