Beer of the Week

Ah yes, a good ol' drop this one. Coopers Sparkling Ale. Cloudy, gritty and good. Sediment in the bottom of the bottle...do you leave it or mix it? I prefer a gentle inversion to mix it around, seems to give it more kick. I remember the first time I drank this South Australian legend, it must've been about 88, waiting to go on stage to play bass with a couple of mates' little musical combo. I had three or four while they did the first acoustic set, and then I got up. My vocals were rendered useless, and my fingers weren't much better. I didn't realise that it packs 5.8% alcohol, and I paid the price. Had a bloody great night though! Don't know how the audience liked it, but I didn't care, as I was very, very drunk...

Brett my friend. The sediment you have noticed in your Coopers is actually a special health suppliment known as Testostrogeniopium. This substance is actually quite legal and is not on the U.C.I. prohibited list. The addidtive is made from the refined under arm scrapings of 47 year old Venezualan fruit picking women. Enjoy your beer.
