Two Henrys Blueberry Vanilla Wheat; brewed just down the road in Plant city as an adjunct to a winery known for their blueberry wine. So when the owner’s son decided to join the micro-brew trend, what could be more obvious than a blueberry beer?
And I’ve had a few blueberry beers (Sea Dog comes to mind, and Wild Blue (which is apparently an A-B product). But the other night at O’Toole’s Irish Pub in Brandon FL, I
found this beer as a write-in on it’s (not shabby) draft beer list. It was so good, I ended up drinking three! Let me tell you, it went really well with the Steak & Mushroom Pie.
It has a nice blueberry favor, but not overwhelming as to cover up the beer taste, and an undercurrent of the vanilla, which made it real interesting. Here’s hoping Two Henrys bottles this one, and sends it over to Lakeland Beer Revolution, my favorite beer store (and it’s 6 taps of ever changing microbrews).
After the North American Beer Festival, all the brewery presidents decided to go out for a beer. The guy from Corona sits down and says, 'Hey Senor, I would like the world's best beer, a Corona .' The bartender dusts off a bottle from the shelf and gives it to him.
The guy from Budweiser says, 'I'd like the best beer in the world, give me 'The King Of Beers', a Budweiser.' The bartender gives him one..
The guy from Coors says, 'I'd like the only beer made with Rocky Mountain spring water, give me a Coors.' He gets it. bee
The guy from Molson Canadian sits down and says, 'Give me a Coke.' The bartender is a little taken aback, but gives him what he ordered. The other brewery presidents look over at him and ask, 'Why aren't you drinking a Molson's?'
The Molson Canadian president replies, 'Well, I figured if you guys aren't drinking beer, neither would I.'

Pierre Celis, who revived witbier with his Hoegaarden (later sold to what is now AB-Inbev); in 1992 at the age of 67, founded a new microbrewery in Austin TX. (At a Brickskeller tasting, Celis, who spoke English haltingly, remarked that he chose Texas because its inhabitants speak with a slow drawl, making them easier to understand.)
In an op-ed piece in the paper(New York Times), Turkish writer Mustafa Akyol calls on the Muslim world to ease its concept of blasphemy.
"Rage is a sign of nothing but immaturity," he says. "The power of any faith comes not from its coercion of critics and dissenters. It comes from the moral integrity and the intellectual strength of its believers."
