Have you seen the new Civil Life Oktoberfest cans? What’s up with that blue and white checkered design, you ask? Well, that’s not a checker since it’s a diamond shape, technically called a lozenge in heraldry. When arranged in this specific pattern, it’s referred to as lozengy. Dating back to the Kingdom of Bavaria’s Otto II (12061353), it’s currently the official flag of The Free State of Bavaria, the huge southeastern part of modern Germany. We printed the Bavarian lozengy on our can because for many of us Americans, the only/favorite things we know about Bavaria are beer, beer, and lots more beer at their massive annual Oktoberfest in Munich. Eh, there are worse things to be known for.
Available at the pub: $9/six-pack or $32/case. Prost!
The Civil Blog has returned. It is predominantly authored by Civil Life Barman, Dr. Patrick Hurley, who can be found tending to our bar patrons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He is also responsible for tending to our draft lines, which is recognized as one of our most important tasks. Special guest writers will appear from time to time. We hope reading this blog will give you much insight about the Civil Life and most importantly help you understand a bit more about all of us that work here and the beers we put our hearts into.
