There is already a perfectly fine post on this topic, but the new Ricochet policy is that after a post is six months old comments are automatically closed, so we can’t comment on the original post anymore. I’m not going to copy and paste all the comments from that thread, so I would encourage you […]

It’s not like this subject hasn’t been discussed before on Ricochet, but this seems like an apt weekend to bring it up again, as it’s the second weekend in July, and therefore time for the annual Whiskey Rebellion Festival in the nearby town of Washington, PA. So it’s a good excuse (not that I ever […]

The Great Man has appeared twice in these pages the last couple days: Earlier in @clauvius’s great whiskey post and earlier still by yours truly in the Ricochet Film Society. (Not a member of the Ricochet Film Society? Joining is easy!)  Anyway, I had posted in “The Society” about W.C. Fields being offered the part of […]

Yeah, sure, thanks to the RNC-Ricochetti-CoC-Editors-Mother-Hens (you know who you are, cough @majestyk, cough @fredcole) most of our conversation at Beer NV, Reno’s finest micro-brew dispensary, will have to be blurred out. So in case any of us run for President in 2024, A.H. (After Hillary), our hetero-normal-misogynistic-patriarchal-locker-room comments will remain off the record. So […]

Tonight marks the end of one of the best shows in television history, as Justified comes to an end after six seasons. No more Raylan Givens, no more Boyd Crowder. Not gonna lie, my evenings in front of the TV won’t be the same without Boyd’s heartfelt (and mostly non-CoC-compliant) proclamations, Raylan’s dead-eye stare, and Art Mullins’ deep love […]

‘Whiskey Apocalypse’ Threatens Blogger’s Favorite Coping Mechanism

 

shutterstock_173900870The prophecies were true: a “whiskey apocalypse” threatens to ravage the lives of brown beverage producers and enthusiasts alike. Hootch experts explain that the public is downing bottles of premium whiskey faster than the barrel-aged libations can be produced.

Now, whiskey of all kinds has become a fetish object of the young, urban, and image-conscious.”

The Four Horsemen of the Whiskey Apocalypse are sporting Selvedge denim, fancy beards and ironic fedorae:
