A Budget Brewery Built From Shipping Containers

Starbucks has done it. Taco Bell has done it. And now it’s the microbrewery’s turn. The 40ft Brewery in Dalston, London, opened earlier this year. Its name comes from the fact that it was constructed out of two, 20-foot-long shipping containers that sit atop an old car park.

“The spot has a very short rolling lease from the council due to being part of a greater redevelopment plan for the area,” co-founder Andreas Pettersson says. “So by using shipping containers, we can turn this derelict place into a place to brew and serve great beer. If or when we need to move we can pick up our brewery to a new plot of land, we own the brewery and the containers.”

Almost December

TurkeyNov2015Thanksgiving is over. All the turkey and trimmings have been consumed. The good dishes and silver are washed and put away. The cake stand sits forlornly empty next to the sink, waiting to be washed. All the excitement for a relaxing four day weekend is gone, and so are the lovely 60+ degree days we’ve enjoyed all week.

The beagles and I went out into a still, frosty, moonlit 20 degree morning. Read more

And Now From Our Satire Department…

NEW YORK, NY – Every news organization in the world agreed Saturday never to describe the shooter who attacked a Planned Parenthood in Colorado as a ‘Christian terrorist,’ even though that’s exactly what he is.

“Well, he’s an angry Christian conservative white man,” said CNN news chief Wolf Blitzer. “So we prefer to refer to him as being mentally ill.”

Some suggested that this decision was motivated by ratings.

“We obviously can’t call him a Christian extremist or a Christian terrorist,” said Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. “Most of our audience is Christian and would be offended. Besides, we would never report that anyway, because it’s something that’s true.”

[White] Woman Goes on Shooting Spree, yet somehow isn’t automatically Killed By Police

We’ve been told that pointing out teeny, tiny, little discrepancies in policing like this is clearly the product of Cop Hate.  That when Mayor Bill de Blasio refused to be baited by a right wing reporter into condemning all of the police violence protesters simply because a few of them did something shameful and disgusting, that simply because Mayor de Blasio admitted that he fears for the life of his own son when potentially confronted by police and said the following…

This is profoundly personal to me. I was at the White House the other day, and the president of the United States turned to me, and he met Dante a few months ago, and he said that Dante reminded him of what he looked like as a teenager. And he said I know you see this crisis through a very personal lens. And I said to him, I did.Because Chirlane and I have had to talk to Dante for years about the dangers that he may face. A good young man, law-abiding young man who would never think to do anything wrong. And yet, because of a history that still hangs over us, the dangers he may face, we’ve had to literally train him—as families have all over this city for decades—in how to take special care in any encounter he has with the police officers who are there to protect him.
