>I Often Wonder What The Brewers Drink

31 Oct

>Or is it Vintners? Vernors?* (Ale-8-One, maybe?)

There I was, shopping at Giant Home Improvement Store — ‘cos it’s “make more bookshelves,” time for some reason I’m not even real clear on, and it was my idea — and there, close by the entrance, an alarm company’s van is parked. His security system sometimes goes off with a warning as people walk by….

You may wonder, is it a polite chirp? One of those show-off alarms that runs through more and more of its repertoire the longer you linger, louder every time? Maybe the headlights and taillights flash?


It’s a great big dog, who barks and leaps up at the window if you get close.

So, a tip from a guy who’d know? On car-alarms, at least, go organic!
* Now owned by one of the Big Names (and arguably the kewlest) but still darned good.

    >Vernors! Detroit's greatest contribution to mankind! Well, aside from Faygo. And Ted Nugent. I can get Vernors here on the Upper Left Coast, but have to mail order Faygo.

    >The Vernors around here has definitely changed and not for the better.Are they still claiming 4 years in oak barrels over your ways?

    >Oh, I miss Ale-8! There's a drink I haven't had in a decade and some – wonder if it'll live up to the nostalgia and sun-drenched muggy memories?Sounds like the guy installed the alarm system with defense and offense capabilities!
