  1. This shows very well, how crappy most of today’s food and drinks are: “it takes around 14 days to make a beer”. Right, 14 days for a super-fast-piece-of-crap fermentation. Think about the fact, that this process should take several weeks to make a good beer. Just like in the old days – but now, everything is run by more money, higher income etc. I cannot drink this piss from the big and well known breweries like Carlsberg and Heineken… it’s a chemical mixture not a good beer 😉

  2. Wait, where are the skunks? I know Heineken employs a secret army of skunks who impart their scent on the beer right before the caps go on!

  3. Here in Canada they make the beer with 5 Ingredients. 95% tax goes in First.
    Oh, & the skunks are the ones setting the prices.

  4. Remember, even the phrase “all natural” means nothing! Since all products are made up of chemicals refined from nature, EVERYTHING is “all natural” (yes, even petroleum is natural).

    • Amen to that, I’m fed up with people thinking all natural things are good and everything made by man is bad. Also reminds me of a bunch of people who trolled folk by saying they should ban dihydrogen monoxide….
