    I’m in. Sounds like it could be a really good German beer. The can is cool and if they can pack them 1 up 1 down you could get 24 cans in a small area.

    Was this mentioned again today during earnings?

    Enjoy

    Thank God. I was nervous that no one had disrupted the beer space enough and am glad that someone new will be manufacturing beer fit for humanities future in space.

    have to credit Elon with being a premier showman.

    As I understand it, there are a number of other steps a company has to take between trademarking a brand name and "manufacturing" beer.

    That appears to have been a private label sort of deal (contract-distilled?) with two Mexican distilleries -
    Nosotros Tequila and Destiladora Del Valle De Tequila.

    [​IMG]

    But since Pabst is leaving Molson Coors as their primary contract brewer, MC is going to have some spare capacity in their US breweries. Heck, they're already partnering with Coca-Cola for Topo Chico Hard Seltzer.

    First a distilled spirit and now beer. What about a wine?
    I got the name - Elon Muskcatel :stuck_out_tongue:

    I'm sure this confirms it: Elon Musk is the first, real-life Bond villain.

    Where the fuck is Roger Moore when we need him most?

    It's destined to be the in-flight beverage for Space-X. Just last month, they had 4 civilians orbit the earth for 3 days! Gotta have something to drink up there to help pass the time.

    Forget Tesla and Elon Musk. They’re tanking on a major deal in this area. Selling…and SCRAPPING…literally unused equipment that was paid for by the State for them to manufacture solar panels and bring jobs. Tens of millions of dollars pocketed by that (insert not nice words here), only to have it go bust. He’s laughing at everyone. Doge Coin? People are somehow mesmerized by his BS, but he’s really just a manipulative tw@t, IMO. I wouldn’t drink his beer for free.

    The Tesla tequila was supposed to be overpriced garbage tequila in a cool package. I’m sure this will be something similar and the Tesla fanboys who don’t know crap about good beer will overpay for this junk once again.

    I thought you enjoyed your time in Hill Country.

    Cheers!

    P.S. I will be traveling to Texas (New Braunfels) in another week to visit family and have fun at Wurstfest. :beers:

    Cheers!

    It had to be done. The thought of prospective waste to perfectly good water, hops, and barley was too much to bear.

    It always seems that when folks discuss actors who portrayed James Bond that David Niven is rarely mentioned.

    Wow. Far out! I actually hope the brew they "manufacture" (little girl giggle there) is good. Like really good and that other craft brewers get in, help out and get a slice of that big ol' pie that Mr. Musk totes around. Who knows where it could all lead! Not knowing the full future plan here but if Elon is successful with this and can't get his new beer(s) to the places he wants fast enough perhaps with capital, he and a few like-minded others could somehow help to ease up the distribution log jam that's going on now. Positive thoughts!

    I hope so too, but the last celebrity beer (Kelsey Grammer) that I went after was one of the foulest beers I have tried. Brewed near to me also, I really got sucked in by that local thing.

    In fact, I have tried at least 6 beers that have traded off celebrity association, and none of them were any damned good. True, most of them were licensing deals, but still...

    I've actually heard decent things about El Sedungo's Broken Skull IPA, though I know it's likely the exception rather than the rule.

    Hill Country is great, loved it there. But Hill Country aint Texas, it's Hill Country, big difference. My opinion on the rest of Texas is one I will keep to myself but first post should be an indicator.

    Man I would cut someone for some Granzin's dry sausages right now. Hit up Roughhouse north of San Marcos if you get a chance. Great beers, great people. Cheers.

    I think Mr. Musk needs to figure out how to get lager to be a byproduct emission of his electric cars- sustainable and delicious.

    I remember Billy Beer in the 1970s; it was brewed in my hometown of Louisville, KY by Falls City Brewing. Falls City beer was not good, and Billy Beer was even worse. Billy Carter was always embarrassing Jimmy who really didn't need the additional headache, given his Presidential performance.
