No it\’s fucking not

The beer is made in large vats in the White House kitchen and then left to distill for several weeks

You don\’t bloody distill beer.

Jeez the Telegraph has gone downhill since they made me and other bloogers redundant, hasn\’t it?

  1. Telegraph pieces by Craig Brown, still stuck on the wall and provoking laughter many years on, remain the only physical evidence my parents used to take the newspaper. He’s not done badly since leaving – at the 2012 Press Awards Craig Brown was the biggest individual winner becoming the first journalist to win three awards in a single night.” The downside of believing the Telegraph is worse for his passing, though, is that one must believe there is something worth reading in the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday…

  2. Reading the comments under most Lean articles, the man’s apparently thoroughly f-able. Also c-able, b-able & generally able in all sorts ways.

  3. Maybe the White House beer is distilled, tastes bloody awful but no-one has the guts to admit that to Mr Obama…

  4. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but the Telegraph’s been going downhill since the Barclays took over. Milord Black of Crossharbour was a fine newspaperman.

  5. Loosely speaking, whiskey (with the e ) is distilled from beer. Maybe y’man’s inadvertently discovered the White House moonshine operation.

  6. They’re entire numpties , witnessed by the decision to keep on Hodges over you. You’re better off with Forbes!

  7. Bloke: Is whiskey distilled from hopped beer? I’m informed by some German friends that if you distill a beer (in the Weinheitsgebot sense) the result is called Bierschnapps.

    The Telegraph, of course, meant ferment. If only they hadn’t sacked all the middle aged plum noses.

  8. Extraordinary that The Tele got rid of Tim, especially since he will work for peanuts. Hiring him looked like a possible revival of the paper to me. Sacking him looks like the Tele really is just another failing centist paper heading for the scrapheap.

    >You’re better off with Forbes!

    I may be wrong but I don’t think Forbes pays Tim.

    Tim adds: Forbes pays me very well indeed thank you. €5,000 and change for August alone….

  9. Tim adds: Forbes pays me very well indeed thank you. €5,000 and change for August alone….

    So how much sweeter is that paycheque knowing that Murphy had a chance at the same thing and cocked it up?

  10. Actually, once beer is in the bottle, very little fermentation takes place. However, there is a bit, during which added sugar is converted into carbon dioxide to give the beer its fizz. This is known as conditioning. Most homebrews will age very nicely after the initial conditioning, getting better with age.

  11. Thinking out loud, how much does continued employment/advertising revenue affect what you (or other bloggers) say?

    You were prepared to annoy DT readers by suggesting that global warming was happening, and that a carbon tax was a Good Idea. Could you have said that immigration was a Good Thing and a sign that people wanted to come here (apart from you of course, who preferred EU subsidised Portugal – cheap shot I admit)?

    Tim adds: On immigration I could have said what I liked. There are limits though. As and when they were running a campaign against the relaxation of planning law I wouldn’t then write a piece demanding that we concrete over the green belt.

    The basic rules (and this applies anywhere) are that you should act like a guest at a dinner party. You can correct, very gently, your host’s misapprehensions. You can disagree and if you do so the better part is to change the subject. But you cannot insult nor make off with his daughter/wife.
