Snazzy. Continue reading Beck’s Wants To Make Beer Classy With Champagne Glass-shaped Beer Can

This Is How You Order Beer Like A Local In These Countries

We heard of a story about a Chinese artisan who was so immersed in his work that he never stopped to drink water until break time and when he do drink, he drank only Chinese tea (and he was a very old man, btw). Strange. Perhaps, it was his passion tea and his preference of not wanting to enjoy the beverage he love under the sun where he worked. So, I imagine beer devotees would be more or the less be the same even as they jet set around the world. Continue reading This Is How You Order Beer Like A Local In These Countries
