Tova and Ida (from Sweden) sent us the following note: We found IsItMondayNow.com and we LOVE it! Originally our favorite website was erdetfredag.dk (“Is it Friday” in Danish. And yes, we are trilingual). So we started promoting that web page at work, and now all 50 of us check it daily. So our next mission
Well folks, it happened. Joel had a baby. Or more accurately, Joel’s wife had a baby. Oliver was born yesterday, a 6 lb 15 oz bundle of safe and adorable. In Oliver’s short 32 hours on this earth, he has already demonstrated a surprising ability to adhere to operating procedures, coordinate deliveries, and manage multiple
The following is only loosely related to Monday Night. The following is a personal vendetta against Joel, my business partner. Dear Joel, I miss one week of brewing, and I get blasted on our blog? Joel, you overstep your bounds. And unfortunately for you, when we were kegging beer earlier this week, I had my
While waiting for the most recent episode of our favorite reality television special, it is grand to enjoy some co-ed popcorn popping around a bustling fire. Beers in hand, of course. There is little more relaxing than wearing a shirt and tie or formal dress in the wee hours of the night. Now pass that
Ah, there is nothing finer. Reclining with other mustachio’d cosmopolitan gentlemen in the ferns. Clasping pipes and cold beers from far-away lands. Discussing appropriate neckwear, funny hats, and womenfolk. This is the life we aspire to. Now leave us be. Image source: Powerhouse Museum Collection
A prototype of Apple’s next iPhone was left at a German beer garden by Apple employee Gray Powell. Unfortunately for Apple, Gizmodo found it. And now German airline Lufthansa is getting in on the action. In an open letter to Gray Powell, Lufthansa employee Nicola C. Lange writes: I recently read in the news that
We sent out our newsletter last week. If you didn’t get it, you need to sign up immediately. In our “Hang out with us online” section, we include a link to a Rick Roll. See below. Nine (9) of you clicked on this link. This is amusing because this is perhaps the lamest Rick Roll
It’s no surprise that we love beer. If it IS a surprise, you clearly have trouble drawing reasonable conclusions from what you have read. But why do we love beer? Our reasons are varied, and we’d love to hear yours. Here are some of my top reasons, in no particular order: Beer is alive. The
Let there be NO DOUBT. Bryan Adams, Patron Saint of Monday Night Brewing, totally rocked Vancouver’s face off last night. And as Tony Simon astutely pointed out, Bryan was dressed exactly like our logo. Black suit, black tie, tie loose as a goose. Coincidence? Absolutely not.
Imagine my surprise when I found this in my Google Alerts this morning: I took a screen shot because I didn’t know how long the USA Today URL would work. When will they figure out that we are a far cry from a legitimate news source? My hope is never. Turns out they pulled our
A curious Monday-related sign spotted on the “blog” of “unnecessary” quotation marks. Sounds like someone needs a website that tells them when it’s actually Monday. Because “Monday” can sometimes sneak up on you. For instance, is today, for all intents and purposes a Wednesday, more of a “Monday”? Something to think about…
Let me paint a picture for you… You had a nice little jog earlier in the morning, but since then you’ve been gorging yourself on Doritos and watching the marathon of Flipping Out on Bravo. Things have been pretty much awesome. But now you’re thirsty and a cold Monday Night would really hit the spot.
Read that title one more time before you continue. Let that pun simmer. Okay, proceed. We’ve had more than zero applications for our job posting for Chief of Fire-related Operations (CFO) and I must say, the applicants have been severely overqualified. Here’s one of our favorites. If you are also qualified (or over-qualified) for the
We’ll be too busy listening to Bryan Adams to brew tonight. If you don’t understand, GET OFF THE SHED.
Such a simultaneously sad and happy day in my Bryan Adams world. Happy: I just bought the new Bryan Adams album for $5 at WalMart. I’m listening to it right now. Pure gold. “I need to breathe you in, over and over again, like oxygen.” Yeah. That just happened. Sad: $5? Really? Bryan, you’re worth
In lieu of brewing, I leave you with a joke. A neutron walks into a bar. “I’d like a beer,” he says. The bartender promptly serves up a beer. “How much will that be?” asks the neutron. “For you?” replies the bartender, “no charge.” And that, folks, is how it’s done.
Warning: mild language in video. This is Joel “The Pink Mojito” Iverson’s anthem.
Attention Atlanta. Do you have anything that looks similar to this crowding up your basement or garage? If so, you may be in possession of what we call a “chest freezer.” Be warned, these are potentially lethal devices. Amateurs maintain that they are “cool,” but they are really ice queens. They also use electricity (which
The Wall Street Journal published an interesting article today on the correlation between a ballpark’s winning percentage and the cost of the beer there. I’m admittedly not the biggest baseball fan (I blame it on one massive failure of a year playing Little League), but beer and economics is right up my alley. Beer prices
We took a break from our bottle rocket war (it’s not as dangerous as it sounds, Mom) this weekend to do a little light-writing. Compliments to Martin for the stellar shot, and Andy and Simon for holding down the “N” and “B,” respectively.
Some of you may have noticed (and laughed at) the complete mish-mash of pint glasses we drink from on Mondays. About half have our old monk logo, and the other half are from random respectable breweries. Well no longer. Joel ordered some pretty sweet tasting glasses and they arrived today. There’s a front and a
