Initially words failed Me…”Miller Lite launches beer can with TV antenna”
I wasn’t really sure how to respond to this “beer innovation”
Not since the “Turn your beer bottle into glassware” (birthed by the Jelly glass movement of the 60’s of course) has such out of the box thinking been launched on an unsuspecting populace. My question is, do I have to drink the beer to use it?
Actually its not just any can, and you have to sign up to win this little gem so you can proudly display it, along with your other major awards, for all your friends to see.

Mozart’s Favorite Beer, Resurrected in Denver

Mozart’s Favorite Summer Beer, Lost for 100 Years, Is Resurrected in Denver
Via Vinepair
I’m told fans of historic beer styles have been waiting a long time for the return of Horner Bier. Sure, why not, I’m always ready to try something new and this has a great back story.
Seedstock Brewery has resuscitated Horner Bier, which can now join the ranks of German styles like Merseburger, Broyhan, and Berliner Braunbier. Andreas Krennmair, author of a book on how to brew forgotten Old World beer styles, says he hasn’t yet seen a commercial version of Horner beer. “It seems to be a beer style that sounds interesting and unusual, but at the same time is probably too strange for brewers to even attempt to brew it,” Krennmair says.
Really? Has he seen the American Craft Beer market? Voodoo Donut? Oyster Stout? Beard Beer? Need I go on? If this is too strange I’ve got to try it.

Time To Raid The Beer Collection!

As the World Shelters in Place, Rare Beer Lovers Raid Their Collections
By EVAN RAIL
The other night, I did something unusual: I opened a 2009 bottle of 3 Fonteinen Oude Geuze.
The weird part wasn’t that I chose a spontaneously fermented beer from Belgium: Although I do mostly consume Czech lagers, I happily drink most styles. But that particular beer from my own cellar was one that dated from before the 2009 disaster that shuttered one of Belgium’s favorite lambic breweries for several years. It was not just from Belgium. It was not just sour. It was not just old. It was a truly rare bottle from a different era, one of a very limited number that remain anywhere, and a real collector’s item among connoisseurs.

Then there’s our REALLY secret ingredient

The maker of saké brand Dassai, Asahi Shuzo Co., has asked the Japan Century Symphony Orchestra to compose a piece of music that will be played in the brewery during the fermentation and maturation processes. The song, to be written by composer Kaoru Wada following a visit to the brewery, will be called Dassai-Megaki, and is expected to be completed by this summer.
