Countdown to Father’s Day – Neon

By , May 31, 2010 in Beer, Rum

Somewhere in the house is Dad’s drinking corner. Maybe he built himself a bar down in the basement. Maybe he has an easy chair parked in the corner of the computer room with a mini-fridge and a cabinet full of liquor and drinking glasses. Maybe he has a particular cushion on the couch in front of the TV that has been perfectly shaped to fit his ass of years of dedicated sitting. Wherever Dad’s drinking corner is, make it official this year by dressing it up with a neon clock or sign from Boozingear.com. With plenty of brands to choose from, no doubt you’ll find dear old dad’s favorite here. Some of my favorites include the classy, white-light Yuengling clock. Or there’s the neon-lit Captain Morgan sculpture. It has a certain understated cheesiness that I find appealing.bar signs capitan morgan neon yuengling

In most cases they will confiscate it when you board the ship and return it to you when the trip is over. Stinks, right? Well, they have to make some money after selling off all their cabins as cheaply as possible so they can sail with a full ship. Booze sales on board are an important part of their revenue. So what about your cruise line? Best to… Read More »

Look Who’s Distilling Now

Taking the idea of extreme beer to the logical next step some craft brewers here in the US are trying their hands at distilling.  Even though alcohol and tax laws seem to have been written, at least in part, to make brewing and distilling mutually exclusive endevours, these brewers are willing to wade through the paperwork to see if they can make booze as well they can brew beer. You might think that I’m refering to Sam Adams’s Utopia but this brew remains all beer, that is to say, no distilling is used to bring it to the astronomical ABV of 25.6%.   Typically, the yeast that creates acohol dies off somewhere between 14 and 18% roughly.  It was only through the most careful monitoring of fermentation, use of a very high gravity (meaning, lots of sugar for the yeast to feast upon), and two proprietary yeast strains that the brewers… Read More »
