It's party season and a good time to start thinking about topping last year's lame office party. It may have been a few years and maybe you have forgotten some critical lessons from college. Thankfully, there is a science
to keg beer. Think it all through and make some plans
. You could also hide the vodka and tonic for you and your close buds and be a dick
to everyone else. Have fun!

! "[S]cientists have proven
that 'beer goggles
' are real — other people really do look more attractive to us if we have been drinking. Surprisingly, the beer
goggles effect was not limited to just the opposite sex among the ostensibly straight volunteers recruited for the study — they also rated people from their own sex as more attractive."

'Is there any chance there would be some Brain Death left?'
Brain Death was the creation of two homebrewers and certified beer judges, both brewers of whom are highly respected in their hobby. (For reasons that will become apparent, they wish to remain anonymous.) A potent barleywine (OG 1,100), Brain Death contained an extra ingredient that one of the euphemistically calls "special hops".

If you who hear a symphony each time you open a beer, here's
a little Friday fun.
(Check out the 'Behind the Scenes' video too.)
NB: Flash and music.

Michael Jackson the Beer Hunter
(not the other one) passed away
this morning. Beer fans remember the man
and his impact on the world of beer. Among other things, he is responsible for establishing the definition of worldwide beer styles
. He is also credited with reviving the Belgian beer industry and inspiring the U.S. microbrewing renaissance. I'll raise a glass of ale to him tonight because he was a friend and inspiration.

With a typically punny Hollywood Reporter headline, the news is out that Anheuser-Busch's new video site with Original Content (launched during the Super Bowl, naturally) is not nearly as popular as expected. The promoters blame the registration/age-verification requirement for discouraging users (noted here
earlier today), but 21 State Attorneys General say it's not discouraging enough
. But is the content any good?
Here are a couple reviews
No, I didn't link or even mention the site's obvious address. I don't want anybody to think I actually encourage stuff like this ;)

The Beer Launcher.
From the starry eyed minds of the students of Duke University comes the next great innovation in humankind's continued struggle to stay sedentary.

is a Google Maps and happy-hour mashup. It includes mostly US cities, with decent Australian representation ... plus Paris, France and Windsor, Ontario. Sorry, direct city links don't seem to work.
