In an effort to expand on the “nonsense” part of my “Beer Reviews, Education and Nonsense” motto, I am starting a new series of posts that will focus on breweriana.  There will be larger categories such as beer coasters, beer signs, and beer posters, etc.  However, beer movies, beer commercials or anything else beer related can and probably will be included.

To get this party started I will be discussing beer coasters.  I have quite a collection of beer coasters as I am sure you do.  They make great souvenirs because  they are light, they fit easily into our pockets or carry-on bags and they are free! But even more than that, I think coasters are perfect souvenirs because that little piece of chipboard can remind us of a particular drinking session.

At some point you will probably start receiving coasters from other people.  I am fortunate because my Mother and Uncle are always on the lookout for unique coasters and the coaster below is one such gift given to me by my Uncle who lives in Europe.   I won’t even touch the wonderful fashion sense or the unbelievable action scene found on this coaster except to say that today’s coaster would probably look much the same except less clothes.

Literally translated this coaster reads “because life is not only labor”.  While the literal translation is a bit “Yoda-like” we know what it means. What is your interpretation? Leave a comment.

  1. No TV and no beer makes Homer go crazy?

    P.S. The coaster people look like ABBA

    • Don’t mind if do!

  2. You dart-retrieving slave deserves only the finest leg warmers and the finest beer.

    • … served to you by men who have not learned to button their shirts.
