It’s British Open time in my ancestral home of Scotland. My peep thought He’d do me and the game of golf (hey, He broke 100 once in his life and then went to the second nine) a tribute so He helped Himself to a Bottle of British beer. Or so He thought.
What could be more British? It has Royal Lions, says “Union Jack”, and everything screams British Isles. On closer inspection, the bottle says Firestone-Walker Brewing Company, Paso Robles, California! If you’re going to brew a beer in the US, don’t copy someone else-it just ain’t right. Make a good American India Pale Ale and be proud of it. When he was in Panama for a year, they (Destiladora Nacional) made “Scotch Whisky” very close to the canal (the canal water was better). They should have tried to make a world class Panamanian rum.
