Guy wins beer for life

YORK, Va., Feb. 27 (UPI) — A York, Va., man named the nation’s top beer fan by a Colorado-based brewery has been awarded a lifetime supply of his favorite beverage.

Matt Venzke, who was named the winner of the “12th Annual Search for America’s Ultimate Beer Fiend,” which was carried out via a series of question-and-answer sessions with contestants, won “free beer for life” from Wynkoop Brewing Co., as well as a $250 beer tab at his favorite bar and the chance to design his own custom-brew alongside the company’s top brewer, the Newport News (Va.) Daily Press reported Wednesday.

Venzke explained that his new found title was not based on the quantity of beer he drinks, but rather on the variety of brews he enjoys and his level of fandom.

“It’s not about drinking high quantities of beer, it’s about enjoying the diversities of beer,” Venzke said.

Wynkoop said Venzke was chosen for his “humor” as well as “a combination of impressive beer drinking experiences … and beer ambassadorship.”

stealing girl scout cookies? shame

All right yall lets get the baschturds who ganked the cookies.


Nearly $160 worth of Girl Scout Cookies disappeared from a 29-year-old’s car late Friday.

Police say the woman stopped to visit friends in the 1000 block of North 48th Street at 11 p.m. When she returned to her car about an hour later, 45 boxes of Peanut Butter Patties, Carmel deLites, Thin Mints, Shortbread cookies and Cinna-Spins that had been inside were gone, Office Katie Flood said. The car was left locked, but the cookie thief was able to get into the car through a partly opened window.

Police have no suspects, but may be wise to be on the lookout for a trail of cookie crumbs.

Corn and Bacon Pie


I saw the title and thought of you Bork! I have not made this, (as I just saw the recipe today!) but plan on doing so this weekend! Get it HERE! I am going to cheat and buy one of those premade pilsbury crusts – no one will know the difference! I wish I had some of your good Hollenbeck bacon though!
