nice video and kudos to the editor for using Helvetica instead of Arial.

As a graphic designer I think you'll appreciate this:

Everyone should do themselves the favor of watching Archer, its got to be one of the top 3 funniest shows on tv right now. H Jon Benjamin also does the voice of Bob from Bob's Burgers, another show that's growing on me.

Speaking about "new" cartoons, I still think spongebob is one of the most original and funny compared to the rest of the crap on today. it totally reminds me of stuff like hanna barbera and looney tunes.

I dunno, maybe its just me getting old but stuff like inuyasha, naruto and pokemon just don't hold a candle to some of the older anime stuff like Battle of the Planets, Starblazers, etc

I thought this might be of interest:

The talking points are up and the action alert has been made.

The Garden State Craft Brewers Guild is asking New Jersey beer enthusiasts to reach out to their representatives in Trenton to support Senate bill 2870 and Assembly bill A3969.

The companion legislation would bring the rules under which the state's craft breweries operate more in line with marketplace conditions in the mid-Atlantic region and elsewhere nationally.


But back to the commercial brewing legislation.

Here's what the guild says is the aim of S2870 and A3969, which were referred to law and public safety committees in their respective chambers:

Remove the arbitrary cap (2 brew pubs) on the amount of brewpubs a company can open in the state. (Taking away this cap means brewpub businesses wishing to expand and create jobs in the state could without any unnecessary restrictions.)

Allow small breweries to sell beer directly to consumers from their brewery locations. (New Jersey wineries already have this privilege. Additionally, this element mirrors A3520, which was introduced back in November.)

Allow small brewers to sell their product at 10 locations across the state directly to consumers. (New Jersey wineries have this privilege already, bringing their product directly to consumers without any harmful impact on other wine or alcohol interests. Think BYOB restaurants with this one.)

Allow small breweries and brewpubs to offer samples to consumers both at their brewery or offsite at such things as charity events and festivals.

Allow brewpubs to sell their beer at other bars and restaurants that they own but do not brew beer onsite, yet have a retail consumption license.

Allow brewpubs to sell their beer off-premise in the same manner as small breweries through the wholesale distribution chain. (This would allow consumers to buy their favorite brewpub beer at other locations in the state.)

Increase the amount of craft beer both New Jersey’s small breweries and brewpubs could produce annually.

The current regulations were enacted in the early 1990s, a time when craft brewing in New Jersey seemed faddish, more likely to remain a niche interest and not grow into a part of the state's manufacturing base.



I only copied the most interesting bits, the entire article can be found here:

The short version:

Used to brew at a buddy's house (he owned all the equipment and had a perfect basement for racking) then I moved. 12 years later my wife bought me a Mr Beer kit, I got the bug again and bought all new equipment this year.

The Pub / Brewery Logo Design

I'm a graphic designer and in my spare time I like to experiment with different projects either to hone my skills or learn new ones. Since I got back into brewing I've been obsessed with beer logos and labels so I decided to create a one for a fake company.

I heard the word Flintlocke somewhere and it stuck so I decided to run with it.

Lemme know what you think!

Cheers!
Tony

You could always wait until one of them has a BBQ or a party and has some type of delicious food available, then show up the next day with takeout containers and ask for some more of it, then leave. Do it the next day too or until they get the hint.

If you really want to be passive-agressive about it you could make up a sign that says:

The Beer is Free, but the Ingredients are NOT!

And hang it near wherever you fill the growlers. This just might be the graphics guy in me talking but you could always print that up on a business cards and hand them out with free refills.

I never give out my 1-liter flip-tops, but I do bring a bunch with me whenever i visit a friend's house and they always leave with me! However I give out 12oz bottles freely and don't care if they come back or not.

I've owned 8 VW Bugs and had a bunch of stickers, here are a few that i remember:

"When I grow up I'm gonna be a Porsche"
"fukkengruven"
"Welcome to our beach, now go home."
"This is not an abandoned vehicle, please don't tow"
"My other car is a Beetle too"
