Beer and the Real World
Regarding today’s challenging economy, the election, and the recently concluded World Series (congratulations Phillies!), I think the following quote from Babe Ruth really underscores a good perspective on life these days
“Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think, ‘it is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true, than to be selfish and worry about my liver.'”
What a sage! Gotta say he had his priorities straight! Cheers!

Clipper City Wins Again at the 2008 GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL!
Clipper City Pale Ale received a silver medal in the English style pale ale category. This medal means that every beer in our Clipper City brand has won at least one medal at the GABF! Also, our Clipper City MarzHon received a bronze medal in the Vienna lager category. This makes 3 years in a row that our MarzHon has medaled at the GABF! I do not know of any other product that has medaled 3 years straight and I think that clearly indicates that Clipper City MarzHon has to be considered among the very best of Oktoberfest style beers in the land. Congratulations to our brewers!
