Misconceptions about Newcastle Brown Ale

Have you seen the latest Newcastle Brown Ale advert “Misconceptions”?

i just saw it for the first time yesterday and was sure it was a goof — until I Googled it and discovered that it was a real ad. What say you? Yay or nay?

(And for the record, it’s been years since I have had Newcastle, but am thinking of trying it again … I, too, thought it was too bitter at the time).

EVERY STATE IN THE USA, RANKED BY ITS BEER

At any rate, I’m glad to live in a state that appreciates beer – where I can procure some wonderful locally brewed beers, and get my favorites from the U.K. easily.

Thrillist.com agrees – and has put together its ranking of every state based on the quality and quantity of the beer they produce. California was #2, only surpassed by Oregon (which I have to say does have some wonderful brews).

How did your state do? And what’s your favorite beer?

The Tea Song

If you’re already on Team Tea, you probably already know that tea is an elixir that can help you cope with bad breakups, zombies and urinary infections. But if you’re still on the fence, Yorkshire Tea has launched an incredibly catchy tune called “The Tea Song.”

I fancy a cuppa right about now. How about you?
