A Barrel Full of Beer Memes, #2
If you've ever been to a Cricket Hill Friday night open house or run into Rick Reed at a beer festival then you're likely familiar with "THEY ARE LYING TO US!" or "THE NUMBER ONE SELLING WATER IN NEW JERSEY IS COORS LIGHT!" typically said with that kind of volume by Mr. Reed himself. Anyone ever stopping by a Cricket Hill table at a beer festival is sure to have heard others talking about the now legendary rants of Rick Reed, owner/brewmaster at Cricket Hill Brewery in Fairfield, NJ. Over a year ago, video surfaced on YouTube (of course) capturing one these rants during a Friday Night Open House and Tasting. From "Cricket Hill is the finest beer made on the planet earth" to "Drink what you want, not what you're told to drink" and ratcheting up to "You have been brainwashed since you were children" and "They think we are stupid", it's easy to see how quickly this viral video made it around the Internet and into Beer Meme status. And, remember, "They tell us that it's been frost-brewed; It means NOTHING!!" So, without further ado, here it is in all of its bellowing awesomeness!
