A Norwegian brewery has removed all stock of one of its beers on Thursday after drinkers complained of its foul-smelling aroma.

Mack brewers, based in Tromsø, produced the “Isbjørn” (“Polar beer”), but a flaw in the manufacturing process created a drink with stomach-churning properties.

It was found that contamination in the bottling system led to a bad odour in many of the beer cans. A build-up of lactic acid in cans led to an unpleasant smell of sulphur and rotten eggs. The contamination was particularly rife when the weather was at its warmest this summer.

Local newspaper Harstad Tidende reported on Thursday that Mack had sold tens of thousands of cans of the "fart-smelling" drink.

From “The International Book of Beer Labels, Mats & Coasters” published by Chartwell books in 1979

ill_01

Bottled products bore paper labels in the seventeenth century. Early drug phials had a label which covered the whole of the glass and early in the following century, patent medicine vendors were using paper labels widely. The first use of labels on alcohol bottles seems to have come in the middle of the eighteenth century, it is known, for example, that a black and white label was being used for port wine in 1756. Up to the 1860s, bottles of wine were sold in cases largely’ to members of the upper and middle classes, and were therefore not distributed widely; around that time, however, concern that a wider public should have access to wine (partly to counteract the widescale consumption of spirits) gave rise to legislation to allow any retailer to sell wine in single bottles, and each bottle had to have a label. Beer labels were probably unknown before the 1840s.

This film is about beer. About how beer has helped to build America and Western civilization in general. About how beer is brewed to exacting standards of sanitation and quality. About how beer has great "food value." About how heavy taxes are levied on beer, building highways and schools to benefit us all. And about how your friendly neighborhood tavern is a clean, well-run establishment where patrons can enjoy sparkling malt beverages. And how your friendly tavern operator supports charitable activities and always obeys the law. And about how all the friendly tavern operators need to watch their steps because there are elements in society who would like to blame sparkling malt beverages for all of society’s ills and bring about another Prohibition, which would deprive us of the right to engage in gracious living. So let’s all raise a toast to the brewing industry, without which we wouldn’t be able to enjoy all the benefits of sparkling malt beverages!

This film may also be a bit of a propaganda piece for the beer industry 😉

Boston Brewery Posters

The only reason for posting these posters is that I love old posters almost as much as I love beer. Other people can get tearful and emotional when they talk about this and that wine, this and that grape and so on while the wine snobs argue about what years are the best. Let them carry on, as long as I can go down to the shop on the corner and get 40 – 50 native brands of beer and nearly as many imported ones, because as I said, I love beer – Ted

Though culminating on January 16, 1920, National Prohibition was not, by any means, a 20th-century invention. Efforts to curb, if not eliminate, the national thirst for alcoholic beverages are nearly as old as America itself. Most of the earliest temperance initiatives were born of religious circles, the salvation of the individual drinker being at the heart of their objective. By the early 1800s, however, a more organized approach had emerged. Temperance societies sprang up in virtually every city in America, and their collective enrolment reached more than 1 million members by 1840. Read the whole story at BeerHistory.com

A Girl After My Own Heart

01645-

Munich has been celebrating what we now know as Oktoberfest since 1810 when Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildurghausen. The festivities started on October 12, 1810 and lasted for one week. The party was such a success that the couple decided to throw the same type of festival annually. Then why is Oktoberfest in September? Eventually the celebration was moved to take advantage of the warmer weather in September, and therefore, in true Bavarian form, longer outdoor drinking hours!

What a disappointment. I was sure the old fart drank nothing but French champagne of the very finest sort. And here “The One” lets the world know that not only does he drink Blatz, but he drinks beer wherever he goes in the world. What utter lack of refinement, what absolute breach of style. And I can’t even manage to find some comfort in the fact that I’m a beer drinker myself. After all I didn’t set out to be the king of bling, nor to reach the very top of visual vulgarity.
