Đáng là một trọng tội

công ty Oakshire Brewing phải thu hồi sản phẩm vì lon bia có thể... phát nổ
-----
In the past few months, Oakshire Brewing has released a half-dozen different beers under its "Theme from the Bottom" line, including Double Berry Passion Swirl, Triple Berry Cinnamon Swirl, and Pog and Blueberry Coconut Dreamsicle. The Eugene, Oregon brewery recently made an announcement (tuyên bố, thông báo) about its Theme From the Bottom: Mango Raspberry Cheesecake Smoothie Sour Ale, but instead of praising (đáng khen ngợi) the mid-January debut (ra mắt), it's asking anyone who has the beer in their fridge to put on a face shield (che mặt) and a pair of safety gloves (găng tay bảo hộ) before carefully placing the cans in an outdoor dumpster.

According to a press release from Oakshire, it had seen signs of refermentation in some cans of the "Theme Mango Cheesecake" beer, which could cause the cans to bulge or to explode (phát nổ). Every customer (khách hàng) who purchased (mua) the beer online or in-person at its taprooms between January 16 and January 18 have been alerted (cảnh báo), and the company says that none of its other beers have been affected.

Bí quyết giúp cuộc sống về hưu không buồn chán

hai giáo sư sinh học người anh nghỉ hưu, đến nam phi định cư và đóng góp cho cộng đồng bằng cách... làm bia từ phân voi :D

It’s hard to believe (thật khó tin) that elephant dung (phân voi) could be the main ingredient of a premium spirit drink (rượu hảo hạng), but it’s true. South African gin Indlovu is made with botanicals harvested from the pachyderm (loài da dày (voi, tê giác..); người mặt dày mày dạn, người không biết nhục) poop.

Paula and Les Ansley, both former professors (giáo sư) in different fields of biology (sinh học), decided to moved from the UK to South Africa, after retiring, and come up with a way to contribute to conservation efforts (nỗ lực bảo tồn) in the region and support the local community (cộng đồng địa phương). Neither of them had any idea that elephant dung would play such a big part in their plan, it just sort of happened. Today they run a distillery that uses “botanicals foraged by elephants” and harvested from their poop to create Indlovu gin, a unique spirit that doesn’t taste anything like you’d imagine.

The escapade (sự tự do phóng túng, hành động phiêu lưu) occurred early on Wednesday in the capital Riga. Security camera footage shows the three dressed in black breaking into the mini zoo and stuffing the turkey into a black bag.

The men, aged between 30 and 40, then took the bird to the seaside resort (khu nghỉ dưỡng bên bờ biển) of Jurmala.

Upon arriving at a train station in Jurmala named Bulduri, which means "Turkey's Speech" in Latvian, they headed to the beach to drink and also forced vodka down the bird's beak.

The party was over when police noticed the men with the turkey and arrested (bắt giữ) them for burglary (trộm) and trespassing (xâm phạm, xâm lấn, phạm pháp).

The drunken high jinx ended in embarrassment for Rosie Cole, 21, who decided to entertain her housemates with her contortion (vặn vẹo) act.

...She’d been enjoying a couple bottles of Zinfandel wine and honey tequila when their Tuesday evening took a sudden turn.

The tipsy student thought there was “no chance” she’d fit, but after wiggling (lắc lư, ngọ nguậy) her way in she was suddenly stuck inside the dryer.

Emergency services were called to the bizarre scene at 11pm as Rosie said they “save cats from trees” so maybe they would “save students from tumble dryers”.

...There are many different churches around the world but there are few like South Africa's Gabola church.

Gabola means ‘drinking’ in South Africa’s SeTswana language. Gabola church believes its congregation (giáo đoàn) connects (kết nối, liên kết) with God through consuming large amounts of alcohol during services.

South Africa is currently enduring its second period of a Covid-19 alcohol ban in an effort to ease the burden on hospitals during coronavirus.

Những bác sĩ tài hoa

dùng gần 5 lít bia cứu sống bệnh nhân ngộ độc rượu...
-----
A man dying (gần chết, hấp hối) from alcohol poisoning (ngộ độc rượu) was saved (được cứu sống) after doctors (bác sĩ) in Vietnam pumped (bơm) 15 cans worth of beer into his body.

The 48-year-old, Nguyen Van Nhat, fell unconscious (bất tỉnh) and was taken to a hospital in the central Vietnamese province of Quang Tri on December 25 where doctors found that levels of methanol—a dangerous form of alcohol—in his body were more than 1,000 times over the recommended limit.

When he arrived, medical staff at the General Hospital's Intensive Care Unit, led by Dr. Le Van Lam, immediately administered him with three cans of beer, equivalent to about 1 liter. Over the course of the day, doctors transfused a total of 15 cans of beer into the man's body at a rate of about one every hour. This slowed down the rate at which his liver processed the methanol, allowing doctors to save his life.

...There are two types of alcohol—ethanol and methanol—both of which produce similar effects and are toxic to the body to some degree. However, methanol—whose chemical structure (kết cấu hóa học) varies slightly from its close relative—is not processed as well by the liver and thus can be far more dangerous when it is consumed in relatively large quantities.

The alcohol in consumer drinks tends to be mostly ethanol, although beverages such as beer and wine often contain very small amounts of methanol as well because it is a natural byproduct of fermentation (sản phẩm phụ tự nhiên của quá trình lên men). Commercial spirit manufacturers take steps to remove methanol from their products using special technology (công nghệ đặc biệt). However, methanol is often found in bootleg liquor (rượu lậu, quốc lủi), as well as in gasoline, antifreeze, paints, thinners, adhesives, cleaning products and inks.

The Global Drugs Survey (GDS) for 2020 placed England and Scotland at the top of its international league table of how often people get so drunk that they slur their speech (nói líu nhíu) and lose their balance (mất thăng bằng).

More than 110,000 people across the world were questioned by the GDS, including 5,283 Brits, between November 2019 to February 2020 – so before the coronavirus pandemic (đại dịch) tore through daily life.

It found that many Britons were drinking at dangerous levels (mức độ nguy hiểm), with more than five per cent of under-25s admitting to having sought emergency medical treatment (điều trị y tế khẩn cấp) after getting drunk, compared to a global average of two per cent.

It’s unclear exactly what time of day the rescue occurred, but we’re guessing "beer o’clock."

A woman in Australia is being dubbed (được đặt tên) a "hero" (người hùng) after wading out into rough surf to rescue two kegs that were carried out to sea amid a recent bout of extreme weather off the coast of Queensland— even while another employee described the chaotic (hỗn độn, hỗn loạn, lộn xộn) scene as "so dangerous."

Footage of the woman’s actions was first broadcast on Australia’s 7 News,

Hãy coi tôi là một tín đồ

chủ quán bar tequila ở UK đăng ký xin làm nhà thờ (để lách lệnh phong tỏa)...
-----

James Aspell, 34, posted photos of his formal application to make his shuttered “400 Rabbits Tequila and Mezcal Cocktail Bar” in Nottingham an official place of meeting for religious worship (thờ phượng tôn giáo).

He was also shown smiling and giving the thumbs-up while mailing the form for the now-reverentially named Church of the Four Hundred Rabbits.

To get approved, he needs people to sign up and say they are part of his congregation (giáo đoàn) — telling Nottinghamshire Live that they can register as a “bunny believer” or “reverend (đại đức) of the righteous rabbits.”

“With places of worship allowed to open in all tiers we thought f–k it let’s start a religion!” he explained on Facebook to his new congregation, who would otherwise be barred under the UK’s strict lockdown rules, which would only allow him to serve takeout if he sold food.

Dear Dan,

I love eating out, including some wine with dinner—but I can't tell much difference between different bottles, and I never know which wine to order or how much to spend. When I ask waiters or sommeliers (người hầu rượu) for advice, they often give some flowery (văn hoa, hoa mỹ) descriptions about soil and accents of apricot, but these never help me figure out which wine pairs best with my meal. The whole wine-ordering business makes me feel incompetent and inadequate. Do you have any simple advice for how to order wine?
—Josh

The first thing to realize when picking from a wine list is that you are in a battlefield. This is a battle for your wallet (cuộc chiến giành ví tiền)—a fight between the restaurant, whose interest is to get as much of your money as possible right now, and your savings account. The restaurant's owners have much more data than you do about how people make their wine decisions, and they also get to set up the menu in a way that gives them the upper hand.

In particular, restaurants know that people make relative decisions: If a place includes some very expensive wines on its list (say, bottles for $200 or more), customers are unlikely to order them, but their mere presence on the list will make a $70 bottle seem much more reasonable.

Restaurants also know that many of us are cheap—but we don't want to seem cheap, which means that almost no one orders the cheapest wine on the menu. The wine of choice for cheapskates is the second-cheapest wine on the list.

Finally, the restaurants have another weapon in their arsenal: waiters and sommeliers who add to our feelings of inadequacy and confusion and, in the haze of our decision-making, can easily push us toward more expensive wines.

Now that you are starting to think about ordering wine as a battle, or maybe a game of chess, you can think ahead. Perhaps decide in advance to spend up to a certain amount of money on wine. Or tell the waiter that you have a religious rule against spending more than a set sum on wine and ask for a recommendation that would fit within your boundaries.

And if you really want to strike back, inform the waiter that you have allocated a total of $50 for the tip and wine combined—so the more you spend on wine, the less you will leave for a tip. Now let's see what they recommend.

Ngày tồi tệ

tràn 50.000 lít rượu vang đỏ ra đường

Bodegas Vitivinos in Villamalea, Spain is having a very, very bad day after one of their wine tanks busted and dumped 50,000 liters of blood red wine on the ground.

In a scene (cảnh) reminiscent (gợi nhớ tới, có xu hướng hồi tưởng) of The Shining, the wine seems to almost bubble (nổi bong bóng, nổi bọt, nổi tăm) up out of the surface of the tank before foaming and spreading out over the winery’s grounds as employees look on incapable of doing anything to stop it.

Bodegas Vitivinos was founded in 1969 and currently own 1,570 hectares of vineyards on the Iberian peninsula between the valleys of the Júcar and Cabriel rivers. They specialize in a variety of award-winning wines for every taste.

Officers were dispatched (gửi đi, phái đi, cử) to Earl’s Hideaway Lounge in Sebastian Saturday morning at approximately 1:35 a.m. about a man causing a disturbance (sự làm mất yên tĩnh, sự làm náo động; sự quấy rầy, sự làm bối rối, sự làm lo âu; sự làm xáo lộn) after the bar was closed.

Lance Waters, 27, entered the bar at approximately 1:25 a.m. and asked the manager for a drink. When the manager advised the business was closed, Waters said he was a health inspector (thanh tra y tế) and threatened (đe dọa) to shut down (đóng cửa) the business.

...When the manager gave another command for the subject to leave the business, Waters continued to argue and stated his father was the Chief of Police at Palm Bay Police Department.

Sao lại thành vấn đề nhỉ?

một bệnh nhân phải trải qua phẫu thuật "cấy phân" từ con gái vào người, để trị bệnh dạ dày tự tạo ra... bia

After undergoing a course of antibiotics (kháng sinh), a 47-year old man noticed he was feeling drunk at seemingly random intervals throughout the day — even without consuming alcohol. 

This rare condition, known as auto-brewery syndrome, occurs when the body produces alcohol inside the gut (ruột). Doctors tried to treat the man with a low-carb diet and antifungal medications, typically effective for this condition. 

But it didn't help. The patient still experienced periodic, accidental drunkenness, in one case so severe that he lost his driving license after a random police check (cảnh sát kiểm tra giấy tờ). 

What finally did work was a poop (phân) transplant (cấy ghép), according to a case study published August 18 in Annals of Internal Medicine.


The transplant was taken from the patient's 22-year-old daughter.

Bộ sưu tập rượu Macallan single malt khiến người người "mê mẩn"

A man whose father gave him 18-year-old whisky every year for his birthday is selling the collection to buy a house.

Matthew Robson, from Taunton, was born in 1992 and over the course of his life his father Pete has spent about £5,000 on 28 bottles of Macallan single malt.


The 28-year-old said it "probably wasn't" the best gift for a young boy but with "strict instructions never to open them" they had become a nest egg (trứng lót ổ (để nhử gà đến đẻ); (nghĩa bóng) số tiền để gây vốn; số tiền dự trữ (phòng sự bất trắc...)).

...His father Pete, who is from Milnathort in Scotland, said the first bottle of 1974 whisky was bought to "wet the baby's head".

Không ngờ tệ đến vậy

trời lạnh đến mức không thể giao bia được...

That's why, with a historic deep freeze gripping the Midwest, beer deliveries are on hold (hoãn) in some parts of the region.

Temperatures are so low that beer will freeze -- around 32 degrees or slightly lower, depending on alcohol content -- on the trucks before it can be delivered.

Kegged beer in trucks froze Tuesday, before temperatures even reached their coldest.

"Most of the folks up north are not delivering," says Mike Madigan, president of 

Minnesota Beer Wholesalers Association. "Most distributors are not delivering in the Twin Cities, down south and out west."

The Bjórböðin Beerspa & Restaurant might just be the best thing to come out of Scandinavia since ABBA, with patrons invited to enjoy any number of relaxing spa treatments.

Crucially, some of these treatments happen involve soaking (thấm nước, ngâm, nhúng) away those daily stresses in hot tubs filled with beer.

It’s the perfect opportunity to relax, lie back and get completely off your trolley.

You needn’t worry though - they aren’t expecting you to glug down (tiếng ồng ộc, nước đổ) on the beer-based juices you’re soaking your body in.

Instead, each tub comes complete with a beer tap that offers the user the latest tipple (rượu) from the nearby microbrewery.
