The FSM and Freetail brewery

Postby Cardinal Fang » Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:05 pm

Came across mention of this brewing company on another forum.

In a letter they write to a lawyer they reference His Noodliness. It's quite a fun read for a lawyer's letter: http://www.freetailbrewing.com/images/stories/c_and_d_response_redacted.pdf

P.S. Trying to work up the courage to use "Word to yo' mamma" instead of "Yours faithfully" in a formal letter

Also: Some brewery needs to make a "Flying Spaghett-ale Monster" beer.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

OMFSM, that was an awesome legal letter. If only more people would write like this, the world would be so much more fun to live in. Document saved to my "Awesome Docs" folder. :haha:

Seconded, but it needs a picture of strippers (male and female) on the label, along with Him.

I might be tempted to have a go at a label for the ale. it has to be a strong one of course. :drinking:

I agree with the strength issue. Don't want the label coming off easily... :whistle:

Here is my design for the beer label...all we need is the bottles and the beer!

Great design, Bart. I would buy beer with a label like that!

Welcome to Venganza, Cpt. Optimus Redbeard. Remember, when making homebrew, using half the recommended amount of water makes the beer twice the strength. :haha:

… and so does a misprint in the recipe that inverts the lbs/kgs quantities, as hubby once found out (about thirty years ago). The resultant brew was as strong as neat whisky. :drinking: :drunk:

I'll have to keep that in mind. I can't help but think of a local brewery's annual Bourbon Barrel Stout. This year I opened my first bottle and wondered if they forgot to take the bourbon out of the barrels first... :drinking:

[pedant]I really don't think so Tig. Most yeasts die off at about 12-15% alcohol (which is why most wines are around that strength). Even specially bred high-strength yeasts can only get alcohol to around 20% before they are poisoned.[/pedant]

Mind you, if he did mix the quantities up like that it might well have tasted like whisky :drinking:
