Free Beer for Doing Nothing?

Now, here’s an idea that we should see here.

Amstel Pause wanted people to have a three minute break. And to enjoy a cool beer  afterwards.  Over a period of 16 days, a total of 1,344 beers given to people who do nothing.  It added up to 4,032 minutes of break or more than 67 hours of rest for different people.

Stand still for 3 minutes without reading, answering a phone or otherwise fidgeting around, and you get a free beer.

What Are You Brewing This Winter

Bottom fermenting yeast

Bottom fermenting yeast

The cold temperatures outside means that your basement may be cooling down too, affording an opportunity to make a homebrew that likes a cooler fermentation temp.  Have you tried making a lager, kolsch or california common?  Do you have any tips for making these styles of beer?  Post your ideas and comments here.

Brew Club Meeting

The Boreal Brewers will meet Monday, December 8th at 6:30 PM, in the KAXE Board Room.  This is our Christmas meeting.  All members and anyone considering joining are welcome.  Bringing beer or food is not a requirement, just a nicety.  You are welcome if you just show up.

  1. We’re meeting a little later to make it easier to get potluck food together on a weeknight
  2. We’ll conduct a little club business, including membership dues coming up in January
  3. Email me no later than the 7th if you need a membership card
  4. We’ll discuss the possibility of an upcoming club brew at Fulton Brewing in Minneapolis
  5. Steve will bring his new beer filtering system and describe the pitfalls and opportunities.  And share some filtered beer.  The thing will also double as a ‘Randalizer,” which we’ll try out at the next meeting.
  6. And, we’ll eat, sip and discuss beer, brewing and what the club will get involved with next

Hope to see you there!
