Alcoholics May Stop at One Drink With Help From Lundbeck Anti-Abuse Drug (article)

Seriously, I mean, do drug makers really have too much time and money on their hands? Like, as if anyone had told them we needed that drug!

On a related note, Merry Christmas kids!

A Life-changing Beer Experience. - From Qingdao with Love

Ladies and Gentlemen, My Dear Friends,

Please allow my self-indulgence here and be patient with what I have to say in the following minute, because I am going to say it three times:

Qingdao Yuanjiang Beer is the best beer in China and one of the best I've ever had in the world!
Qingdao Yuanjiang Beer is the best beer in China and one of the best I've ever had in the world!
Qingdao Yuanjiang Beer is the best beer in China and one of the best I've ever had in the world!

I have to say that I didn't expect it to be that good when I planned my trip. All I heard was how people drink it in plastics bags (and we did it too!) and how it's different in Qingdao from other places... Well, the truth is, it is ONLY AVAILABLE in Qingdao! "Yuanjiang" means "original" in Chinese, and it is the unpasteurized version of the famous Qingdao beer so it's only sold locally due to the strict requirements to keep it fresh and good. It is so refreshing in summer and best with all those awesome fresh and fat seafood available in Qingdao, let alone those street-side restaurants, beaches, 1900 European style buildings and MOST FRIENDLY PEOPLE AND CUTEST ACCENT ever!

You can tell that I have much love for Qingdao and I bet you would be too if you were there - well preferrably with us to have an even cooler travel experience.

The below photos are contributed by Hu's Fabulous Tour Qingdao Chapter (meaning beer sessions from 10am to mid-night, daily) for your edification. Eat your heart out.

We all miss Qingdao. And I will be back.

Lots of Love,

Yuanjiang Beer

World's First Sexy Beer

Bavarian Brewery Claims to Spice Up Sex Lives

A brewmeister in Bavaria is convinced that he has come up with the "world's first sexy beer," a tipple that will not only boost libidos, but also fertility and potency. Will "Erotic Beer" prove to be better than Viagra?

Well, what if he drinks the beer and takes Viagra?

Back in Japan

Finally! It seems that it doesn't really matter whether I'm "back in Japan" or not, point is I'm BACK ON DOBREPIVO! A celebration was duly held with a small bottle of chilled sake with yakitori, grilled seafood, rice with seafood...

It's a celebration, bitches!


More in Vietnam

Uncle-in-laws didn't think Fang could drink - Fang was supposed to be shy and hardworking and clean like all Long My girls. That was no longer true to them after she had demanded a beer on the banquet night. The next morning someone knocked at her door at 8:30 and she was invited to a morning party with the uncle-in-laws. She liked 333, apart from the ice.

fang cannot make posts, but i am going to reconstruct this picture based on second-hand information, writing pretending as if it were fang writing: (imagine a british accent)

"so actually you know i met li ping recently, it was in shanghai for new years. and many of the cities were closed, the bund, the public transport network was paralyzed because of the mass of people wishing to celebrate, so we couldn't go there, but we wanted to go see the countdown, and we took a cab and oh my god thirty minutes but we finally got there and we realized oh my god we don't have any alcohol, so we went and bought two bottles of wine you know to celebrate and for the countdown. it was so boring, and by the time we reached back to the hotel and finally opened the bottles of wine the countdown was already starting. i mean you want to have one or two drinks to build up the atmosphere, you know so you can feel festive for the countdown, but we had no time to do that. so yes li ping is doing quite well, she is no longer a good employee."
