Scandinavian Beer Mitt and other generalizations about northern Europe

23 Jan

Check out this weird mitt! 


It is a Scandinavian beer holder, made from Sheep hair, that functions to keep your hands warm while drinking beer. It’s available in two colors: brown or gray. It appeared in my email inbox and I was seriously tempted. I can’t decide if I think it is cute or hideous. Also, I live in Florida so I could not rationalize buying this thing, as it would probably just make my hand really sweaty. But nevertheless, I though it was appropriate to share on here and also to showcase the other things I know about the Scandinavian region that are probably culturally insensitive and mostly true. Here it goes:

1. Everyone wears these weird mitts to drink beer.

2. Everyone has blond hair and speaks in funny accents.

3. IKEA’s are everywhere

3. People eat swedish meatballs for all 3 meals.

4. And also they eat Swedish Fish for dessert.

5. Saunas are to Scandinavia as air conditioning is to Florida

6. Lots of skinny dipping

7. Everyone loves pickled herring

8. Favorite colors range from brown to gray.

9. Weather ranges from brown to gray.

10. And they also all have a deep appreciation for the sheep that provide wool for their beer mitts.

Check out this guy thanking his sheep for making his beer mitt possible:


This beer mitt is available for 2 more days and while they don’t endorse me, I am hoping they will see this and send me a free mitt (in gray)…(but I’d take brown too) for my lovely depiction of Scandinavia and this mitt.


Bottoms up!

Check out this new beer technology – Very Cool!

Whats going on here?

44 pints in one minute, that’s what!

How does this crazy contraption work?

The cups come with a hole in the bottom ,  the cups are placed on the bottoms up machine and they fill with beer in two seconds (literally two seconds), a FDA approved magnet then pulls down and seals off the cup and ta-da,  a delicious beer is born.  Simple,  yet genius. Why didn’t I think of this?

Why is this awesome?

Fast beer. Short lines. Enough said.

Wait, not enough said. You get a magnet too. Companies and football teams can put their logos on the magnets so you have to look at it every time you take a sip of beer.

Does this justify having to pay $10 for a Bud Light at sports arenas?

No, nothing could justify that, but beer and sports goes together like girls and great beers – keep reading my blog.
