The LABH Daily – July 10

In tour news, we have added the Select Beer Store in Redondo Beach to our list of stops on the Beach Cities tour. What are we going there for? Ahh, funny you should ask. They have 12 rotating taps, where we will set up tastings of local brews for you, and over 350 bottles and cans that you can pick up for the ride. They’re good people and we’re lucky to offer them on the tour.

We have a wide variety of stories for you today: Does brewing your own beer save you Money? The Center for Disease Control has released a “how-to-survive a wedding” guide. Check out what the athletes are wearing to the Olympics and a few other stories as well.

Does Home Brewing Save Money?

It turns out that home brewing on average, saves you about $62 a year. Not bad. I do a lot of DIY activities, not all of them have been successful or safe. Here’s a list of a few.

  • Purify your own water.
  • Composting.
  • Jewelry making.
  • Grow your own vegetables.
  • Make your own clothes.
  • Make your own Movies. Rom-Com’s are preferred.
  • Home government. Totalitarian regime is preferred.
  • Make your own car. Safety not guaranteed.
  • Chia pet.


These are just a few examples of all of the home projects I’ve tried.

CDC Now Offers a Guide to Surviving Your Wedding

I have a wedding coming up, this is no joke. I have very few requirements, which include having craft beer present, hosting the reception somewhere that stays open late, and that there is at least one use of a helicopter. I’m not going to give away how we plan to use it, just in case you are planning on attending, and if you are, I recommend you bring your own gas mask. It’s gonna get wild!

Here’s a Look at What the Olympians are Wearing

As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts, I have a strong respect for the athletes in the olympics and a healthy admiration for how beautiful all of them are. That being said, why do we put them in clothes at all? I say let them strut naked like the olympians of old, showcasing what immaculate bodies they have crafted of themselves. Now, I don’t feel the same way about the famously less fun Winter Olympics, but for now, I vote for the “let it all hang out” approach to the XXX Olympiad.

Tip: How to Tell if Your Propane Tank is Empty

I can give you a laundry list of ways NOT to test if your propane tank is empty. First place? Take your tank into a small place, like a bathroom or a small car, open the valve and wait for a little while. If you can still breathe after 10 minutes it means it’s empty. That just wasn’t a good idea. Made for a very interesting nap. This video tip is actually neat, and very safe.

Church & State Owners Opening New Spot

One of the best restaurants in Downtown LA is making plans to open up a new French restaurant, called Spring, next year and we can’t wait. If you haven’t been to Church & State yet, you should make a point of it. It’s located in the SouthEast corner of downtown across from The Little Bear, which if you’re reading this you have probably been to. Check it out. Get their fries. It will all be worth it.
