The drum beat grows louder? Is 21 a bust when it comes to drinking? Lawmakers in seven states are actively considering legislation that would lower the legal drinking age. State pols in Kentucky, Wisconsin and South Carolina have introduced legislation that would lower the drinking age only for military personnel, while Missouri, South Dakota, Vermont and Minnesota are considering more expansive measures that would lower the drinking age for the general population.

American food and drink holidays. Quite a list. The next alcohol one isn’t until April 19th. National Amaretto Day.

Alright, we gotta do something. This global warming thing ain’t funny no more: The price of beer is likely to rise in coming decades because climate change will hamper the production of a key grain needed for the brew.

Good as it gets this side of heaven? The Hercules Beer Case.

I’m actually not a big fan of the oil-can stuff, and this assortment looks pretty thick. Still, it’s a great lure.

Drinking joke:

An Irishman’s been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally says that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He tries to stand one more time, same result. So he decides to crawl the 4 blocks to his home and when he arrives at the door he stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door into his bedroom. When he reaches his bed he tries one more time to stand up. He manages to pull himself upright but he quickly falls right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow. He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting at him.

“So, you’ve been out drinking again!!”

“What makes you say that?” He asks as he puts on an innocent look.

“The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again.”
