Before you gets your hopes up, the Canadian humor site The Toque may be funny but not authoritative. Still you have to love this idea:
People will generally buy bottled beer out of convenience, but there is nothing quite as satisfying as the sweet nectar grown from your very own beer garden.
It even includes handy tips:
– Plant your beer garden in a secure place, away from curious teenagers or alcoholic neighbors.
– Long-neck bottles are easier to pull out of the ground than stubbies.
– Don’t drink your beer before its time. Green beer is often sour or tart, and you’ll probably have to chase it down with a shot of whiskey.
– Avoid over-planting. Too many beers in one garden will result in a watery, low-alcohol “lite” beer.
The story is good to the last drop.
