This and That

Here are some interesting links from around the web. They are mostly alcohol related but I couldn’t resist this story about giant jellyfish.

Giant Jellyfish Washed Ashore

My favorite part of the article is that the Japanese are trying to make consumable products out of these creatures, including ice cream.

This past weekend there was a brewers festival in Manchester, New Hampshire. It was the first year and it sounds like a lot of fun.

Carla Champion, The Beer Babe, talked at a seminar entitled, ” I Wished My Girlfriend Liked Beer.” The subject of women and beer seems to have become a required element of any beer festival. As someone who has been drinking beer since I was eleven, on some level I don’t get it. I think more women probably like beer than is commonly known. It is more an advertising and marketing issue.

Roger Protz, beer-pages.com, has an interesting post about the Scottish brewer, Brewdog. Apparently they are in an issue of a newspaper, appearing  lewd and drunk. He thinks this is bad for the image of brewing.

The final item is also from Scotland. The Scottish drinks company, Whyte and Mackay is drilling in Antarctica to recover 100 year old Scotch. The liquor was left there by explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton. It is not clear whether they plan to drink it or not, but they do plan to see if it would be viable to start distilling it again.  Didn’t McKinlay and Co., the original distillers keep records?

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually
    something that I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    excellent issues altogether, you just gained a new reader.
    What might you recommend in regards to your submit that you simply made some days in
    the past? Any positive?
