all of my learning moments are due to beer. seriously, who knew not to bang your head against a brick fireplace yelling yahtzee.
All my learning moments are from Eurovision and football (the kind where you use your feet). Which do often involve beer...
I love Meerkats! And I have loved Mongooses since I saw Chuck Jones' Rili-Tiki-Tavi when I was but a child. Goes to show how unobservant I am. I need a beer.
and i learned that the plural of mongoose is "mongeese."
Lemur Kingdom > Meerkat Manor
My ex-boyfriend brought some Mongoose IPA over to my apartment one night. He only drank one and then avoided the rest on every subsequent visit. After we broke up, I drank one, hoping to consume and get rid of them. I then found out why he wouldn't touch any of the other five.
I've never understood why they didn't call it Meerkat IPA if they thought the mongoose on the label was off-putting (OK, so I'm assuming that last bit).
European football (soccer) without beer is like a bear without fur.
Everything by Hale's is made of win. My favorite is Red Menace.
for the longest time I thought they were called meekrats.
"I then found out why he wouldn't touch any of the other five."
Bill Jenkins head brewer of Big Time -does- brew a seasonal "Meerkat IPA" as a nod to Mongoose IPA (and the label) which he had a hand in creating when he was at Hales. Someone on the Meerkat Manor production team found out about Meerkat IPA and paid Bill to send over several cases of Bombers* for their season three launch party.
*Though the beer was labeled as 'Meerkat IPA' the bottles actually contained Scarlet Fire (another IPA) as Bill haden't brewed Meerkat IPA in months. Don't tell anyone.
too many fucking hops. could american microbrewers please learn to approximate a decent european lager?
While they are many excellent European lagers, if you're refering to any you'll find at a Safeway (Becks, Heinekin, Stella Artois, Harp) then your answer is American brewers already have approximated it. It's called Budweiser. I'll give you Pilsner Urquell, but not by much.
This reminds me of something Megan Seling would post, minus the beer of course.
I also love Meerkat Manor, and the American Hobbit's strangely placid narration. A little baby meerkat gets eaten and he intones, soothingly, "nature at its rawest" before segueing to something cuter. Love love love.
Also, I suspect his immersion in this matriarchal society is responsible for his support of Hillary Clinton; his incoherent pitch at the 43rd LD caucus gave nothing else to go on.
@12 -- You are a fucking jackass. Not only are there a huge number of domestic craft breweries doing high-quality low IBU lagers and ales, there are a bunch of local breweries producing great stuff. Try Baron, Alpine, Georgetown, Laughing Buddha, Elysian to name a few...
You probably drink Stella, right? Fucking frat-boy phillistine.
P.S. We stopped using the word "microbrews" in around 1989. Might want to get rid of your Jesus Jones cassette tapes as well.
A philistine wouldn't drink shitty over-priced microbrews, you idiot.
