Some folks I know are real fans of drinking beer. For me, it is a minor beverage; I tell folks it has to be a hot day, the beer is free and comes in a green bottle.
Turns out there is something to that green bottle stuff.
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!
If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.
Connoisseurs of beer and ale agree that beer can turn skunky if exposed to light, and that brown beer bottles prevent the most light from hitting the beer and changing it's flavor.
Here is a link to a scientific experiment that demonstrates the truth of this wisdom.
It seems that beer in green bottles is primarily a marketing tool. I wonder if extra steps are taken to keep these expensive, mostly European beers fresh, or if they just sell faster than beer in brown bottles because the green is attractive?
Since I am the opposite of a beer connoisseur, I probably can't tell the difference if beer is skunky. I do think that the green bottles are prettier! Cheers!
