Keep the Cork in It

Keep the Cork in It July 21, 2012

The Belgian style golden ale Ovila is delicious. It could also maim you.

The seal over the cork tells drinkers, “WARNING: CONTENTS UNDER HIGH PRESSURE. PLEASE OPEN WITH CARE.” And let me advise you here and now to heed this warning, folks.

Tonight, I opened a bottle of the stuff and thought a gunshot had gone off. The cork hit the ceiling so hard it left a mark. I’m surprised it didn’t leave a hole.

If you want to taste this golden deliciousness, let me suggest opening it in an open field or, better yet, a firing range.
