"...and hallucinogenic mushrooms."
That's a headline in The Mercury News of San Jose today. When I go hunting Goggle, once in every while, for beer news to comment upon there are always masses of these sad stories about beer and violence to get through about, say, man beats man with beer or, you know, man beats beer with man or, heck, even beer beats man with man. They are unendingly dreary, always say pretty much the same thing and undermine the work everyone does to raise the perspective folk have about beer.
But the fine work of Marshall Cartwright, 33, reported this week in The Mercury News really stands apart from the crowd. What a genius. Especially given he was "claiming to be a covert military operative from Australia" even while he was "urinating in the bushes" when he was not sell the beer in the keg by handing around a Mason jar...11:45 a.m. last Monday. Excellent work Marshall Cartwright, 33. Brilliant. You have reached the apex of the beer pig pantheon. We salute you!
