Let’s be honest. This is not on the same level as the fusion energy and laser technology breakthroughs that Harper writes about. However, the adult juice box is another “clear reminder that human beings are capable of creative solutions to seemingly impossible challenges."
Two years ago, a couple of retired Coast Guard dudes established a small brewery within walking/staggering distance of my home. A divine blessing, indeed! The Barley Naked Brewing Company is a 3.5 barrel brewhouse and taproom which is packed every night it is open. Food is provided by a wide variety of local food trucks. Business is booming… or it was until the coronavirus lockdown hit Virginia.
All was not lost. Coast Guard ingenuity was not to be deterred. The brew barrels kept brewing. Instead of selling beer by the glass in the small, crowded taproom, the brewmaster continued to sell beer by the growler at the door. A food truck is still stationed in the parking lot whenever Barley Naked is open. Life remains defiant in the face of calamity. Now this excellent range of microbrews is available in a 64 ounce, refillable adult juice box. You even get a new straw every time you get it refilled. Life is not just good. It is magnificent.
