KEG STAND aka KEG DIVE
1. The person puts both hands on the keg.
2. Friends pick up the person by the legs and tip them upward, as if they were doing a handstand on the keg.
3. The person wraps their lips around the tap, opens it, and drinks.
4. The surrounding audience and awaiting participants chant the number of seconds for which the person is drinking.
5. The person shakes their leg (or head) to signal to friends when they can't drink anymore and need to get down.
**7. Do not let drunk people suspend their friends, there is the chance they may drop them onto the keg. This may result in a plethora of injuries from bruised ribs and slight internal bleeding to a concussion.
When you think keg you usually think undergraduate students, possibly in a fraternity, drinking irresponsibly. What you got was a bunch of master's students in their early, mid and late twenties who had never done keg stands before (I was not one of these people). Much like Claireski's smazeny syr cherry was popped on camera, there were many photos representing the keg cherry popping on camera. Good times all around. Highly recommended!

Brit stranger devouring gyros: Sheffield. You?
Brit stranger devouring gyros: What do you do here?
Claire: I teach English.
Brit stranger devouring gyros: AND you talk like THAT!

Lausitzer Porter. A dark beer. I seem to recall it being a tough finish. It's one of those meal beers you should only drink on a partially-full stomach, not after a filling German meal full of rostbratl and bratwurst. Mmm...bratwurst.
Unfortunately, this beer just wasn't for me. Other black beers have been fine, but there was something about this one that just didn't work.

It's "the brewing event of the year for beerlovers and gourmets!" Daily activities include the Beer Playoffs and Cheese Workshops! Whoohoo. I'm checking my wallet to see if I can make it to this one. Will be sure to tell you alllll about it!

Something’s brewing in a garage in St. Charles. Tom Seefurth is mixing up a concoction he'll eventually pour out as beer – pizza beer. (details)
Honestly I'm quite disgusted and feeling a bit sick now. For me this is just wrong. What do you guys say?

Read this and you too could get a major corporation to not only help you form and maintain your beer habit but also pay for it when you decide it's a problem - interesting dilemma ...
Will the chocolate tasting employees of Mars, Nestle and Cadburys be jumping on the band waggon soon i wonder...

I have had this beer in Canada...on two occasions...but experiencing it much closer to its home gave it a whole new meaning.
If you're looking for a hearty beer that gets you drunk quick, look no further than Duckstein. It packs quite the alcohol content and is dark and malty (although not nearly to the extend of the Highlander).
Unfortunately, a pint is an awful lot of the stuff to ingest in one sitting. It just doesn't taste good enough to want to drink it. You kind of have to will yourself to do it, knowing that the reward at the end is a nice happy feeling.

**Just to note, pivo does have its fair share of nutritional value as well. You can find Vitamin B, carbohydrates, proteins, and minerals such as phosphoric acid.
