Beer raises questions about a higher power..

Fellow Riot-actors

I am generally not a religous person but I now have reason to reconsider the presence of a higher power in my life.

I had heard rumours last week of a tasty new brew by none other than our own Zierholz Brewery (www.zierholz.com.au) but alas could not find it. I cried to the heavens “please show me a sign” & lo & behold,

Miracle No. 1 – The Hopmeister appeared in Das Kapital at the Narrabundah shops & yea my thirst was slaked.

Miracle No. 2 – I went to the Oktoberfest on the weekend & before my eyes appeared the Zierholz stand complete with the new Hopmeister, a Weizzen & one they called the Oktoberfest.(which was a lager)

I urge you to embrace the Hopmeister at Das Kapital & share the vision.

I do believe that a Zierholz beer is available on tap at the Vikings Town Centre Sports Club, in Tuggeranong.

Behold!! The mote in gods eye is merely a hops bud. Therein lies divine wisdom that heavenly grains may bring forth to the shrine of your taste buds.


Brother Random Git – blessed be the Angels who pour forth their Golden Zierholz Showers upon me!

Drinking anything that’s 60-74% ethanol will give you a different drunk feeling ;). Mind if I ask which brand you’re drinking?

Simple fact my man.

Yes, it’s present – in trace amounts far below that required to produce any pharmacological effects whatsoever. The active ingredient in absinthe is alcohol, nothing more. Any ‘buzz’ you get beyond drunkedness is entirely in your imagination.

I believe bonfire is the resident expert on absinthe, he must have some real work to do unfortunately.

There’s next to no thujone in any absinthe, and there never has been.

I suspect that the Hungarian stuff is a close relative of the Czech! I ended up passing out on a tram, getting off-loaded by the driver I knew not where and ended up wandering the streets for hours trying to find my hotel.

Whitey, praise you my brother!! The path to enlightenment is paved with angels who piss Zierholz on your tonsils.

Welcome home.

The locally available stuff isn’t the real deal Thumper. It’s just highly alcoholic anise liqueur. A night on the green fairy in Budapest some years ago confirmed why it should probably be illegal…

I want your ear thumper.
