At least until someone offers to guest blog this tosh and write some rubbish to post here and save me the trouble. Go on you know you want to.

Why get birds into beer? I donít know. It just feels right. Iíve been wondering how to do it (http://www.beergirls.org/).

Iíve figured out that patronising birds doesnít get you anywhere with chicks as last time I referred to my bird as ďmy birdĒ I got the following response ďI have not got feathers, I do not tweet, I do not eat worms, I am not a bird, yours or otherwise, and if you want to have sex again you will not refer to me as your birdĒ So I havenít. At least not in front of her.

I did sit down and design a beer for lasses. I sat down with the Lady Squeeze (not bird) and asked her what she was looking for in a beer. I got the answer ďSomething that looks like, tastes like and smells like a glass of Chardonnay. In fact Iíd like a glass of Chardonnay. You can keep your lout, and when you go get yourself one you can pour me a glass. Emmerdale (http://www.itv.com/Soaps/emmerdale/?intcmp=NAV_2004aa) is about to start so no more dumb questions until the adverts.Ē

I pondered how to create a beer that had all the qualities of a glass of chardonnay. Kind of like creating a patronising clear beer that banged on about its calorie content (http://www.marketingmagazine.co.uk/news/893152/Coors-targets-women-first-UK-clear-beer/), on the assumption that lasses are incapable of enjoying the range of flavours present in a lovely can of lout so instead I designed chardonnay beer. I did away with the malt and hops and instead wrote down ďmust use grapes instead of malt and hopsĒ

After a bit of googling to see whether anyone else had invented this lady beer I discovered Iíd only gone and accidently invented wine. Bugger. Back to the drawing board.

Then it dawned on me. What do girls like? Fluffy animals? Recipes? Gerard Butler (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0124930/)? Light Beer? Clear Beer? Patronising beer? What lasses like I reckon is knitting. What to do to get lasses interested in beer. This lady has figured it out here (http://taras-knits.blogspot.com/2008/06/beer-huggie.html). Thatís how you get chicks into beer.
