DailyDirt: Pass Me A Cold One...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Beer has shaped civilization for centuries. It's one of the oldest alcoholic beverages, and it comes in countless varieties for just about every taste. The progress of beer is unstoppable, and here are just a few more advances in the field of beer. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    007's favorite drink

    a shaken martini isn't very appealing nowadays anyway

    No Dry Vermouth in my drinks! Pure Gin is the coolest drink in town and the true successor to Martini.

    Abandoning the heavy liquors is disturbing. Bond works best queasy. I fear he will get abstinences on water like Heineken!

    Heineken is beer? When did this transformation happen?

    I wouldn't use Heinie to wash the mud from my boots, never mind drink it.

    Will the next James Bond movie continue the recent trend of starring someone who looks absolutely nothing like James Bond?

    There's no such thing as "room-temperature" beer, you ignoramus! There are beers best served chilled and there are beers best served at cellar temperature, about what you'd serve a bottle of expensive red wine. Dear God, and people wonder why I always drink gin and tonics in bars over there!

      Wait, are you talking about that room temperature, flat beer they serve over in jolly old England?

    As wise Homer says..."Ah, beer. The cause of and the solution to all of life's problems."
