Wine and Beer Makers Wait for Recovery
"The pandemic started in March. I'd like the two of you to rate your alcohol consumption in one of the high Okay, uh, given on a percentage basis, Tucker, if you look at it, on average weekly basis, alcohol consumption in your household. It's a yes today today. Or like marks throughout the pandemic, So like when this first broke, I was having a glass or two every day just to use my nerves. But now I was that was that during the show or after Foa after you know, after I don't drink during the work of anything, Not yet, at least, um, but, you know, as of today, like, you know, I'm Once in a while during the week. I'll have a glass of wine randomly, but then on weekend, I'll just you know. I've been a glass of wine or a beer a night throughout all of this, which is definitely higher than my previous alcohol consumption. But there is no You know, weekend where? On drinking a bottle of wine with my wife on having two or three glasses. Journalist making is just that consistent glass tonight, right? Yes. So in terms of my consumption down for most the pandemic just when when your wife is pregnant, and you can't go anywhere like you just feel kind of weird about drinking alone Plus that look that you get Yeah. Have you gotten that? Look, you're drinking a nice glass of wine, and she's pregnant. Sit on the couch and just glaring at you. I've got you Just hold it up. And you're like. Oh, this is so wonderful, isn't it? You know, like you said, you didn't mind. Yeah, I would. I didn't need much sushi or drink much wine during the two different nine months that my wife is pregnant. But I would say, post baby, I think we're actually just about back to normal, like well, normally do like a bottle of wine on like a Friday or something like that. Maybe another one on a Saturday but generally don't really do much during the week. So we're about the same. But what wine and beer makers are saying is that even though consumers are buying Mohr stuff for home consumption, it still isn't enough to offset the fact that they're not going out. And drinking in the same volumes, which you could make a case right now be such a bad thing for our livers. But for these companies, you know they're looking at this saying, Hey, what's the deal here? I also do wonder for companies that don't have a hard seltzer brand. If that's eating into it as well. I mean, you know, we're in slightly different positions that maybe we were 10 years ago, Chuck, but I mean, we're I n the pandemic. And I were a 22 year old. I would imagine my alcohol consumption would be down very significantly, compared Tio what I was drinking at that stage in my life. I think mine would be higher. 22 years. I don't think so. The only thing constraining my alcohol consumption of 22 was the price. Yeah, Way cheaper to drink at home. It's fair. Oh, yeah. See for me. It was just I I didn't really drink unless I was at a bar. Oh, like hell up 22 year old tuck. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah, clearly struggling with with the restaurants and bars closed. There is just not nearly as much profit for any of these companies.

"I mean, I think that I mean I'm not going to get here if you want to fucking put it in a can and try and tell them it's not going to happen. But I mean if you want to if you want to sell it and you're on Tap Room, I think that's I mean I used to agree with that at the same time though. If you put me in a tap room right now put me off obviously with a driver you put me a few beers in I'm getting a little bit chatty and you hand me a glass of like this Vibe Pumpkin Spice Girls. Or something like this something that's just different that makes me want to try it like hell. Yeah, I'll try it. Like I I'm a drinker like I I like to try things are new when they're exciting and that are different than what other people are doing and right I don't care if that is a Seltzer. But if you put me in that same tap room and say have you tried our lime Seltzer like no. No, thanks. Like I'll I'll try whatever that next beer is that I'm yeah, but something like this or like a pumpkin spice or whatever it is that these people are doing that are different. Like I'm I'm okay with that wage, you know, you can still be creative with a Seltzer. Yeah. I think that's definitely the case especially if you're able to get you know, the quality of fruit ingredients and brought to you know, the kind of if you're if you're if you're able to make you know stuff that is rated very highly on untappd with when it's a fruit beer. I think you can probably do the same thing cranky. A bit easier, you know to kind of dad that fruit to a little bit simpler base. You know, this this smells great. Yeah, and they're also may I mean it does it does have incredibly high ratings on on that wonderful website, you know that one still use that we should drink this last one as we wrap up. Let's do age another Halloween themed beer. Our Johnny has joined us. You guys can't see unless you're watching the the secret video feed that we have but this is one of his favorite birthday and it's actually in a bottle which is at ease and we'll talk about that in a second. I think we might of teased that a little now. Nope. That was the show we lost track. So I did recently a showdown at Darkness with Eric and we talked about a lot of stuff. It was a really fun show and then lost the show because I'm an idiot off. And had to try to recreate the excitement of that show the next day on the phone and I think live we talked about this beer and it being in bottles a lot. And then the next day we didn't even mention. I just thought so, this is Mayan Sacrifice from Darkness Brewing not made with actual mine's not made with actual Minds. It is an imperial golden milk stout with caramel coffee cake Co in pasilla, Chile Peppers and Maverick chocolate. It is golden and color. It does taste like ass down..

"It's their shelter, you know? Yeah, it's but it's to me it's not it's it's a different category than the other kind of Seltzer stuff. That's out there. It's not white claw. Yeah. It's not even in that category minute. It definitely finishes a little bit lighter a little cleaner than a beer would but like that first, you know sip it's all fruit. Yeah. It's it's not that far off from home a lot of the pretty beers that you would get but then quickly changes. Yeah, and that's fun. Exactly. Right and I think that's what's been neat. Honestly. Like I said, I was I am a skeptic at least as far how it fits into my little world, but they definitely we we ordered a shitload of this stuff now we and it made a lot of it's gone. We we have very little of that thousand aught to it's good, you know, like a lot of Seltzer's I find myself wanting to put like a over ice with like a really shot of rum or something and it's like it tastes like it's like wage start of a cocktail to me. It doesn't taste like it's doesn't like it's done to me I guess is my I want to do some more to it. Like I want to I see what you mean it just especially the filters broadly wage. That it is people always for a while. I mean black cloth been around for a long time and a lot of times 2013 or something was when it was first bought a 2000. I mean like I've I it wasn't in Ohio, but I heard like in like first developed like two thousand seven or eight that's that's possible and then like it finally like just I saw I think I saw it in Kroger says I think it is a 2015 was probably when it started coming around, maybe mm. I don't know maybe it could have been but it could have been 2013. I think you're will have like a pretty in-depth Seltzer show of some kind coming in the near future. I think it's going to be on YouTube though. I think yeah, but all that to say is that I wish brought my horse get celebrities like drags. Why do I want the easiest cocktail to make in a can right? Well, that's it. I think that's also been so my confusion with it. Like if you're a brewery that does sell liquor and things like that and you've got a soda gun behind your barn wage. Got Vodka sitting right there. Like why the hell are you making a Seltzer? Like just somebody orders? Typically I can do that, you know and then know, there you go yourself there. But then this is something that's a little bit different. I I don't know. It's we live in a weird world as all I can say yeah, that's definitely the case. I mean again, I can't I really feel like I might have been a little critical of fact, I have zero problem with anyone putting filter. It makes me know and filter.

The Obviously-Going-To-Die Stocks
"We're going to start with the stock of the day. Don't call it a comeback bed bath and beyond has been here for years. It's just all that time someone else was running the company but now that Mark Trittin has been in the Corner Office for about a year. We're seeing days like today second quarter profits came in exponentially higher than expected. Same store sales were positive for the first time in four years. The stock is up more than thirty percent this morning. I'm assuming at least part of what we're seeing with the stock is some shortsellers saying that's it. I. Think. I'm. Probably. Bed, bath, and congratulations to march written and Beth by best buy bed bath and beyond. For this quarter, March, written formerly of target, of course, and a few other places before that, I think Nordstrom's and I believe. He had a stint at Nike to could be misquoting. This bed bath and beyond is in a group of companies retailers that I like to call the obvious obviously going to die crowd. And the funny thing about companies that are obviously going to die when they get the right mix of management decision making and in some help from the environment and you know just a little bit of because no one's more aware of a company's struggles at least no one should be more aware of a company struggles then the people inside the company. And that's when you plan your strategy. What are our tools? How can we navigate our way through whatever we found ourselves in business is not easy and certainly for this group retailers that I'm Gonna I'm GONNA hold up. Bed Bath and beyond as one Chris. But you know how about Game Stop Game Stop. The seller of video game systems and Software that of course is going to be the next blockbuster. Right if they writing that headline since two thousand and nine, how `Bout Michael's the craft store everybody knows I. Y has an Amazon run over. And the granddaddy of all of these. Companies that are obviously going to fail. They're obviously going to be taken bricks and mortar is dead is best buy which just before the podcast we were talking about how? How many listeners? Realize, that best buy has been at ten bagger over the past decade they went through some struggles they brought in new management. WHO had a plan? and. I'm sure they were mocked and I'm sure people were skeptical and they executed on that plan and best buy, which was a sub twelve dollar stock in. Two Thousand Ten two thousand eleven is today roughly one hundred twenty dollars stock. And so when you see. I'm a kick myself a little bit on dust by iron best buy bed bath and beyond his too many bees. Bed Bath and beyond. I actually did a little bit of work about a year ago as I was discussing with one of our with one of our foolish coworkers. About this basket of Taylor's who are sure to die. And we had this one. We had game stop we have Michael on the docket and I went through you know what this company's history of cash flow was and what they've done with it and how they've raise capital, and this is before Mr Trenton came on but I. It laid the groundwork for someone with. A better vision to come in and knocked the ball out of the park which you've seen today and and best bed bath, and beyond is as we speak it's now a six th bagger since March of this year and so in the a roughly a year ago when I did my work because I was vigorously debating co I pointed out that in the previous six years here was bed bath and beyond had produced four point two, billion dollars in free cash flow. They had also issued one point five billion dollars in debt and debated smart about the debt because the debts. Basically staggered I think is a ten twenty and thirty years. and. They have to pay it back anytime soon, and they had gone on a massive buyback program. They've they've retired a ton of their shares. Now. Slowly melting ice cube no one's going to want to own this business what have you. But at the time the stock was about ten eleven dollars the company is training but four times enterprise value of free cash flow. that. That is rock bottom fools that is something that is going to go away. That's what the market is telling you. Flash, forward, to today and oh positive cops. Oh. We have a plant. They've they've suspended their dividend they've they've halted their. They've halted their. They suspended the dividend halted their share buyback plan I believe in. April. But with this. With this. report, they have generated a ton of cash flow. They've deployed it smartly they took down some temporary which they had out as part of the PARCO vid. They have bought back twenty percent of that long dated not in any danger to come calling debt they bought that back at a discount. Which is brilliant. They. So they're down to their down net debt down by about thirty percent from where they started the year. They have a store optimization program, which is something that a lot of these retailers the slowly melting ice cube crowd will call them. They are reducing their store count 'cause they don't need it because they can move to ECOMMERCE, which they've done a little bit they can move to. The geography is able he served by less stores and you see a lot of. Traffic that previously went through one store transitions to another and. They are steal a Ron grosses them here they are firing on all cylinders and I'm not sure. Anyone. Thought is coming. I am I am both thrilled that they are doing this they're having success because everyone loves a comeback. I'm less thrilled that you own it and I don't. But. That's mainly because I had this in my hand a year ago Chris and I'm holding it up. The skull of York. And and I'm looking at it and I didn't at least put a little field position because as I said, at the time training for four times free cash flow that is close to no-brainer territory for me. So two other quick data points before we go to our next story. Not. Surprisingly digital sales of big driver this quarter. That goes hand in hand with the store closures so Another smart move by Trittin and his team. And also Happy to see that they're you know suspending the dividend that they're. Suspending the sticking with the we're not going to buy back shares. I'm also happy to see they're not offering guidance. Their New Orleans. No need to at this point. Let's move on the third quarter sales, for Pepsi, grew five percent and. Kind of like we saw three months ago snacks and some of the beverages particularly the Seltzer. Part of their portfolio helping to make up for the fact that somebody restaurants are closed. So many sports and entertainment venues are closed and. That's that's the stock is basically flat and this kind of flat for all of twenty twenty but. Nice to see that the the salty snack part of the business is making up for the sort of the tried and true Pepsi part of the business. Gilead household particularly the soon to be sixteen year. Old Member of the Gillies household has been doing his part to. To to help with the salty snacks portion and shareholders. Thank him. Yeah I was GONNA? Say. You know dude. There are other food groups other than Doritos. Look it was a perfectly acceptable boring quarter from a perfectly acceptable boring company and and I think you know Chris but maybe some of the listeners not know. For, me to call a company perfectly boring from for me. That's a compliment because I like businesses that are boring. Not Terribly exciting person myself I enjoy. Investments in companies that just actually do what we expect them to do, and essentially just get it done quarter after quarter. Pepsi is not GonNa. You know if you'RE LOOKING FOR PEPSI TO BE A. Ten bagger. You know anytime soon like the aforementioned by we mentioned earlier. That's not gonNA happen. They are just a steady bedrock performer for your portfolio and we all need a few of those. So we can go after the more exciting things in our portfolio. Yes. So it was it was A. It was a boring it was a boring quarter but boring is nice because boring boring says, oh, we end up four four plus percent on. Organic revenue growth total revenue growth went up five plus percent. EPS Is up ten percent year-over-year just for the quarter. It's still down for year to date, but of course, Mindy Stan why because the previous quarter? Cova. no-one no-one was new what was going on? So we kind forgive that. They are they're pointing towards the full year. They did give guidance their point point to a full year of approximately four percent revenue growth approximately five fifty core earnings. Stocks at about one hundred, forty bucks. So it's not cheap. But it's not terribly expensive, and again, this is one of those widows and orphans stocks. You can buy put it away and we'll see you when you retire. Hugh Johnston, who's the CFO at Pepsi? Granular on CNBC this morning talking about because when you think about all of the food and beverages they have across their portfolio he got granular talking about the new cheetos macaroni and cheese saying you know they're trying to keep up with demand as a fan of both cheetahs and macaroni and cheese I haven't tried it yet but I can see why it's popular. Any. Do they give any color on the? Two. Portals that they were direct to consumer sites that they launched earlier this year snacks dot com and Pantry shop dot com. Sadly, Chris they did not at least in the conference call or the press the presser maybe in the ten Q I haven't read the ten q yet obviously but. Yeah no snacks dot com I can confirm both of those sites are open and accepting offers as of this moment. SNACKS DOT COM and Pantry shop I think is an interesting one because they are. You know you are buying your you're you're buying all of your Pepsi Slash quaker products. Simultaneously in in in the various groups. So if you want your everyday Pantry, you want to get your your oatmeal and your healthy. Your healthy Chia bars and your rice cakes do people still eat rice cakes and if so why? You can get all those delivered at the same time or your snack package your breakfast package You know it's it's interesting to to have it delivered. I I'M NOT A. I I'm one of the three people in North America is still doing own grocery shopping. So I'm probably target here but I know a lot about the people how to use it and I think probably if I let my as I mentioned a sixteen year old note that this thing existed. It might be his only source of nourishment. So yeah, don't don't. On, the first time I went to that website I kind of went crazy to the point where in the box showed up to two days later even my kids were just like. This is a lot of snacks and was like, yeah I may have ordered too many but but I regret nothing. Playboy. Enterprises is returning to the public markets after nearly a decade and because I was are out of fashion, playboy is going to be doing this through a speck. Mountain Crest acquisition is a current special purpose acquisition company that is going to be taking playboy public through a reverse merger and wants to deal is done that company where the ticker is MC. ABC? Is. The playboy name and the ticker symbol P L B Y? I guess I, I saw this story and I thought, okay I'd that's one way for playboy, which is a private company and has been since twenty eleven. I. Guess That's one way to raise money. I, I, I'm hard pressed though to think that. The second round of playboy being a public company is going to go any better for the company and for investors than it did the first time around. That was my initial take as well, and you say it's one way to raise money I'd say it's one way for insiders to cash out. Tomato Tomato. The more I think about this though. I could be spectacularly wrong and it wouldn't be the first time. This might be quite this might be interesting I can see. I can see a number of thing, and I just find this interesting from a number of re. I as you point out. Yes, playboy. Is private the SPEC the Special Purpose Acquisition Company Mountain Crest Acquisition, company. It's out there. Now it's got. It's a walking wallet got a bunch of cash their stocks over ten dollars specs go at ten bucks. There's nothing you can. You can go buy today Chris if you want. And You can just sit there and wait until the transaction is completed in q one. If. You WANNA own playboy. So, playboy today is not playboy of the past for thing, magazines have died. So, there are no issues of the iconic famous magazine. These no regularly published issues and I believe they went to quarterly publishing versus. Monthly publishing before that. So what playboy is trying to be or this new iteration trying to be a licensing company and they're calling it across four major categories they're saying sexual wellness, which I'm just going to skip to the next one, which is style and apparel which is. Apparel. and accessories for men and women globally gaming and lifestyle also digital gaming hospitality and spirits. So you can get yourself some playboy-branded Bourbon. And beauty and grooming, which is fragrance skin care grooming cosmetics for men and women. Okay. That sounds interesting. They're not a publishing company more avoiding that and I guess they have a bunch of online stuff as well which. Tell people they can go look on their spare time but. They are calling themselves a streamlined high growth business. The company has four hundred million in cash flow contract through the next eighteen years. and has products available for sale and in ten thousand major retail stores. In the US, this is a brandon company. Now, now, what you think of the brand and what you associate with the brand, the iconic a bunny ears brand, of course. Is Is. is going to be probably a nuanced and varied. I can understand why some people. Would not want to do with this brand I completely understand that is not. Bend the most shall we say progressive brand in history? It has fostered some. Attitudes, particularly women that. I think it's fair to say some would find distasteful and I I completely understand why? And for those people, they're just not going to be shareholders and that's that's fine. But what I find interesting about this if this, if the licensing deal and we have, we've already had a certain dry run of this in. Do you know the magazine Maxim? It was. So it's a men's lifestyle magazine, girly pictures, and whatever it was bought by an entity called big holdings. I'm going to say eight nine years ago. With the goal of they went into change it from the the lad magazine into more of a lifestyle brand licensing deal what playboys doing. Now. I mentioned earlier it's important to have You know leaders businesses, you respect and trust big lorry holdings is not one of those businesses but I do know that they even though they're circulation sales are down significantly there they have turned that profitable on a small scale with the licensing strategy. I suspect the playboy will do a better job. And It will depend on the valuation coming out but you know when analogy I might throw up as. As a comparison is. Franchising businesses in the in the restaurant space. So a restaurant brands international, which owns importance and Burger King. Dunkin brands, which of course owns your beloved Dunkin donuts. Those are those are check cashing businesses, they they sell the franchise to a Franchisee. And then take tax six percent of their gross sales and royalties every month plus x percent for advertising they sell you a system and so those are very asset light cash-rich capital Genita- businesses. And part of me wonders here it's obviously not the same as selling. Coffee and whatever. But part of me wonders if that is what this business will look like, and if they are truly in the growth business and the cash generation business, this might be an interesting opportunity. And you just hit on what I think is the most interesting thing to watch. Once it becomes a public entity again, the high growth aspect of this because now we're going to see Now, we're GONNA see through quarterly reports. Okay. Are you growing? Because that's one of those things where we investors and the market in general get to decide what we consider to be high growth And I again I had I had your initial take which was. Oh please. Like if it didn't work the first time. It's going to work less well this time. The more I read about like. I'M GONNA keep an eye on this. Curiosity. Jim Gillies always talking to you. Thanks for being here.
In The Morning (MM #3466)
"The Maisonette with Kevin Nation. I'm one of those folks who if I see something on the Internet talking about health and things to do and try to better yourself. I'll look at I won't necessarily be due but I'm always trying to at least think about bettering my health and I've always seen some things about the first thing you should do when get up in the morning now nutritionists and doctors are agreeing the first thing you should do its drink a glass of water off matter whether you're thirsty or not. There's something about the body needing to be replenished rehydrated from overnight when you were sleeping. It doesn't matter whether you're actually feeling it or not. Your body needs to be rehydrated. So the best thing I could do first thing in the morning get up and drink a glass of water. Now the good news if you don't necessarily like water out of the tap, you can have a seltzer water you can have something that just water-based the more you can rehydrate yourself before you do anything else the better off you'll be so drink a glass of water before you drink your coffee. Yeah. I'm not too thrilled about it either although really even though it's maybe not the first thing I do in morning before I ingest anything else water was always the first beverage maybe I'm on my way to health. We know better than Thursday.

With Jockstrap-Scented Candles, Babe Wine Wants to Bring the NFL Home
"Wouldn't want to spend twenty nine dollars on a candle that smells like a jockstrap well, plenty of people. But Hey, if that's your thing now you can babe wind. The official wine of the NFL has launched a line of Senate. Candles intended to bring the entire football experience including the locker room into your home. The twenty twenty NFL season kicked off last Thursday night, and with only a few exceptions, fans can't be there in person this year. So what better way to experience the joys of life football from the sweaty jock straps to the smell of overpriced eighteen dollar Nachos then to invest in Sports Senate Kennels at least. So goes the thinking of the marketing folks at bay wine babe is a can wine owned by anheuser Busch inbev parent company. Of Budweiser, when founder Josh Ostrovsky started the company back in Twenty fifteen it was his goal to make babe the bud light of the wine world know Somalia needed here guys behind the cheeky ads. Is a strategy intended to pump up online sales and the funny bones of Anheuser Busch's most coveted hard to win over market of millennials. As we've reported here before beer sales have been flat lining for some time younger drinkers in particular are increasingly turning the cocktails hard seltzer wine and wine spritzers although it's still the tiniest of all spirits, categories, sales of canned wine or bubbling over over the twelve months ending this June off premises canned wine sales grew by almost eighty percent according to Nielsen off premises. Sales are all those purchased outside bars and restaurants by the way clearly where all the action has been happening the last six months. All these stats are serious business for Babe wines huge parents searching as it is for ways to continue growing as its core product beer struggles. But let's go back to the locker room. Shall we examined the connection between Anheuser Busch's falling beer sales and candles that smell like musk and men's deodorant? Well, no one's buying the bud light of wine for the way it's grapes are grown now they're buying it 'cause babe wine is an instagram hit Ostrovsky is better known by his instagram handle the fat Jewish. He has ten million followers. The brand has one hundred, eighty thousand. So far Ostrovsky is nothing if not both funny and provocative, the brand partnered with dating out, bumble this summer to pay the moving costs to people sick of the X.'s they got stuck living with during the pandemic the two companies mocked up a bright pink truck emblazoned with the sign, your XS canceled babe and Bumbler here to help you move on literally. To enter the contest participants needed to what else tag themselves on the Instagram Post like the signature background in all of its ads, babes, stunts, or designed for instagram especially to attract younger women market anheuser-busch fervently wants to grow. If it's not obvious by now the candles themselves may makes some money. You can buy all three for sixty nine dollars, but they're primarily an attention getting device it to get you to stop scrolling in hit the buy button on a box of canned rose eh read or Pino Griego it's online marketing shrewd. You might say but it's not like babe wind has the wind can market to itself. There are at least one hundred brands of canned wine as makers scrambled to get a sip of this growing market while no single brand stands out as the most popular one that poses a challenge to babe wine is yes. Way Rosa like babe wine. Yes. Way Rosie was launched on Instagram in two thousand thirteen friends Eric Blumenthal and Nikki Hugo near started as an instagram account celebrating Rosie wine. Selling actual y came later the fashion editor and art director soon had a hit on their hands in twenty eighteen there bottled Rosa caught on at target just this year they began selling their grenache blandon Pastel pink cans. Yes Way Rosa doesn't have the NFL stamp of approval minds you but with almost no one in the stands that stadium branding is far less valuable than it would have been pre pandemic and that gives the women behind Guess Way Rosaiah a lot more runway. But they're going to have to come up with something pretty startling to steal attention back for turf, Nacho and. jockstrap scented candles.
The Aldi Haul
"Today we are jumping in there's another episode that is a hall episode. So today's the Aldy Hall. GonNa make the joke, the hall yeah. I know I always make the joke it's I. Think I'm over the joke. Brought it back. I love all the all the is actually a new discovery for me, and now I describe it as like a less expensive trader Joe's. Isn't that kind of what it's like pretty much which is crazy because trader Joe's is already inexpensive. Like yeah. It's like the dollar store trader joes well, I. Mean the last time I said it was like smartandfinal meets the dollar store and some people got upset about that comparison. But like I love the dollar store and by the way, people need to know that the food that you get at the dollar store is not older expired in some cases it's a lot of big brands that are specifically making foods for the dollar store. So I don't know that but I a big fan of the dollar store. So I take that as a compliment if somebody would say that anyway, that's just me. But today we are going through a whole bunch of products I went to all the last week. I purchased don't know like nine hundred item. So. A lot of the stuff that I bought were holding off in a few more weeks. We'll do it all the hall I'm GonNa. Go back to all the fill it out. But I, I mean I literally got like fifteen things and we're going to try one, seven, eight, eight of them today. It's going to be tough for me to not eat that one thing that's in the bag that we're gonNA wait on because it just I can I look at it every day and I wanna eat it I'm guessing it's peanut butter flavored Jamie please hide this from him. It'd be having other PB item today. It's a little bit of a weird. I am I'm actually really excited with that one. So I'm excited about everything today zero. All right. So before we jump in and start eating everything in sight Mike, what you got. Are you ready for your new favourite fall drink? Viva Seltzer has just come out with a new flavor. Do you WANNA guess. So it's fall themed. So the is it the I think it's V. visit. Oh, it's. I don't know. Could. Use this Jamie what does it looks like the va I don't know. Whatever you want to her five. The new flavor is pumpkin spice. So it's a hard seltzer pumpkin spice flavors. It looks like right now it's only being sold at Kroger Stores and Kentucky Tennessee and Ohio. But I'm sure we'll go nationwide wouldn't go nationwide. By, the way I don't know if you know this but the vive or. Whatever it's called their heart seltzer drinks or one hundred calories and two grams of carbs. Yeah. That's not bad except the only bad part of that is hard. Seltzer Gross. That's my. I don't I am not a fan and the the idea of like a pumpkin spice flavor that sounds terrible to me. Might be harsh right now no I feel like the only excuse for a pumpkin spice flavored cocktail as if it's like a frozen sweet. Type of like creating. Yes. Creamy. So the article that I that I read this from, they got a taste of it and they said it's amazing like it's and they thought the same thing like it would be terrible and they loved it so. I will give it a try I'm GONNA give it the benefit of. And a our little community of Woodland Hills is in the news like big time in the news Amazon fresh. The one that we have that we've been getting our deliveries from there finally, opening it up to walk in customers. It's the first in the country like no other Amazon, fresh stores allowing customers walk inside except for ours right now. And it's by appointment only I guess you have to go on and make an appointment. And, the store does have cashiers but they they encourage you to use their dash cart our showing Jamie this the other day. So it's a cart with a screen on it and every time you pick up an item, you scan the item on the car and then charges you on your Amazon Account. So I'm imagining it to punch in your code or something when you get get the cart. And I'm not, GonNa go to any stores as of it on my comfortable yet. But I don't know might be something you might WanNa check out judgy when you say You might want to go into a store. That sounds cool. I. The thing I know about Amazon fresh is that whenever I order anything, there's like for every item, there's like eighty eight pieces of packaging. It's like they wrap everything in plastic and in cooler bag, and then in a brown bag and then box. But maybe if you go to the store, you won't get all the packaging but I'm excited actually so I will check it out

"The lowest calorie one we've had by a significant margin, and it's only four percent by volume ABC. gluten-free, okay, so we're back in the realm of clear Seltzer is here. WHO's going I? I'm getting some tastes now so. It's very light. The the flavors are light so again. This is my preference. I like a little bit later of right. I want something too sweet too powerful, so this nice and light I get the cranberry. We'll see other people say, but I don't get the lime as much. I definitely do get the cranberry. The carbonation seems a little low I. Don't know if we've reported in a cup, but it's got low carbonation super easy drinking light. It's gotTa Lower AB so quick aside. It's important to look at the Seltzer. ABC's because most will be five percent, but if you think about it, one percenting editor, so a four percent is considerably lower of an ABC to have for Seltzer. If you had six you, you'd have something really strong. Think about six percent. Beer market is a strong beer so I thinking about that five percent and anything below that I think you're going to have a little bit later taste. I mean this is pretty good. In my opinion, the flavor was very white, and the carbonation was very light, which seems odd because there were quite a few bubbles when I poured it. Okay, so having a little bit of this and I'm looking forward to try another flavor. I feel like this up to the promise of white clock could be in that. It's neutral and not sweet without tasting flagpole, and so that's what I like about. It is that it lives up to that promise without the metallic taste. The grand vote people so odd side better lasts. Less breakwater better less less less white claw, better better better better all right, so it stops it why claw goes into the number three spot people who's going to do the honors of putting the lake lives into the wall of order in the fistfight twenty twenty.

Are Toxins Hiding in My Personal Care Products
"Melissa, thank you so much for being with us today. Hi, thank you for having me I'm so excited to be here. Loved Otehr I've been using the dough tear products for over seven years now, and it's very been very impactful family. That is incredible eleven years, so you've been around almost since the beginning. Yeah Yeah. I'm the one year anniversary. That's amazing so with this topic of detoxifying your personal care, one of the biggest questions that I think a lot of people have is what kinds of ingredients should I watch out for and my personal care products. That's a really great question and a really hard one two, and because the list is so long so as I think about that I think about what are some of the big things that when I pick up a product of the store and I look at the ingredients label what I, really not going to touch with a ten foot pole in those would be things that contain any form of parabens. Any fragrances because those synthetic fragrances are so hard on the body Rhode. Walking Down The candle I'll some people. Might, get headaches from it in some people don't I when I was younger, I didn't I didn't understand why people would get headache I thought that something was wrong with them and what I came to realize later was something was wrong with me. But it was because I had such a tactic lifestyle that my senses. My sensory like my receptors were not picking up on the I should be having a reaction to those kind of things so now that cleansed my roddy now I'm like. Oh, now see what they're saying. So I do try to stay away from synthetic fragrances in particular. some other things, too. That I look out for like the sulfates and invalidates I mean the list is so long, but and that's why the list is so long is because so many of these products or ingredients chemicals. Have different aliases that they go by, and so it's just really hard in know like. You don't even know that that's what you're putting on your skin and in your makeup. Anything that's going on. Your face is going in your mouth. Let's be honest. Is GonNa? Try there, so you are gonNA. Adjust it things that go on your hands. You touch your food. You touch your face so. We. Really don't realize the depth of how much these chemicals are actually impacting our body will, that is very helpful, I think. Like, you said those labels can be very confusing, but those are really helpful things specifically to watch out for when you're picking out those products for your home. Yet and especially for yourself your family. Your pets were all impacted by those things. Absolutely, so my next question for you is I think you touched on this a little bit in your last answer? Why is it that products are able to affect my toxic load? Yeah. That's that is a great question because. Like I said it's going to impact your liver. So things that are going into your body you're liver is part of your filtration systems of we think about the Seltzer on your furnace filter or your car filter or your water filter? They need to be cleaned out after a while because they can only bear so much load before they really functioning well, and so that's the thing that are liver in kidneys in our lungs are doing for our body. Body is they're trying to filter some of that out? But at some point it gets to be too much, and that's when we really start to see the our. Our lifestyle doesn't feel as good as it used to. Like we don't feel like our old selves, and that's really that toxic load is just building up so much on our body that we need a way to get get that out, but we also need to stop bringing so much in. Taxes. Absolutely and you mentioned before that there is just this huge list of. Ingredients that could contribute to our toxic load. which kind of makes some people start to feel overwhelmed about what might be in their house? What do you recommend if I start feeling overwhelmed by trying to clean out my personal care products? Okay that's yeah that that is an overwhelming feeling. Because the average person takes in about five hundred fifteen different chemicals just through their personal care products Lale I know I was thinking about this like. If. You think of every ingredient every chemical being like a sheet of paper you might not feel it in your hand and so light, but if you look at one personal care product that might have twenty six different chemicals in it. You'RE GONNA start to feel that, but think about just kind of think about your day. You Start Your Day off in your bed. You've slept in your bed for about maybe eight or nine hours in whatever laundry detergent maybe fabric softener that you used not only is your skin touching your face. You're smelling it long, so your receptors are taking it in. Then you get up and you take a shower and you think about what? What soap you're using the and conditioner the face wash the base scrub the tone. Are there so many steps to our routine that we just take for granted that we don't even realize how many things were introducing to our bodies? Then go brush Rt.. And then and then and that's. I mean it just as so many that each one of those is carrying a load of you know. Let's say that sheet of paper again. In each one of those has a load of maybe ten twenty six different sheets of paper, and you just loaded all those on now. You're really gonNA feel like a few rings of paper. Feeling in then you're going into the foods that you eat in the air that you breathe at when you really start like it all that it can start to feel like the world is against. Live, it's it's a remarkable thing that are the human body can even endure that much.
Florida Governor Deploys National Guard To Force Residents Back Into Malls, Movie Theaters
"Lord is taking new measures to protect the state from the threat of Corona virus here, how Governor Ron Santa's plans to deploy national. Guard troops to force residents back into the states, malls, movie theater, and later amid growing budget cuts the United States Postal Service is looking to save some money by dumping all the mail in one big pile for everyone to go. We've got the latest on where that big pile of mail is. So you can start rummaging for your envelopes from the onion and onion public radio I'm leslie price and this is the topical. My bosses I'm not allowed to drink anymore seltzer while I'm recording because it makes too much, but I think he's full of Shit. Stay with us. Excuse me. As Corona virus cases continue to grow throughout the US. One state has decided to take drastic measures to overcome the pandemic earlier this week. Florida Governor Rhonda Santa's used his executive power to deploy the State's National Guard to force residents back into malls, movie theaters, and other businesses joining us now with more details as OPR's burke. Clint Remmy, what led to this decision by the Governor Well Leslie Florida officials say they're taking these measures. After millions of residents continued to avoid open restaurants and bars, and blatantly ignored government guidelines to get back out there and save the economy. I spoke to Jeff Pemberton A. A representative from Governor to Santa's his office. Who had this to say? No one wanted it to come to this, but the state's residents left us. No choice so the governor has signed an emergency measure that sense troops to our hardest hit areas to make sure people. There are getting out of their house and staying in stores until they buy something. HM, rummy! Aren't these actions a little extreme? They are in Pemberton acknowledged that this will unfortunately caused a huge blow to the state's population, but he insists that practicing social consumerism is the state's only option to stop this plague of economic downturn. Here's. Here's Jeff Pemberton again simply put irresponsible people are not taking the government advisory seriously by refusing to take the family to the cheesecake factory for dinner and pick up a few things at and barrel on the way home. We're putting all kinds of corporations endanger. We are at a breaking point where these rules must be enforced. The new measure also makes it illegal for the state's twenty one million residents to congregate in restaurants and food courts with fewer than ten people in the National Guard is authorized to question any individual who doesn't look like they've had a haircut in a while or whose roots? Roots are showing to make sure they've made an appointment at a local salon or barbershop. If they haven't those who are looking shaggy, are subject to a two hundred dollar fine, and will be taken to the nearest super cats well, even if they're trying to grow it out, that's right sounds so draconian. However Floridians responding to these new regulations for some residents, the governor's executive order is already taking a toll. Look. I realized that keeping the economy going is more important than everyone's health, but there has to be a balance I don't need any more scented body lotion from bath and body works. Eight games in a row. I don't know how much more my arm can take. They told me they shoot me with beanbag guns if I didn't pay to reserve the lane for the whole. Mural customized. You can't go to the hair to see honored. As the kind of Art God, I would that would make you laugh and cry, and his perfect for the whole family. Now if you do not buy your ticket to the four forty five screen, and then slowly make way. What are the confessions Dan to a large popcorn, drinks and candy of choice, we'll use force while some people could be incredibly selfish. Yes, and unfortunately there are some large groups of protesters trying to defy the orders. We have some audio of the National Guard, moving in and a crowd of people who were trying to leave a mall in Orlando without the required number of full shopping bags. So me. Shop Man. We could do this the easy way or the hard way, but you're going to go into that nail salon and you're going to Pat Yourself. The National Guard were finally able to control the crowd by using tear-gas to corner them a Sunglass Hut until they all bought ray bans. It's sad that this is what it takes to get some people to do. What's right for? For the economy, but remmy are officials worried that this could lead to an increase in corona virus cases. They're taking that into account, but Pemberton noted that those who will suffer the most will be the poor and people in nursing homes, and they don't have that much money to spend anyway well, that's not so bad. Then thank you ramming. That's OPR's Remmy Berkeley back in a
A Ward of the Probate Court
"Welcome back my friends to the big book podcast. My name is Howard and I'm an alcoholic sober since nineteen eighty eight one day at a time in this episode the Thirteenth Story from the personal stories section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in nineteen thirty nine. It's entitled Award of the Probate Court and was printed only in the first edition of the big book. This relatively short story provides a glimpse of the formative years obey when old timers were those with two or three years sober but whose perseverance and dedication made possible a solid foundation for the entire a movement and now the original story award of the probate court at about the time. My graduation from high school a State University was established in our city on the call for an office assistant. I was recommended by my superintendent and got the position. I was rather his choice in pride but a few years later I met him in a nearby city and panhandle him for two bucks for drinks. I grew with the institution and advanced in position. I took a year off for ten minutes at an Engineering College at College. I refrain from any hilarious celebrating. Drinking War was declared. I was away from home on business at the state capital where my mother couldn't raise objections and I enlisted overseas. I was on five fronts from Alsace. Up to the North Sea upon relief from the lines back in the rest area being rouge and Cognac helped in the letdown from trying circumstances. I was introduced to the exhilaration of intoxication. The old spirit. What the Hell Heine may have you tagged. Didn't help towards any moderation in drinking then. We had many casualties but one of the real catastrophes was the lost of a POW. A lieutenant who died from the. Dt's over there after it was all over. This didn't slow me up and back in the states I had a big fling before returning home. My plans were to cover up with my mother and the girl I was to marry that I had become addicted to alcohol but exposed the fact on the day. Our engagement was announced on the way I met a training camp. Buddy got drunk and miss the party booze had got over. Its first real blow on me. I saw her briefly that night but didn't have the guts to face. Her people the Romance was over to forget I engaged in super active life and social fraternal and civic promotion of my community. This all outside my position. In the president's Office of the State University I became a leader. The big flash in the PAN are organized and was first commander of the American Legion Post. Raised funds and built a fine memorial. Clubhouse was secretary a belks. Eagles Chamber of Commerce City Club and active as an operator officer in political circles. I was always a good fellow and control my drinking indulging only in sprees and private clubs or away from home I was deposed from the executive position at the college by political change in the governorship of the state I knew the sales manager of Securities Division of a large utility corporation in Wall Street and started to sell securities the issues and the market were good and I had a fine opportunity. I was away from home and I began to drink heavily to get away from my drinking associates. I managed to be transferred to another city. But this didn't help booze had me. My sales and commissions diminished. I remained almost in a continuous stupor on my drawing account until I was released. I braced up got sober and made a good connection with the steamship agency. A concern promoting European travel and study at most all important universities in Europe. Those were the bathtub gin days and for drinking in about my office. I held out in this position for only a year. I was now engaged to be married. And fortunately I got another position as a salesman for a large corporation I worked hard was successful and my drinking became. I was married and my wife soon learned that I was no social drinker. I tried hard to control it but could not. There were many separations and she would return home. I would make pledges in a sincere effort and then my top would blow off again. I began here to take sanitarium treatments to satisfy my wife and my folks I had a great capacity for drink and work with the help of Turkish baths BROMO SELTZER ASPIRIN. I to the job. I became top notch or in the entire salesforce of the country. I was assigned to more special territory and finally into the market of keenest competition. I was top rate and salary one bonus awards and was bringing in the volume but there was always the drawback. My excessive drinking made at times I was called in once twice and warned. Finally I wasn't to be tolerated any longer. Although I was doing a good job I had lasted five and a half years. I lost my wife along with my job and find income. This was a terrible jolt I tried for a hookup but I had a black eye marring a good record. I became discouraged and depressed. I saw relief with booze. There began the four black years of my life. I had returned home to the community where I had been so prominent these were dry days still and I hung out at the clubs with bars. I got so I would last on a job but a few days just until I could get an advance for drinks. I began to get entangled with the law arrested for driving while intoxicated and drunk and disorderly conduct my folks heard of the cure at the state hospital. I was picked up drunk and sent there by the probate court. I was administered. Parral to hide and came to in receiving ward among lunatics. I was transferred to another word of less violent cases and I found a little group of alcoholics and junkers dope addicts. I learned from them the seriousness of being award of the probate court. I felt then if I ever got released. The old devil alcohol would never get me in a jam like this again in times of great distress. Such as this I would pray to God for help. I was fortunate and was released after eleven days and nights brought up in the laughing academy bughouse. That was enough. I wanted no more of it. I took a job as a manager of a club and put myself to the old acid test. I was going to really assert my willpower. I even tended bar part of the time. But never imbibed a bit. This lasted about three months. I went to an annual convention of my overseas division and came to locked up in a cheap hotel room. New shoes suit coat hat and purse missing. I must have slipped badly then followed much drinking in trouble. After a few arrests for intoxication the law decided another sojourn to the State Hospital would tame me. They jumped the stay this time from eleven days to eleven weeks. It was getting tough for me. I came out in good physical condition and held the fear of getting probate again thinking the siege might be eleven months. I got another job. Stay Dry for about two months and off to the races again. I became terribly weak. Couldn't eat and try to get nourishment from booze and mostly only bootleg that one time. I just made it to a hospital and another time. A police patrol took me to the hospital. Instead of jail. I suffered badly from insomnia as many as three shots in the arm had no effect I would get in shape and back at it again. I was going to battle to finish. The time came when I was to be paid. My soldiers bonus I had the limit or maximum coming friends. Advise my folks to send me to a veteran's hospital before I got this money in my hands. I was pro baited again. Held in a county jail for two weeks and sent again to the asylum. This was my summer resort for three months. I was on the waiting list for the Veterans Hospital but I got into such wonderful physical condition from eating and working out of doors that I was released. I reached home full of resentment against my folks for their having my money tied up in a guardianship I went out and got saturated and landed in jail. I had been free from the asylum for about eight hours behind the bars again. So soon this was bad however I was freed again the next day and this was my last confinement with the
Where is AI Heading? Interview with Nick Thompson, Editor-in-Chief, Wired
"Hello and welcome to the AI today. Podcast I'm your host Kathleen Walsh and I'm your host Ronald Schmeltzer. Our guest today is Nick Thompson. Who is the editor in chief at? I nick thanks so much for joining us on AI. Today Oh thank you so much delighted to be here. Yeah welcome neck and thank you so much for joining us today. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners and tell them a little bit about your background and your current role at wired I Journalists and journalists since I stopped street musician. I'm in my early twenties and prior to wired I worked at the New Yorker around the digital side and then I came over and became the editor in chief of wired. I started the same week. Is DONALD TRUMP? So it's relatively easy to track them. How Long. I've had this job in about three years now. Two years in a month and my role is to assign stories at stories figure out the direction of wired on the HR office figure out our business model view with ethical questions involving sponsored content. And every now and then go on. Cool podcast talk about things. We care a lot about like artificial intelligence. Well great well thanks. We drill to heavier. Because I think you know part of the reason why we have you on our podcast. Is You have an interesting perspective. You obviously hearing from the industry and hearing from pundits and you're hearing of course from what end users are talking about but also a governments are doing have interesting perspective. That may be many others. Don't have on what's happening for artificial intelligence and so as you may see is impacting every industry. It's impacting all sorts of corners of our ecosystem. So how have you seen a evolving over the past few years and for your audience? How have you seen your audience of all in its understanding and interaction with artificial intelligence? It's interesting you know. The debate over a I has conversation. Area has changed and all kinds of wonderful ways since I started this job and started really digging into it. You know three years ago. Four years ago the public conversation over a I was much more about super intelligence and much. More bowed concerns about runaway TAC. Much more caught up in the hype over the last couple of years. We've narrowed and deepened understanding back to now. It's much more about okay. What former they I is going to be. The MOST IS GONNA BE MACHINE. Learning as far as we can see are going to go beyond machine. Learning let's talk about the ethical debates but let's not talk about them in the superficial ways. We really talked about them a year or two ago. Just talk about him and more complex nuanced ways much talk about where is actually being used successfully where it's not. I've talked about it's real limitations. Too I feel like part of my own. Understanding of the issue has deepened in profound ways. Over the last three years editing stories about hey right but I also think that the reader wired have become much more educated on the topic much more interested in it and much more involved than ever increasingly interesting debates about all things related to I. It's interesting that you say that because we've seen a lot of the use cases that we talk about and with our clients as well. We say you know this would be a great application. They're very mundane back office processes things like that and people are like. Oh yeah well. That's kind of a boring use case and we're like yes but it's an incredibly useful one and you should probably start with it and it's going to save a lot of money and time so it's interesting you know you've been seeing that as well where we've gone from this talk about artificial general intelligence is very you know super ristic science fiction view in some sense of Ai. To how can we use it now in every day? So we've talked about how. Ai Is impacting just about every industry including journalism as well. So how do you see? Changing journalism in the coming years and what ethical considerations should be discussed and put in place around this? Yeah I mean I I just want to completely agree with your statement or one of the companies. I read about a lot of facebook. And you know when I started people like Oh my God. Facebook IS USING AI. To create language that will displace humanity. And now hey is basically like a really useful tool for getting porn off facebook right. It's much simpler row tasks that are much better accomplished with assistance. Humans journalism question every profession is going to be changed in interesting ways. Biracial right because professional events systems using. I will be able to do things that we used to have. Humans do so when I think about journalism. What are the things that we do now? That machines can do better from a reporting process. I think that machines and it'll be very help and identifying patterns potentially defined stories so there will be a group of reporters class reporters a type of reporter in the future who will harness AI to analyze databases identify patterns find investigative stories. There will also be kinds of stories that we no longer need to write to the Washington. Post is already experimenting with having a systems writing basic pieces so Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore. Orioles for to to happen. Because someone's home run and Joe got so they're kind of wrote stories that people like to read that you don't really need a human writing you can probably right about stock market and as time passes and as machines get better like those stories will increasing complexity. You won't be able to write three thousand word narratives profiles using an AI system. But you'll be able to write a certain kind class of story within the tasks that we have you right. It'll be changed a little bit. Copy editing an interesting profession. Where High End. Copy editing like trying to identify voice style that will stay with humans right to kind of copy. Editing Donna wired but there's a different level of copy editing that I think probably will be automated replaced by. There's fact checking that you smart a system could do so. There's certain tasks within the stack of tasks that make up the creation of an article. That will be done with I in a certain set of them. That won't be a lot of journalism in ball. Human to human contact human human reporting becoming friends with somebody eventually developing a relationship where they trust you to give you the information that makes an important story like a machine is not gonna be able to develop a trusted relationship with the source story but a machine will be able to do copy editing. The fact check legal review parts of that more efficiently than a human can so few ways. It's GonNa Change. They're probably about twenty five thousand others but that start that's interesting. You know one of the things we've noticed it. I don't think related specifically artificial intelligence but the whole idea of the long form article has really sort of. It's become a lot I mean. Maybe I'm just noticing it more become a lot. More prevalent icon. There's like bringing you into the emotion of the story and sort of like you know carrying rather than just talking about the facts of some story just today. I was reading this book about somebody who was lost in the Costa Rican rainforest and somebody wrote a book about it and and instead of just talking about that sort of brings you into the story and I found that to be really engaged. Something of course that you can't really do what they item wondering if one is sort of like a reaction to the other which is that. These sort of automated pieces are taking the place of sort of this more sorta wrote journalism and in the place now. Journalists are more storyteller switch bringing people into the narrative. I mean does something. I don't know if that's something that's intentional or I'm just noticing it more. I think that I think it is true that there are more of those stories and it probably you are seen more of them in your newsletters in the publications you read. I don't think it's a reaction to a I yet or it. Is You know. Five percent due to ask generated through. I think that is much more. A reaction to the decline of advertising supported journalism so one of the big wrecks or phenomenon dinner industries that the price of ads on websites and permissions like both prices. Going down in the Seltzer rate is going down. So it's much harder to generate revenue off of content. Right if you get if you publish a ton of stories and get a ton of readers. It's hard to
No, the Corona Virus Did Not Sink Sales of Corona Beer
"From wondering I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Tuesday march tenth. Wow It's been a long few weeks as anxiety's been mounting over this corona virus no surprise that the viruses hit many businesses especially those with global supply chains in companies that sell rely on travel. But there's one company hit hard because of branding. Yes you guessed it that would be corona the maker of beer and hard seltzer. It's sales slowed tremendously because many Americans. It seems are confused about the association between the beer and the virus. Oh Com on. They are not the last couple of weeks. Misleading story went viral. It implied that Americans are so dumb. That many of us believe the beer can cause the virus that message spread by a certain less than honest public relations firm seemed to indicate that sixteen percent of us are confused about the relationship between corona the beer and corona the disease. That's killing people. It also implied that Krona's beer sales had fallen because of the virus. The story was so convincing that many major news outlets picked it up including CNN. The New York Post and vice among others not surprisingly twitter went Gaga over this story. None of it's true. Let's talk for a minute about the difference between correlation and causation. Shall we correlation means? Two things are happening Ed once but may have little to do with each other causation. Means well okay you get it. This is key to what happened. So a firm called Five W. P. R. published a poll of more than seven hundred Americans. That poll asked questions about the corona virus and about corona the brand one of the findings. According to this firm. Thirty eight percent of those polled said they would not by corona beer under any circumstances now as a writer for the Atlantic noted the PR firm then went on to state without proof. The reason these respondents won't buy corona is because of the virus not so in fact many or even all of those thirty eight percent may not have been corona drinkers to begin with as was reported in the Atlantic. They might not by corona regardless. But that's not how the PR firm chose to sell it in fact that firm trumpeted the so-called finding saying who would want to go into a bar right now in order corona well in in fact corona sales have fallen. That's in part because sales of many beer brands are down in China at a time. When beer sales usually climb we're talking about the lunar brew year a New Year Abn Bev which distributes corona outside of the US forecast day ten percent decline in sales in China because people are staying home. That's according to the fact. Checking website slopes so that particular sales declined does appear to be a corona virus effect. Just not related to the name of corona beer. What got much less play as a statement from Constellation brands which distributes corona inside the US in America Constellation said. Sales grew five percent in the four weeks that ended February sixteenth. That's double the sales trend for the last year. Snoops reported constellation clearly felt it was necessary to correct the wild misconceptions in a press. Release the firm stated that its customers quoting here understand. There's no link between the virus in our business. Exactly giving constellation brands even more headaches. However was the unfortunate coincidence between its long planned on brand marketing campaign for hard seltzer and the growth of corona virus. Constellation is spending forty million dollars on a marketing campaign to launch. Its New Corona Hard Seltzer in North America according to industry publication food
Has Canada reached Peak Craft Beer?
"Do you know how far away from you your nearest brewery is. I have no idea where you live of course but I'm willing to bet. The answer is a lot closer than it used to be. No matter where you live in Canada and this goes I. Small towns of like three hundred people in cities of more than three million there is a craft brewery around the corner over the past decade. The rise of craft beer has actually been one of Canada's biggest entrepreneurial success stories but how long can that really last as an example? There are four cool little India Breweries within walking distance from my house. And I love it but I would have to be stupid to expect them all still be thriving and five here. Wouldn't I I mean there has to be a limit to how much Canadians love their beer. Right Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the Big Story Stephanie. Marotta rights for Global Males Report on business. Hey Stephanie thanks for having me no problem. We're talking about one of my favorite topics. We had to do something. That's when I picked up the phone and said I'm calling you to talk about beer. Nolan's hung up on me amazing So start by putting into perspective. I guess because we're GonNa talk about this whole industry just how fast and big the rise of craft beer in Canada has been. It's been incredible. I think one of the reasons the story is resonating. So much with people is because no matter where you are in the country. It seems like there's a new craft brewery opening every month. Almost it's just skyrocketed so the number of breweries over the last five years has more than doubled so in two thousand fifteen. We had three hundred and eighty breweries across the country. That is now almost a thousand. It's crazy it's been astronomical and really that growth looks very different depending on where you are in the country so in Ontario British Columbia and Quebec. Those have the most mature. Craft Brew Industries at the moment and the between those three provinces they make up more than seventy five percent of all the craft breweries in the country but that growth has really caught up in other regions as well so last year. New Brunswick and Nova Scotia saw some of the fastest rates of newbury openings in the country but really Alberta led the charge on they saw sixty percent increase from seventy breweries. Two hundred and twelve breweries. Year-over-year year over here. So it's been an incredible amount of growth and when you have so many players coming into the market over just half a decade. The growth is just astounding. So how does that happen? A part of that a small part of it may be is the cool factor. No no that episode of high met your mother when Ted and Barney say that they want to open up a bar. It seems like a really fun place to be. But what's really interesting? Is that when you actually get to speak with these brewers? They have the most incredible stories. These are lawyers and engineers nurses and former Labor workers who are leaving their careers to come into this burgeoning industry and they're starting off by brewing in their garages before they scale to larger brick and mortar institutions. And they're starting off in these communities. That are really hungry for some economic development. So they're creating jobs and they're bringing money into the area. That's an attracted a ton of investment so from government investment arms like the BBC to private equity investors. A ton of money has been flowing into this because everyone wants a piece of this pie of on one end the success story of of creating jobs in an economy. That looks like what we're in right now and then on the other side have being able to say that Own a piece of a brewery. That's something really fun to say right. Answer the government gets into it then because these are popping up in neighborhoods that could use sources of jobs and economic development and so they will give them start up money essentially. Yeah through a couple of different methods. So we've seen a lot of investment from from governments into the sector so last year we saw the federal government and the government of Ontario Invest One Million Dollars Into Twenty craft breweries in Ontario. And that's in addition to a one point six million dollar investment from two thousand sixteen now while that sounds like small amounts in isolation. We're seeing a number of provincial governments across the country. Do exactly the same thing and further that we're seeing economic development arms like the BBC and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency investing in in Craft Breweries and providing them with start up loans. When you put all of that together with a national scope that's a ton of money going into opening new breweries and then on the flip side. We've seen a lot of private equity go into this as well so often times when breweries can no longer access government funding for whatever reason it seems like a pretty easy thing to go out and find an angel investor venture capitalist. Who who wants to throw a million dollars into into a berry so this growth is still happening this year as we're talking. Yeah so the growth is expected to continue to climb. I was chatting with the Canadian. Craft brewers association and they expect another two hundred craft breweries to open up this year alone. That's a twenty percent increase year over year compared to the thousand that we currently have so. It's it's just going to continue to rise but there's gotta be a tipping point right like how much beer can Canadians reasonably consume. And I mean that seems like a funny question but it's not like at some point we're going to saturate the market right. I don't doubt the Canadians can drink their fair share of beer. Sure at all But I've seen a number of industry watchers trying predict this tipping point. And this moment where we're going to hit peak craft beer and I've had a lot of conversations with Roy Moore is the people who fund And Brewery Associations and from what? I'm hearing across. The board is that we are at this tipping point so we're seeing a number of craft breweries closed. Get put up for sale or diversify away from craft beer altogether and a large part of that is because Canadians are drinking less beer really. We're seeing it in the numbers so fifteen years ago. Canadians drank so much beer. That beer sales made up for fifty percent of all alcohol sales in the country. Now it's at a point that's only nine percent and that gradual decline is quickening now. It's not all doom and gloom. Canadians are still drinking beer. Just in different ways so one bright spot is that comedians do seem to be drinking more craft beer even though beer sales are declining overall. So if we look at the L. C. B. O. Just to is late that as an example last year craft beer sales increased twenty seven percent year-over-year now that is slower than the forty percent increase in. They saw the year before in twenty teen while. They're still seeing a spike. It's beginning to slow down and despite that big surge in people buying craft beer. It's still only accounts for ten percent of total beer sales at the L. CBO. It certainly accounts for more than ten percent of the shelf space. It does luckily for grab brewers. It does a lot of liquor. Boards have been increasing. Their shelf. Space Craft Breweries little bits every year. Like Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation. They've increase their craft beer shelf space from twenty-seven percent last year to thirty two percent this year so we are seeing marginal increases and even at the L. C. B. O. I think is about eight years ago. They they listed thirty three different craft breweries and now that's increased to one hundred and eighty. The issue is that that falls far short from the three hundred breweries. That are in Ontario alone. There are one hundred twenty breweries that can't get listed and even if you are listed that doesn't mean that you're in every store across Ontario depending on how much beer you produce. You might only be able to get listed in two or three Elsie. B O's within a certain distance from your store so that speaks to something that I wanted to get out because you talk about. How startups for Craft Breweries are exploding? And everybody wants to get into it. And it's not that hard to get funding and get going. How difficult is it to sustain a craft brewery as as a business you know how many of these Newbury's actually break even Make money statistics. Canada says that only fifty percent of the small to medium size breweries in the country are profitable and from speaking. With brewers. It takes about five to seven years to start turning a profit now. We're at an point in candidates beer industry because craft beer really started to grow about five years ago. So we're just now hitting that point where craft brewers are starting to figure out whether they're able to make ends meet and what. I'm seeing a lot of something that I'm hearing. That crafters trying to do is they're trying to get in on different segments. That are growing faster than craft beer so at a point where consumers are moving away from beer and drinking more wine. They're drinking more spirits more ready to drink products. So I'm hearing. The brewers are getting into distilling. They're getting into some of. Those funds Seltzer products. That are more low calorie and speak to a healthier lifestyle. So you're starting to see little tweaks and you're also seeing some brewers start to realize that maybe they can't make this work after all this podcast will be right back after a really quick message. Can you guess the average dollar amount Canadian households have in savings according to the most recent data? It is just eight hundred and fifty two dollars now. The recommended rate of savings in Canada is ten percent and traditionally Canada's historical rate has been around seven point five percent last year though. It was one point seven. That doesn't sound like a lot because it isn't it can be hard to save today for people who are often carrying debt. It can be even harder in fact thirty nine percent of Canadians right now of all ages. Don't think they will ever save enough for retirement. So how do you save when there's not much there to start with? Well you need a plan and we'll be back after this episode to you how. Rbc's my advisor can help you get started even if you only have a little you can visit our BBC Dot Com slash advisor to find out more right now or enjoy the rest of this podcast and we'll be there at the end to tell you more.

"seltzer" Discussed on The Complete Guide to Everything
"That's why that's what causes them to come to life. In my field carbonates lifeforms yeah accents sense so you know in the old days they had to rely on God's to God to make Seltzer and I- sparkling mineral yes but then it sought the first person airy water with Carbon Dioxide was William Brownrigg in seventeen forty although he never published a paper yeah I mixed up all the time published a paper about it well so you got to publish a paper yeah well so he didn't publish a paper and he got screwed because he didn't patent it. The carbonation process carbonate water was this patenting is publishing. It yeah okay carbonated. I needed water was independently accidentally invented by Joseph Priestley not to be confused with Jason Priestley from nine. Oh two one oh in seventeen sixty seven twenty seven years later this guy he accidentally did it. The fuck was he'd never have a drink. This he discovered a method of infusing water with Carbon Dioxide after suspending a bowl of water above a beer VAT at a brewery in Leeds England he wrote note of the particular or no not particular peculiar satisfaction he found when drinking it and in seventeen seventy two so the even along you know five years later he published a paper entitled impregnating water with Fixed Air the publication in which he published publish this that would print an article called impregnated impregnating water with Vicks. I don't know you'll hustler something like that. priestley's apparatus apparatus which featured a bladder between the generator and the absorption tank to regulate the flow of carbon dioxide with soon joined by a wide range of others however. I'm do you you think this is interesting. What you're saying. We're that anybody's wasn't until seventeen eighty one that carbonated water began being produced on a large scale with the establishment of companies specializing using in producing artificial mineral water artificial the bladder was replaced with large bellows like like a day you have enough fireplace and said they were just below the carbon dioxide in their man. If you've ever have been around a fireplace with somebody under the age of eleven they love that bellows Tim. I'm telling you I love that Ballard K. Put that down. Stop Stop playing with that. My niece apparently has been fixated. We're trying to get into the chimney into the fireplace my brother's House that'll be nice and now that winter's coming the fireplace gets into use data venture not be interested anymore. I I mean if it gets hot enough. A baby's going to turn around and be like this is probably yeah probably actually pretty close. It gets pretty high. The opposite of me and J. Crew when I log in Jacor and I'm like it's too cold and I turn around and there's nothing for me. They're they're they're. They're stuff doesn't fit me right peculiar body dementia peculiar. I'm like halfway between a Dan and Blah in medium size and there's the I feel like I need to get all my clothes custom-made. I thought you shopped in the Husky boy section I for I think that's probably my best bet. They got a Husky boy section in J. Crew. Don't they know you should go in there and ask him anything for a Husky boy like me yeah. I am a Husky boy. You're too tall to be a boy and you're not Husky seized as tall what the hell out of it would make sense as I would say another interesting thing I've bad about this team which which will contradict your idea that Soda Water Seltzer Water is any kind of saliva. which is that they were trying to figure out health benefits or attractions about it? The only thing was that it's a little more acidic than regular water your teeth. There were like that could be bad but they said it's the city is so mild that edit is neutralized by saliva of saliva can't be club. Soda Tom. Because he got saliva can be anything everything that God wants to eat immediately neutralized but then that would mean you wouldn't taste anything mean. Sometimes you want some dance a little sick acidic yeah yeah. I know it won't harm him. Well yeah eating acidic thing harm Eunice her yeah we don't know yeah. I know woman. Did I just blow your mind. You did the going anywhere this now no well. You're just reading the WIKIPEDIA for I know I know but but it was you weren't even paying attention to the words. You were reading back in the old days. You know what they called a seltzer water when they would order it at like the Ebbe a soda jerk well. That's not nice. That's what they call them. Soda Jerks Well. That's not nice yeah. I don't know why they were called. Jerks six 'cause they jerked down the hand. LASOTA they would say Gimme two cents plain and two cents plain yeah to bits and that Nan soda water because back then if you wanted a flavoring at it like Cola Hola or charrier whatever that was an additional three cents for the Syrup two cents plain see so trash heap. Oh yeah because now is seltzer costs the same as a can of soda. Yeah you get flavoring for Free Yeah. Wow what a time eight amazes me that a man we're. We're recording this in Brooklyn New York Yeah. Why doesn't Somebody Open Goddamn old-timey Soda Shop. Where it's you know you mix it the way that a soda jerk did in the past I'm sure there are places places like that. I've had things like that. No you have have tim would you had I've had like old timey sodas where where they mix them where they put some two cent plane and then and then add some syrups. I go where the the market's been friendly to me. Put in in some Sierra but in some chocolate syrup chocolate yeah give me a chocolate water. Where have you had this. I don't know but I've had it before. I think you're live hat like a Johnny rockets. I don't think Johnny rockets exists anymore exists. I went to a Johnny rockets once on a cruise ship tip Tom tyree at twice the worst kind of diary so give me two cents playing give me two cents plain diarrhea twice over yeah jeepers creepers up to hang my ass off the side. No they say the wrist strap why we need to have a real real real long rope trailing behind yeah yeah if I I was at a shark could get on the ship could just eat his way up the rope until it suddenly he's on the ship. Did you see this news article this week that I didn't like poor reading comprehension but it was like some underground laboratory and they hadn't heard from it in a while and they went down there and all they found found was like the frayed edge of the like wire and the whole like laboratory. WISCON- oh yeah what kind of underground laboratory underwater laboratory sorry to see a sea monster eight it presumably probably there are legit sea monsters down there now uh monsters of the deep dish s James Cameron about that. What do you think you think there's a lot of weird stuff under the ocean that like we have no idea Yeah Alien Bases Oh alien basis and I think there's creatures that were we'd just be like Whoa never saw that before.

That's the that's the big brand big brand best brand which I feel like the last three or four weeks. Everybody like White Claw turned into a museum yeah. I've been drinking white cloth for up to the twelve weeks. I'd say seen it in refrigerators will so I was doing some research as I normally do and I found an article in July. Were they said White Claw had experienced two hundred two hundred eighty three percent growth in the last S. four weeks yeah and that was before it became kind of like a mean and before has happened recently which is is that they've issued a statement saying that there's a shortage raising prices no. They're not raising prices but I think they're the fools but I think that they're probably warning like look. Look out there for the black market. We can't control the black market. They might start. Raising prices was more dislike. Hey don't get mad. If you buy other brands. I will probably just like hey you know if you don't see us at the supermarket. Don't forget for like a month or two until we can catch up. Don't forget about us and then try a different brand and realize like Oh the other brands Sir justice good yeah. They're all the same and they're the one thing they have in common. Is that they all taste like candy and not at all like an alcoholic golic beverage. Yeah it has no alcoholic taste to it. They had the like the Seltzer. There's the alcoholics shelters the creed started last summer. Yes but we were. We were there me and you we had yeah EXA- summer but they I work in an office and there were some of them in the office share. I work in an office. I know Tim and I work in the mines.

They're like these boys. Don't know anything about what I do this. There's essentially a USO tour yeah. Hey keep it up over over there or down there for our friends in submarines. Oh yeah yeah stop reminding him of how hellish that is. Do you think this show has ever been listened to on a submarine. Probably that's cool I mean I doubt it's ever been like blasted over the seeker so everybody hears it. Yeah you think they still have that like old. Taibbi like Horn speaker there yeah they do. That's the thing that really differentiates me about suffering. Dhs I feel like the interiors haven't been updated since the fifties yeah probably still picture of Eisenhower and each one that would be the president. That'd be cool but like they they surface. You gotta be like I got A. I got some bad news about hike. You've been down there for sixty thing. I'm afraid of that like you get put down there in a submarine and you and they don't let you back up for a while L. Swim out of there. Oh no no they opened up the door scabby trouble forever. If they sail yet to see you could jump overboard for board and swim team. That's not true either. Probably it's not true I ever see the island of Dr Moreau the film I've read it. I lived live did know there's this guy this author that I am a fan of Hugh Howey. NFL on twitter and he and he has a he was more of a photographer then an author. Here's more of a man about town. He has a big boat like he lives on like a boat that he had made any just like sales around the world on this boat but he was writing once about how he's like. Yeah one of the kind of scary things is like I failed you know middle of the ocean all over by myself and the boat has like an auto pilot and the scary thing is like sometimes absorb peeing over the back of the boat and I'll think like boy if I slip. That's it like I'm GonNa fall in the boat's going to keep going and I'm going to die and it's basically basically the equivalent of like falling off a roof but the falls. GonNa take like three days before you hit. What do you mean it's GonNa take three days three days for him to like finally die. Why doesn't he wear a backpack with an inflatable raft and out whenever he wants to go pee off the side 'cause even then he's in the mill nowhere and it's just like yeah no. There's no chance anyone's GonNa come across me. Just I'll just die of exposures known liar but then he's talking about this other guy that he said he knew of a famous guy and this guy to wake up in the morning would dive off the front of his boat while it was on autopilot swim under and grab onto a rope that that the boat was trailing knowing that if he missed that grab that was it the boat would just keep going and he would. I wouldn't just stop the boat. Wait you mean why would he keep the boat going on autopilot if he wanted to go for a swim. It wasn't that he real of lies. You could get the blood flow in and I'm like well damaged. We shouldn't be celebrating mismatch coffee that will get the blood flowing enjoy being around the deck a little bit more stop the boat and Gig gophers swim and then swim back to the boat yeah yeah he can do that. I was thinking to us like they probably make like Ariss Strap or something like Bluetooth where it's like this loses connection yeah. Stop the boat yeah. I'll then when you go to swim back. It's like Oh reconnecting said like the trick. When somebody goes to get in your car well I guess you could take the take it off but then what if a fish gets it and then the fish go fish suddenly the fish onto your boat now right then the sleeping with your wife that would be that would be fun if they put a thing like that on a shark and the shark just had a boat following him wherever he went for the rest of life. Why would that be fun. The Shark read even even noticed this is for the sharks benefit because the shark did notice that the PRI- dislike stress it out until it dies one one less shark shirk our enemy right we would like to when I was a kid. I did not understand like why okay everybody was like well. Finally one day we're going to get rid of all these just wipe out the shard knowing the snakes the snakes sharks. We need but snake. Sweden Sweden needs me need snakes. They like barely even eat. We still don't understand how snakes move. That's one hundred percent true. Not We have a pretty good handle at it but we don't really the pet store and figure it out. Just watch it move around little legs little legs eggs. Scientists don't know withering yeah but you can't sliver like that slither not this liver uh-huh Seltzer Seltzer were talking about before we started talking about the military and and just about all this. Oh Yeah in my in my radio they had the hard seltzer in their readers have a bucket in the mind since full of thirty water sometimes his pissed anyway. There's people would just you know it'd be eleven. AM It'd be like I'll go for a seltzer and you would drink a whole before somebody had to come up to you and be like Oh. That's not lacroix or something. That's got alcohol in and you can't taste it. It is packaged kind of the same in just kind of it's got like a non. It doesn't look like a beer. Can it doesn't have three exits on it. which is all the booze that I drink right right so you know yeah and so there have been a number of mishaps in my office? My company's going out of business because so if you're a small business owner owner do not stock hard seltzer at the office for us after hours. Keep it locked up in the boss office. Yeah the bus is always getting more and make sure the bosses and as I have a drinking problem every facet of drinking problems yeah because they deal with all the knuckleheads xactly yeah you don't you don't become the boss by having one but once you're there. You're like for me a stiff one. I gotTA figure at the budget or pour me a loose one. You know Seltzer Alcohol Seltzer. That's what they call a loose one. Yeah 'cause a stiff. One is going to be like you're going to trigger like oh that Burns but loose one. You're just not even alcohol like that Yeah Yeah So. I was reading an article about the hard seltzer boom. I forget what publications NBA's by that Guy Josh Barrow Okay a New York magazine. I think so yeah rates for all right so we're crediting the yeah. Look don't get US involved evolved all this plagiarism but even talking about the the hard seltzer and he made a really good point which was inlet. We're not just going to talk about Hartselle. Serena talk about the soft shelter to renew hard without the size of the real loose stuff yeah but he said Eve's like everybody thinks is a fad. This is not a fad and I'll tell you why because this is feeling an unserved desire in the market which is to have a vodka soda in a can. Oh yeah that's true in which they do have remember walking around on on the street in the UK Drinking Vodka Soda in a can yeah and just being like why don't they have this in in like. Why can't you just walk around the city drinking this in New York and now I'm actually kind of glad yeah and he was saying Look People Drink Vodka Soda because it doesn't have taste essentially actually it's like the the most neutral thing you can drink and that's what people want and he said the difference is that Yeah Vodka Sodas lack as seed normal like forty percent alcohol saying he put some Soda in there. The drink is price still ten to twenty percent alcohol the entire drink right whereas these are are five percent alcohol and the difference is because these are brewed and not distilled and one I think legally you can't sell distilled single drinks in cans in the US.

I mean the the what they actually think. It's like Oh this things like a either a spy satellite or that it has weapons on it and the ideas like if world war three broke out they'd be like all right rover like go shoot down all the other satellites up there. That's what it's up there doing therefore guess we'll find out soon we definitely currently we'll find out within our very short lifetimes so yeah. The Air Force does do some space stuff's cool woah well. I don't ever want to go on a submarine I will not I'm going to have to beg to get out of this navy well and in the Navy I mean you're saying it should be its own thing but like within the navy. I think it's pretty much. I don't think it's like you. Show up to work on Monday and it's like Oh. I wonder if it would be an ship or submarine this week. Maybe or maybe it's just just like Oh for the rest of my career for a submarine and they just tell you stuff from what I understand. What about the armed forces. They tell you stuff you that very little recourse rather nine. The war doesn't seem to me yeah yeah yeah. I mean and there are people you know. There's like a you know people on the subs that they're the cooks or whatever so it's like. I'm just going to be I'd like to be a cook on a ship cruise ship. Maybe I shouldn't even join the military Tom Join Royal Caribbean yeah instead. That's like all like diarrhea food right Tim. What does that mean. That's all everybody comes off a cruise ship with diarrhea no not everybody's just that that win the most people in there are outbreaks or whatever their of illnesses stomach-borne illnesses year in a confined space space. It's going to spread pretty rapid yeah but I'll tell you this. I haven't been on a cruise ship in a long time but any time I've been on a cruise ship and this is part again. What I told the recruitment a crewman officers like a markdown like been on cruise ships. which is a very big plus is like actually I'm GonNa put that above the karate. Oh Wow yeah I insisted no you keep the karate a number one unless you wanNA karate chop to the neck awhile and that intimidated dated him yeah and he is like your your naval officer material so part of the army or the armed forces is you. There's some of them are shipped overseas. Some of them are in space apparently or not in space wink wink and then some of them are just just like you've been. We're putting you in a strip mall in the suburbs to recruit people yeah yeah. That'd be that's that's. That's the job that I'd be most suited for. 'cause I spend most of my diamond strip malls and very not not much of my time on the battlefield to well. I don't think they want people who have spent a lot of time on the battlefield before they joined the military lie 'cause saying it's like they don't WanNa. I'll the guys that I saw at a paintball place one time yeah 'cause they're. They're on the battlefields of Long Island and the Navy think they're they're a shoo in for corporal or whatever their kids well. That's what they're training for on on the battlefields of the I was re reminiscing about a my time playing paintball earlier this week Tim. Wow town yeah. I I do not like paintball. Everybody is so serious about payback when you paintball except for me yeah. I'm pretty young. I'm not like serious in the unserious during the match yeah but like in the beforehand it's not like Oh yeah. We need to put game phase on. Just put the paint balls. I don't like being being involved in combat of any of any sort or shooting any kind of weapon even if they're just fun paintball weapons. I'll tell you this much playing paintball everytime time I've played it which is on the only been like a handful of times. I've always thought while I'm doing it boy imagine if this is real holy moly Moley. Would this be stressful like imagine. If the fear you have right now like poke in your head out you might get a paintball splat on your head that it might just blow your head clean off yeah that stay. I don't even like in the paint bull's thinking. Oh my God you know what I would probably just find find a like a really good place to hide. If this year all I would definitely no. I do my hardest not to be there in the first place right and I would definitely not like run from from this thing that I'm behind to that thing over there no one time we were at a Bachelor party for a friend Tom and we got mixed in with this whole a group of guys playing paintball and I just wanted to shoot my friends with the paintball later like closer range than they they tell you is allowed a bit because it doesn't hurt that bad won't kill them unless you hit them in the wrong place and then so there's other guys who have never seen any he was in fatigues that he brought from home and he brought his stuff and they blew the whistle or whatever and the thing started and we were on the same team and he sprinted by Armie sprinting by me. He slapped me on the back real hard cover me and I didn't even I don't know what that means. I know suit theoretically what practice never someone like immediately. He just got shot by like fifteen in guys and he wanted to beat the Shit Outta me he was coming over screaming airs like even if I had ever shot any kind of anything before I don't I think even an experienced person could have stopped all fifteen people for shooting you like that yeah but he was angry and I I'm gonNA. Go wait in the car. While you guys should yeah. That's like in real war. I don't think that that's really that's how it works in movies but I think it real a war like that. Guy would say to you like hey. I'm thinking about going over there. If you covered me think I'd make it or you think they'd kill works the conversation. I don't think you and I are qualified to talk about now. I think it would go more that way or I think you know. Eh pukes you get over there right now. I think if a guy was like cover me you would then grabbed him by the before he ran away. NBA I can't cover hover. You Man Look I. It's a death trap. You're walking into way. I'm I'm not going home. Dear wife telling her that I lost you and and then I have to marry her because she you know we. We have that in common. We're both said that you're gone and we and we can only find love within each each other's hearts and each other's eyes but then but then I feel overwhelming guilt all the time about what I've done. Who's going to raise his son Tom. I'll raise your son yes but I'll resent them. Why because when I look at them I just feel the guilt I feel the guilt of having married your wife. If so your son he'll resent me and I'll resent him and then hill hill to go into the war business as well the war business yeah. It's rough tim this week..
"seltzer" Discussed on Eater's Digest
"There's no turned but but also to monitor their intake interesting yeah so i feel like to meet these drinks are vodka. Soda is the godfather but the drinks are not straying. I think they're just accessible in a new way. <hes> yeah sure great yeah. It's like a it's a canvas but also a flavor because my problem with on premise traumas vodka soda as it tastes like shit so if you put a little low flavor in there may be a little more palatable. I'm on board also in the health category. We should mention that. Most of these are gluten free sharar so people care about that beer drinkers who can't handle gluten or just don't want it might gravitate towards words spike seltzer. I think yeah and i think another major point here is that <hes> people like activities. Activities are big and you can't really slam a beer and then play spike ball in the same way he now. They are point yeah minna. I don't know if you know this about me but i am constantly fighting the hangover's ooh yeah i'm battling them a lot but one of the ways. I soften them up. A little bit is by not drinking any sugar category to the seltzer bubble when four loko dropped their new spiked seltzer product. They captioned it. Hard seltzer ran so we could fly but really. I think that the seltzer movement or lacroix roy ran so hard seltzer could fly yes. I can't separate this movement. I don't think this drink would be having. It's boom without the boom of seltzer. Seltzer has been big for the last two years as people try to get off of soda and they realize like oh coke is not good for me. I need to drink something that has zero calories as yen's oh they've been getting into roy and all of the lacroix competitors and now oh here's an alcoholic version i can just continue mccray habit. It's just water with a little bit of fun next category sobriety. Did you know sobriety is in its n daniel. Is it yeah it's they're sober influencers. I think there are people are also sober curious. People are just trying to get into yeah big time so low a._b. Drinks in general aw are kind of on the rise and well. This is not that much different than a beer in terms of how alcoholic it is. I think it just plays into this idea of people trying to get into session drinks or trying to have a drink that is just not going to completely kill them next up. It is trendy okay. Yeah waclaw is inexpensive. The seltzer drinks are inexpensive and also cool in a way that is both ironic and ironic. Yes well also the cans are very cute and pretty an aspirational fancy looking so they're good for the instagram but they're cheap. It's accessible instagram thing. I actually think that this this movement parallels the obsession with jewel a little bit because it is better for you than the thing that everyone was used to. It is like fun fun. People make jokes about it. People love making jewish jokes. People love making jokes about hard seltzer. I bet the teams love it too. I'm not gonna make any. I don't know i don't go to parties anymore. We mean either but i'm just assuming yeah. I think you're right. I mean that's the point you were making but i think you're right that it is like the jewel uh-huh fun flavors are a little bit healthier yeah easy to sneak into places which leads us to portability and the low key aspect of of these cans. You could carry them around in your purse on the subway into your high school who knows kids these days kids these days and no one's really gonna know have you you ever drank waclaw on the subway. I have not <hes> have you. Oh yeah oh yeah yeah yeah and you don't feel bad. What about it. I i did it and didn't worry. I didn't fear the law. You know where you could bring him. The movies yeah at depends on the security at the theater 'cause true true sure they might check your purse or your tote bag or your toes. I think that a lot of people would want to drink vodka soda or tequila soda on the beach each <hes> but no one wants to bring the mixers yeah bringing home bottles inconvenient and expensive all right last category bro culture. Don't know anything about it. Oh you know nothing about pro culture. Let me tell you okay the bros. Have embraced white claw. Even though these kinds of drinks have in the past i e zima what's the story. There was a spiked seltzer. Ish drink called zima in the nineties. They tried to market it to men. It was completely not embraced people on late night. Show isn't used to make fun of zima and guys who drank zima as girly or kind of silly and now it's completely accepted. I think if they they're bringing back zima right they tried to bring it back and it filled well over to smooth. Didn't they have that mo- that commercial that does something something something different was their marketing slogan aw yeah i mean i think they were stumbling out of the gate. There are a lot of things wrong with fema but in this iteration of spike spike seltzer guys are all in at first. I think it was kind of ironic but now people seem to be embracing it with earnestness because now evolved bros. Can can accept their love of health. Yeah i think when something is better it's going to eventually catch on these are going to make people feel better in the morning. They're making them feel more. We're active but what about zima. I think that was before the health movement launched primarily out of the jersey shore television show is is that where evolved healthy bros. Came to be no guys who could care about their body very publicly. I don't think so but i can't think of an earlier representation of like like an egg white bro on on mainstream television so for me. That was a really important a pivotal moment in my life. <hes> i started doing my laundry laundry. So part of waclaw getting adopted by bro culture ironically or not is video from trevor wallis are are you familiar. Oh yeah so he is a comedian yeah like a viney youtube comedian and he did kinda tongue-in-cheek satire your video where he's bro who just loves waclaw yeah white cloth summer twenty nineteen baby cleaned a phrase. I know laws when you're drinking clause ause baby basically just a rich person's. Lima rita alan shirts that say that t shirt but white claw waco put a stop to it and i actually are laws which is funny money. They get shows you that white claw gets it well of course what do you think about about this. Expression ain't no laws when you're drinking laws hate it well. It's awful. I think he said it in a way where he was he was acting as a gross bro yeah satire tire but then it becomes accepted and then people say it ironically and then on ironically and then it's just like snake eating its tail. It legitimises a lot of very wrong very terrible. Is there are lots of laws. Please follow all right so to really understand spike seltzer and which is the best spike seltzer which when we should be buying we brought to the studio john carey noted bartender seltzer expert i think and all around ridge great human welcome to the studio. Thanks for having me. Could you talk a little bit about the alcohol. That's in these. It's a just sugar alcoholic. Fermented sugar basically basically yeah so i'm not like an expert on what a malt beverages <hes> but because of are like super cockamamie liquor laws we can't just put like vodka and soda into i can and i desperately wish that we could like in japan. You can get like japanese whiskey high balls at seven eleven and it's like heaven basically a malt beverages just a very high alcohol beer. It's made with with like grain and usually sugar to ferment into something. That's higher like mark twelve twenty percent alcohol so it's not a spirit indirect census basically just like a flavourless beer flavored john you have never had a spiked seltzer before and we're going to as quick as we can run through all these flavors and get get your take on them yeah but as someone who is a culinary expert in the field of mythology you you have a good sense of what these are gonna taste like you know there's so but also i know that from experience i've been developing something <hes> like a drink and are you getting into this game. Not this no but next podcast. We'll talk about it but it's really really really really hard to do this and make it taste. Good and berry flavors are kind of gross like briefer. It's really easy to do. I this is also very easy. Cranberries easy so it's like and they pick the right ones whereas like people trying to do like blue raspberry and it's like people are like watermelon like a taste like great bubbalicious. We're going to start with grapefruit bond invasive. Give oh great found my initial reaction. It's surprisingly flavourless. It is oh how how's the aftertaste. It's a little tinny gle almost metallic <hes> we could be okay if someone gave to me i with drink it again. Yeah yeah okay next clementine high viscous. You don't get a lot of hibiscus in this one. If you ate a clementine peel in grade right cranberry time i hate the smell of this one that also be also so bb plus pair elder flower. Ooh yuck yuck by far the best one really we yeah. It's really good jolly rancher but i think that's why it's good. It doesn't try to be something it's not. It's just like candied water next up. We have truly i mean huge costco fan and i don't mean this as a slight to costco but truly looks like the costco shelter. Yes kirkland yeah yeah exactly all right here. We go truly roma yet. That's the worst one i've had so far. Yeah mixed pack is like a huge red flag for me because it's all berry uh-huh various kind of yeah. It doesn't always crush it on the artificial flavor. We should try black cherry claw now to compare since we just had a truly it's better is also this kind of burnt sugar caramel thing. It's been actually in a lot of it's probably because of the the way they make the mall. Let's keep clawing. I'm going to try this grapefruit clot because i'm this is what i would gravitate towards. If i were on the beach thank you offer adopting claw instead set of waclaw. I okay we have got some head. Some some positive head nodding legit good. Yeah the bars pretty low like the success excess fill rates like the the margin between the two is pretty pretty narrow. I feel like the the goal with these. It's like be aggressively fine <hes> to wrap up <hes> i think we've decided added that these things exist there a fact of life very practical <hes> in terms of how good they were operating within a small window of quality and even the worst one of these someone gave to you at a party. You're not gonna turn it down right now and the best one. You're not gonna get excited are you. If you're at a convenience store that's a block away from the party and they have the worst flavor and you can choose to walk five blocks and get the best. Don't just get the worst one yeah and go to the party and live your life packing budweiser. I i think a major point that seems so obvious that maybe we don't need to talk about it is that if you really wanted to to be healthy you would just not drink and i think that i think that one of the reasons that alcohol things get so trendy and become so adopted by the culture in an ironic or an on ironic way is that i think that a lot of like bro culture especially but like party culture are looking for like minor justifications vacations and ways that it's like they legitimizes their drinking or makes their drinking feel like they're part of a movement or a fun thing and the kind of drown oh now at the idea that they're just drinking to get drunk but anything with party culture people are very open about that. They're drinking to drink but i think we're gonna get drawn tonight. Sure sure bedtime. Someone would say that but i'm also looking for these like slight justifications like let's have a claw night. It's a way to keep it from being depressing in a way a to prevent having to admit what the thing truly is and that's why i feel like summer summer. There's always a thing that's gonna be fun and in cutesy and it's just a way to distance ourselves from what's actually going on here. Which is that. We're all getting drunk. People get drunk. People nervous wanna be chilled. Clause laws away to hide your disorder. When we get back from break. We are going to go over the biggest food stories of the week.

We talk about the biggest food stories of the week. It's separate them with the sound of a ding like this and <hes>. I have nothing else to say. I've got my seltzer ready. Let's get into it. Okay daniel the big story of last week. As you know was the popeye's chicken sandwich and how obsessed everyone was with it. People were waiting in lines across the nation to get the sandwich this week. Popeye's announced that they are officially sold out much officially gone right. They're not officially sold out of. The sandwich said they're going to sell the sandwich but for now we are we're done. We're officially sold out there being cute with sharing their sold out. They're just they're infrastructure can't handle the sandwich right now yes so they are halting the sale of it so a lot of people were saying. Why can't you just bring my own done. Sell me put the sandwich together and then someone saying it's different. It's not just chicken sandwich yeah so it's a it's a larger piece of chicken. It's a larger piece of chicken tenders so they're sorta the chicken and then the here's the interesting part. I think they tweeted later want to be the first to know when it's back download the popeye's app and turn on push notifications. Oh yeah so it's all man is in yeah trying. They get trying to get some downloads. We've established that it is the biggest fast food release <hes> certainly of of our time and i don't i think they couldn't have been expecting something this great so so they must have regrouped this week and they were like how can we how can we channel this into something and they thought let's to drive traffic really really honestly. They had to regroup to figure out. How can they get a handle on this thing because it was getting a little out of control and they don't want people have the bad customer experience that they were having having waiting and having things we sold out stories were starting to come out about workers who had terrible experience being on the other side of it and had to work overtime loss. I think they had had to just like shut it down for a minute. Yeah bigger stuff out harness that fire yeah because this is out of control. How do you think it'll what do you think's going to happen when they re really said when they say okay. We got it back. I don't know i would assume that the interest would die down after a couple of weeks but maybe not yeah. Maybe people are just going to be obsessed this for a long time. Do you think in your opinion if they just shut it down forever has popeye's grown in popularity from this time time or bed. They got some new customers for sure but don't you think those people who are the new customers like i'm less. I feel like personally i didn't. I never got my hands on a sandwich. I'm less likely to go to popeye's now if they don't have it. Why because i'd be frustrated that i couldn't get. I think the i think the win is for the people who did not know popeye's went into try the sandwich wjr and then they're now new customer <hes> and the people who were die hard for popeye's now appreciate that there's a new item right. I'm curious whether this grew through their customer base if they never released sandwich again and other chicken sandwich news this week k._f._c. released a beyond chicken fried chicken sandwich sandwich meaning baked chicken. What is interesting about this is not that they are doing a fake chicken chicken sandwich but that they released it. One store and there were crazy z lines so people now just love lining up fergie thing well. They don't know if they're going to stumble into the next big chicken sandwich and be one of the early adopters also wonder cynically weekly if they made this release primed it four lines like they released it in one place that had bay publicity push rush like they were trying to recreate they wanted to be part of this narrative of people waiting in line for chicken like how nightclubs key people outside yeah or if they moved did up to try to catch some of this wave yeah like maybe they were going to release the next month and they're like wait. A minute people care about chicken people care about new product releases involving chicken. Yeah we miss the the chicken boat with a sandwich. Let's do this. That makes a lot of sense. I mean it's impossible to look at a release like this and not be like. How can we take some of how can we take this blueprint print and apply it to our own release. Would you eat a beyond chicken. Fried chicken kentucky fried chicken kentucky chicken. Yeah i mean i'll eat all these things. I want to dave even busters last night and got an impossible burger with bacon on it only because i would be like that'd be a funny thing to take a picture of how was dave and buster's busters relevant. I've heard it wasn't that good though right isn't that the word on the street like isn't that isn't it interesting though i feel like the one thing about the popeye's popeye's chicken was that it came out and they weren't throwing gas on the fire. Initially it was just a gimmick. There were people word of mouth. Tweeden media hang like boy. This new sandwich is really good ca- sandwiches come out all the time you know yeah. I think it's a big deal though i feel like the first i've we talked about this before but the first time time any of these brands released their first fake meat product. It's now going to be a thing yeah who hasn't mcdonald's mcdonald's. W._b._z.'s are yeah mcdonalds mcdonalds whatever they release. I it's gonna be momentous. Yeah so daniel recently weightwatchers now known known as w._w. Launched an app for kids and we have asked one of our writers and editors amy mccarthy to come on the show to tell us about it. Hey amy i hi. How are you guys so tell us what what is the app doing. And who are they targeting so the app targets kids as young as eight. I think equal to about age seventeen so that they recommend recommend for the program the app itself is free <hes> and you can download it on the app store which i did and you put in your height and weight and your what your goals are dr. They offer you some options which are pretty sad. Including of course lose weight. Make your parents happy and things like making getting more friends or being more confident. This is kind of a really bad thing overall and once you're into the app and you've set your goals you can input the foods that you eat every day so if you eat cheeseburger that would be a red food <hes> which would be something that you would want to think about or be mindful of i think the for wording that they use or yellow food or things like bread or peanut butter and things like that and then green foods going in the same lake like red light green light system that you're familiar with are things like fruits and vegetables pretty much it. I don't think there are any other foods that are not fruits or vegetables and those are things that you can and eat kind of infinitely into ram but you're limited in the number of red foods. You can have every day like kinda use. The app is if i was the <hes> overweight according to the b._m._i. Scale thirteen year old <hes> an input you know various ranges of foods like one day i said that i ate pineapple all day for all three meals and that didn't really seem to trigger anything with the with the app and so the for those who don't know weight watchers or w w th it's based on a point system so they're kind of taking what they do there but taking the points away for the kids so it's just red light green light yellow light right. It's those worth simplified and according to company this is a program that was developed by stanford university to kind of make that process easier and they say it. It doesn't create the same kind of issues that maybe assigning a number valujet might do in terms of how you things. I you know good versus bad art. We know that's not the case right. Kids aren't stupid made me when you said that it asks you questions at the beginning like what you wanted the app for <hes> what do you you think they were doing with that information. Was it changing your diet. If you wanted to make more friends or was it just to collect that data they are really interested from a market research perspective and what's motivating young people to lose weight. I firmly believe that curb. Oh and any other things that we watch our says. The target children is just a plan for the future is you can create that customer. At age ten. The likelihood that they're going to diet for the rest of their lives is incredibly currently high but just like dating apps are meant to help you meet someone so you no longer have to be on dating apps within the point of a diet app be to help someone get quote unquote healthy so they no longer have to use a diet up a weight. Watchers is a lifelong program and especially with the original wait. Why refuse to call it. W w still away watcher there you know the the people who lead weight watchers meetings or what they call lifetime member earth people that have maintained their goal weight and you're supposed sixty on the plan forever. You're supposed to keep tracking so that you don't slip up and have have to lose the weight again. They very much sell it as a way to healthily.

"They set us up in this empty room with a folding table, having a some fraternity PTSD here. Seltzer in little shot glasses. My gosh, fruits are off the chart. It's some sort of berry. It's like a raspberry, a like a pony is for sure. Fun. We tasted our way through six seltzer 's and put down all of our flavor, adjectives and the gas to graph app. And then we were done and together with our flavor preferences, and our demographic information. The boys formulate our very own seltzer flavor. We're operating from a fairly huge database that we've built over the years. So when you taste right we're not just modeling you. We have to model hundreds of other variables about you and people like you in order to allow the eye to make this specific prediction. In most situations, we're actually not predicting for an individual, we're predicting for population. So this is going to be an interesting variation on that a few days later, we went back to AFS to see what they had come up with. And there was actually a bit more furniture in the office before we began. I asked Jason if he thought they'd cracked my seltzer code I was serious. So we think that we have your preferences mapped pretty well. But we are also trying to develop something. That's unique and innovative in something that you've never tasted before. So there's a probability that this formulation is good for someone like you, but not specifically you. That's a risk that were willing to take back the folding table. They had Julian an eye blind taste for new flavors of seltzer. We were told that some of them would be pre existing seltzer flavors available at stores and some might be new formulations made by Jason Ryan drink one. I don't know why I think such a thing against pairs number.

"Legend, this is your life. You've been seltzer forever. Well, yes. In my family. It's in my blood. I'm fourth generation. So my grandfather started the business in nineteen Fifty-three. Although he's been a seltzer men long before that just delivering schlepping cases. Now doing the same thing. Seltzer men. That's officially what it's I am. All right. Even if you're a woman. I'm with her there to all right? So you credit an eighteenth century Britain Joseph Priestley, a man who invented seltzer tells a little bit about him. So Joseph Priestley figured out for the first time. How can we take carbonation and and get it into a glass of water previously. If you wanted carbonated water, you had to travel to a spa, and you had to have the means to leave your business. We've the city and go out to this place where you were going to drink this carbonated water, maybe bathing, his carbonated water or Joseph Priestley figured out that if you held water, and you mix it up with c o two and you and you held under pressure in that water was nice and cold. You would get carbonated water. And for the first time we have ability to manufacture the water that was likely spas. And at the time it was all medicine. It was medicinal. You drank these things because it tastes the good because you wanted it with chocolate syrup or to mix an egg cream you had it because you had some problem in the water would help you. And so now for the first time we have the ability as a result of priestly to make it ourselves. And it's very smart, man. In Switzerland who many of us. No, no, Schweppes moved to England made the first seltzer company and the rest is history. Well, I think it's great the way Priestley discovered it because of beer, that's right. He worked he lived next to a brewery, and he was fascinated. He was a religious man by trade, but he loved exploring science he actually had a relationship with Ben Franklin who inspired him to do his own research. And he was fascinated by what would happen in the back of this brewery when the hops was was forming, and he saw the gas was forming above the liquid and he thought wow. What if I held a book some water and switched it back and forth inside the gas with with something happened? And that's when he first saw that wait a second. It's not only going into the water. It's staying there. Either went back who's home next door his own laboratory. And he then figured out how he could not only do it himself, but communicated to others, and I'm gonna read from your book after that happened you right? Priestley took great pleasure in its discovery later calling it his happiest but never a businessman sawn little immediate scientific or practical value. He may never have fully. Appreciated that it transformed. The rare into the common up ending the economics dictating who could access seltzer and where with no drive to publish his findings for years has technique remained. The providence of the honest, Whigs and other members of the Royal Society the world had no idea that humanity had just gained the power of phys. So that goes to your point that it stayed among the upper echelons. That's right. But then there was the head of the navy and is in Great Britain. And being a navy power. They were very concerned about the problems they had on the ships of the cellarman contracting scurvy, which we know is because of a lack of CO two they didn't know that at the time but previously thought well, maybe it was because of that maybe if they were seltzer machines on the British naval ships, they can stop seltzer and it didn't work. They might have had a better trip because some seltzer to drink. But eventually he wrote it those findings and those findings what he shared with the world back at a time when it was so important for people to share the science as people learning new things because that not only helped humanity be healthier. But also lead to. Tremendous innovations of business and help people prove their lives. And I think this is the most hilarious title what he finally published. It impregnating water with fixed air, right impregnating water. That was the the scientific term at the time for getting those bubbles into that water. Okay. You mentioned Jacob sweaty. Explain to folks how he took it to the next level. So Schweppes with someone who read Priestley's pamphlet. He lived in Switzerland. He he he dealt with watches, but he had this idea that maybe he can build a company around it. And he he moved to England and went from Joseph Priestley having the scientific idea to swaps having a company and within a few decades swept was the official seltzer of the Queen. So how did the seltzer come from? So seltzer is one of those words for food product that actually describes a particular place. We have largely forgotten it. Seltzer. Neater shelters is actually the name of a town in Germany, which was one of those many spas that I referred to earlier and like many of those spies. They would bottle their water in clay jugs in the seventeen hundreds and sixteen hundreds and they would sell all over Europe. And as they sold people would change the name in different, localities, neater, Celtics became Celtics and soldiers became seltzer. And that's what we know. It has today. Alex, let me bring in. And so I've got a bottle of let's see that sounds good. It's actually a real. This thing is heavy. Yes. That's a siphon bottle. Explain to people what I'm holding. So that is an original siphon bottle. It's actually hand blown in Czechoslovakia. So it's a very thick glass. It's got a metal siphon top. You could hear the glass when you. And it's got a siphon trip a trigger on it. So what's great about these bottles? It holds the pressure at sixty pounds. So it's a very very strong tasting seltzer. When you when you dispenser from the trigger on the seltzer comes out. You could go ahead and set your sure. Right. Sound? To me, we've reported to me. So that's sixty. That's that's a very very strong seltzer. It should hurt when it goes down. You shouldn't be able to go. Good seltzer in our seltzer is very a lot of pressure in there. It's very charged, and it's just a very good pure taste. What's inside that bottle is New York City tap water that we triple filter through sand charcoal and paper, then it's mixed with CO two. There's no salt. There's no chemicals. Nothing. It's just plain filtered new city tap water seal too. So where do where do you get the bottles? So the bottles are no longer made manufactured we have acquired them through many seltzer men over the years. There were many many many seltzer men back in the day. Gombrich? Seltzer works is now the last remaining filling station in Brooklyn seltzer boys same same family. But we deliver the bottles one of the last seltzer men out there, and Alex is one of the many seltzer men and women in seltzer Tokyo and one of the other ones, Walter backer, man, who Alex knows well says he doesn't own the seltzer siphons he's a custodian he has taken them and Herod them from the men and women who deliver them before him and he's holding onto them for the next generation. Right. And that's that's the biggest thing about what we do. We preserving the history of these bottles if you hold it up, and you look at it. You could see an etching from an old seltzer all etched differently K A U R F right from Brooklyn. Right. Looks Bronx the Bronx. Okay. So right. Most of the balls we have our either Brooklyn Bronx Manhattan, just in the general area, but we've acquired bottles from other seltzer men that are all over the the US. I mean seltzer. There was a lot of seltzer men all over the country. These things are heavy, and they're heavier when they're full and we deliver ten of them at a time up. Many flights of stairs. It's it's hard work the seltzer workout that's right, right history. Written in bottles right there. It's pretty cool. We're talking to berry Joseph. He wrote the book seltzer Topi the extraordinary story of an ordinary drink and Alex the vice president of the Brooklyn seltzer boys. It's engineers talked about a bite. I have a friend Zoe she's nine and she calls it spicy water. That's her name for you know, you go across the big pond in its congas or whatever. What makes you kind of touched on this? What makes for good seltzer? You need to have cold water and the c o two that impregnation process has to happen under pressure, and it has to be held there. As Alex was talking about before the glass siphon that you're holding is really thick. It can hold pressure better than anything else that you can buy store better than a can or a bottle made a plastic until you need that at the same time. You gotta keep it cold. You don't want to keep it on the side of your fridge. You want that cold when you put into a glass, and you want to drink it right away. And if you mix it with something like if you wanna make an cream mixing it. We're talking syrup and milk. You only have a few minutes to drink keep that carbonation. So we were kind of going the timeline of seltzer Sriracha Schweppes. What was the next? Would you say what was the next milestone and seltzer? Well, let's bring it to New York City. Yeah. All right. So in the nineteenth century John Matthews who's a born in Britain comes to America and becomes the soda fountain. King. Right. And so he was able to do. And then with his sons who continued after him. Was manufacturer way to not only make it in a factory, but how you can do it at a soda fountain. How you can have the devices where the carbonation would happen in the pharmacy itself and later this candy stores and soda fountains. So you can walk up and order, a two cents plain. And when that happened you were no longer having people drinking seltzer because it was good for you. You were drinking 'cause it tasted good, and you had to start taking out the harsh chemicals that gave you that medicinal quality. Take me this little taste and said putting in sweet flavorings indifferent syrups, and then you had this explosion of soda jerks, competing to make the best. Cream the best banana flip phosphate, the best lamb, Rickey, whatever it was and competing with someone on the other three corners coming up with one flavor after another with very rapid innovations. What do you to make of the incredible interest in bubble water? Now, I don't even want an I don't know. I can I call across seltzer in front of you, Alex. Okay. Maybe. My guest, but I have a feeling that. That's not you. It's apples and oranges. Just when I think of seltzer I think of my seltzer. It's just the way it's supposed to be playing. There's no flavoring just as it is. I mean, it's just watering CO two. I'll ask bury the historian sure a little more Alex gets to be a purist and respect that. But seltzer has always evolving, in fact, as we mentioned the original seltzer tastes nothing. Like what Alex delivers today, and I'm thankful for. I'm glad it tastes like what he delivers today. But it changed from something that was full of of of all sorts of properties that are coming out of the ground is something we can manufacturer selves and keep it as pure water to. Yes, things that people can add flavor to not just at home mixing syrup, but also buying store of buying the Croix seltzer something that's very much defined by the people who were drinking it who they are how they identify and where they're located in both place and time, it's constantly changing. It's both its own thing. But sometimes it's associated with water. Sometimes it's associated with soda and often the battles over. History about should it be taxed or not taxed or who could sell. Who or where those lines were drawn? But the more you try and fix it. More seltzer tries to escape something else. And that's part of what makes it such a fascinating thing to learn about could you can never pin it down. When was it? First mass marketed to Americans it came to it was John Matthews who made the ability for people to go into a soda fountain here down in Wall Street, for example, to get a glass of of seltzer in the eighteen twenties eighteen thirties that was the first time that the masses can't access not just those who had the means to travel to a spa, but it really wasn't until the end of that century when what Alex is doing generation upon generation really began where people could have soda works where they could have these glass fins that came over from eastern Europe carbonated after filtering the local municipal water and having the practice of first bringing them out via horse drunk the trucks. And then eventually, you know, how do you get around? Now, alex. Van but you guys use the old crates, right? Oh, yeah. We so everything that we do is all original. I mean, we read haven't changed. We haven't reinvented the wheel..
