What we got here is a bunch of nutters basically ‘bagging‘ beer all over the world. It’a great craic and they share a lot of their spirit of adventure with the Bagging Scotland team. They’ve got a website which tells you all about their adventures www.beertickersfilm.com. It’s obviously a laugh but there will be ‘medical’ and ‘moral guardian’ people throwing their hands in the air, suggesting it’s encouraging people to drink beer and have fun! Outrageous!
If you tie this in with those cheeky guys at www.brewdog.com brewing the World’s strongest (Tactical Nuclear!) beer, it’s clear that brewing is going through an exciting period of change. It could be argued that a lot of mainstream brewers would be quite happy to have the world drink three colours of beer, in about half-a-dozen generic flavours.
Now, I absolutely LOVE a pint of mass-produced Guinness but surely variety has to be the spice of life? That’s why anyone that champions trying out lots of different varieties, has to be saluted!
Stephen Fry says the two most dangerous words in the English language are ‘Health’ and ‘Safety’ and with much Health and Safety bonkers going on, it great that people like the Beertickers and Brewdog are taking a slightly ‘f*ck-you’ stance to Political Correctness, over-regulation and in the words of Brewdog,the ‘nanny state’.
Well, we love them, we love their approach and we love Mavericks of every kind. Here at Bagging Scotland, we salute them!
