Ölmönger Special: One hundred Ölbeats - that's it?

So this blog reached its first real milestone couple of days ago with Mufloni CCCCC IPA as the 100th Ölbeat. Someone wiser than me would think and both the audience and the other Finnish beer bloggers are secretly wishing, that this is it. So we're hanging up the bottle opener...

...but before you pop the cork of your 10-year old sherry-barrel aged rare Quadrupels and start your carnal orgies and month-long celebrations, I'd like to remind you that there are some 30 already music-matched beers waiting for finishing and publishing left in the warehouse. So there is no need for the opener from the blog's point of view for a little while. What comes to opening beer bottles, one can use his mouth or eye socket, the table corner or other bottles for that purpose. And you know, I can always take the opener from the hang, use it and put it back afterwards. Pretty smart, eh?

So, sorry to let you down this time. I can see the 200th Ölbeat in the horizon, can you? Stop crying and take a look. Don't be sad and unhappy today cause you'll feel rage and fury tomorrow. Trust me.

One thing will change, though. From now on one Monday every month will be a Skitbit Monday (skit /ɧiːt/ from Swedish word 'shit', bit just to differ a bit from beat in Ölbeat). One bad beer, whenever possible from a Finnish microbrewery and otherwise from somewhere else, will be matched with an awful song. Why? There's always room to be mean once in a month and there's clearly a need to be mean towards Finnish microbreweries. And as well as a beer can be judged to be crap, a piece of music can face the destiny of transforming into a piece of shit. 


The blog will keep on rolling, as the music choice tells you:

Limp Bizkit: Rollin' (Air Raid Vehicle) (YouTube)

From the 2000 album Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water, the song was written by Fred Durst, Wes Borland, John Otto and Sam Rivers.
