How you can drink beer and save the world at the same time

How you can drink beer and save the world at the same time | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Relax, drink a beer, and save the Great Barrier Reef -- this Australian social enterprise is looking to the save the world with a brew.
Al Cannistra's insight:

Reminds me of an old story – back in my days of catholic school at a time when they were recruiting for priests and missionaries – the archbishop shared a story about someone he was in the seminary with. Apparently that priest was assigned somewhere in Japan and was new to the language. During his first sermon the parishioners were laughing and giggling but as the Japanese do, they tried to be very polite. The new priest was very frustrated and proceeded to end the mass much faster than would have been normal. Asking the altar boys for an explanation, he was quite exasperated to find out he just told the parish to drink more beer.

 

Wonder if he was reassigned to Australia now?
