Happy Friday, folks! We can’t believe that September is already over and it’s time to start prepping Halloween cocktails and debating over Thanksgiving wines. Here are a few links from around the interwebs that we wanted to share.
Ken Burns talks Prohibition with Stephen Colbert Ken Burns’ three part documentary on the Volstead Act debuts Sunday night on PBS. We’re looking forward to it, as all early reviews have been pretty darn favorable. If nothing else, documentaries like this one remind us that we should never, ever, go down the prohibition road again.
Playboy’s Vintage Beer Ad Roundup This is a seriously nostalgic look at the beer advertisements of yore, ripped straight from the pages of vintage Playboy magazines. For Drink Me’s sake, we’re happy that beer advertising has modernized. (Safe for work, but we ARE sending you to the Playboy website)
Public Bikes is selling a Wine Carrier Public shows us again that they are hip to all things design and cycling. . . by offering this ingenious leather wine carrier. Now you have no excuse for showing up to a dinner party on your bike empty-handed.
Brewtruc is imminent! San Francisco readers are probably very familiar with Le Truc, the black schoolbus that turns out rustic gourmet fare in parking lots in SOMA (their meatball sandwich is ridiculous). Well, now they are launching a beer truck to act as limousine, mobile beer garden, and beer school. We wouldn’t want to be the ones filing all the licensing paperwork, but we’ll certainly be in line to get on board for bussed brews!
Have a great weekend, and be sure to watch ‘Prohibition‘ on Sunday!
