I was in Manching in the early eighties supporting some flight tests on the Tornado at MBB. The flight debrief was always accompanied with a small keg of beer. I miss those times.

I worked at MBB in Munich as a contract engineer 1978-82, and the software crew in each 3-man office regularly polished off half a crate of Spatenbrau before lunchtime. For the hardware boys it was a full crate. And of course, beer was available at lunchtime!

Dylan, thank you for your kind words. But it really takes a village to build a beer-delivery and productivity-improvement culture inside companies. It takes visionaries and risk-takers, people unafraid to take a few arrows in the back. Yet, turning the lens on ourselves, we have no beer-delivery & productivity-improvement system at work. What's up with that? We aren't walking the talk yet. To quote the immortal speech-maker John Belushi, "Who's with me?? Let's goooooooooooooo."

Well said Brian. This is an idea whose time has come. I believe we have evolved significantly enough as a civilization to recognize the innumerable benefits that beer provides for engineering and many other professions as well. I predict that this blog will one day be recognized as a seminal work in influencing the course of human events.

Scott, it is my undying regret that we had to jet off from our meeting with you and Adam in Maryland. I don't recall seeing a kegerator anywhere, otherwise we would have stayed for a while. ; ) When I see you next at a trade show or elsewhere, we will simulate the event at a local tavern!

Problem is the law. You need to get a liquor license, unless its a party and you get rid of all alcohol at the end of it.
