Help! I’m a labeorphilist!

Wait – before you call the police and try to get my name on a registry – “labeorphilist” is the word for a person who collects beer cans and bottles.   And I have to admit, I have a tendency to keep my empties – especially ones with nice labels.  Maybe I am using too much precious storage space by keeping them, but on the other hand, it’s like having your own physical version of Untappd!  Anyway, I’m apparently a labeorphilist and proud of it!  Here’s the most recent addition to my collection:



The Brewholder

Not Nice

A beer geek walks into a bar and says to the bartender, “Give me one of your finest craft brews; give everyone in here a craft brew; and have one for yourself.”  The bartender serves everyone a beer and draws one for himself.  He asks the generous beer geek for payment, and the beer geek says he has no money.  The bartender physically ejects him from the bar.  Undeterred, the beer geek picks himself up, dusts off his copy of “Tasting Beer” and limps right back into the bar.  He crawls onto a bar stool and says to the bartender, “Give me a brew and give everyone else here one too.  But none for you – you get too mean when you drink.”
