Quote of the Day

Daniel Davies at Crooked Timber is embarked in a spirited defense of American macro-brewed lagers, and he has a great bullet point that makes me laugh as I am done with work for the weekend.

Budweiser does not taste like piss. Normal urine has a pH of 4.6 to 8.0. Budweiser, like most lagers, has a pH of around 4.0. Therefore, Budweiser is definitely more acidic than piss. It’s also just the ticket if you happen to be drinking beer for breakfast, as the fresh taste of the rice content goes particularly well with most cereals (it is not coincidental that nobody has yet marketed Barley Krispies).
