Death of Print Journalism? There’s a Beer for That
Former Hartford Advocate reporter Jon Campbell is now living the life of a freelancer, and between assignments he’s been homebrewing up a pithy, malted barley beer that’s as “dark and bitter as the future of American journalism.”
It’s a foamy beer for the heady age of buy-outs and layoffs, and on his blog, Campbell explains that he’s also been keeping busy by “making some very elaborate labels.”
A family of bears have broken into a holiday cabin in Norway and drunk over a hundred cans of lager.
The bears got into the cabin through a window. They then apparently proceeded to drink all the family’s beer supply, eat all the food in the kitchen – including chocolate, honey and jam – and then smash up the furniture.
The owner of the cabin, Even Borthen Nilsen, returned home with his family to discover dozens of empty beer cans.
“They have bitten into the cans and drunk the beer,” Nilsen told Finnmarken newspaper. “They had a hell of a party in there. The entire cabin was destroyed. The beds and all kitchen appliances, stove, oven and cupboards and shelves were all smashed to pieces. It’s almost like it was taken out of Goldilocks and the three bears.”
Hoppenstance is a beer blog managed by Ben Lippert, a Sioux Falls online marketing professional and craft beer connosiour. I believe that many things in life occur by happenstance. That, combined with my love for beer, gave me the idea for this beer blog. Raise your glass to circumstance. Cheers!
