Joe Cocker – Dead at 70

Joe Cocker

Joe Cocker, Dead at 70.

RIP – Joe Cocker.

One of the formative musicians of my era has left us. My heart is heavy. Joe Cocker was, and is one of my favorite artists. His rendition of “The Letter” and “Unchain My Heart”

All I can think of is how to immortalize this talented man in a brew. I need to ponder this one a bit. I’m going to listen to his entire repertoire for inspiration. It’s the least I can do for such a talented man.

Any suggestions?

Strangely enough, I remember beer deliveries to my grandparent’s house when I was very young. My grandfather received one case of Ballentine Ale every week. The beer distributor would drive down the street, stop, sling a case over his shoulder and put it in the back porch shed. He would grab the case of empties, collect payment and leave

Fifty years later, it’s now legal…..

I think that every one of these here fifty United States of ‘merica need to pass, immediately, a Stand Your Brew law. Who knew that you didn’t need to brandish a firearm to defend yourself?

Seriously, beer gets maligned far to often. Here’s to a positive aspect of beer drinking. Now you can say, conclusively, that beer saved your life. And have data to back it up.

Why Lightningstone?

Why Lightningstone?I’ve had more than a few people ask why this name? It’s really simple. The family name is Blitzstein. If you plug the name into Google translate, using English to German, it gives you Blitz = Lightning, and stein = stone, hence Lightningstone.Just an FYI

On a separate note, looking for someone artistic to design a logo using the name. Some tasty beer awaits the person who comes up with a great idea….

I would love to make money off of beer, but this is ridiculous. I’d love to know who the winning bidder was. Sam Caligione? C’mon, let us know who you are. Wouldn’t it be great if one day someone put up a bottle of Lightningstone Brewery’s early samples and got at least half of that? Well, a gut can dream, can’t he?
