Tallinn Crap Beer Festival 2020 updates

4 May 2020

A Crap Summary

We welcomed our guests with harms outstretched

And they reached out too:

[IMG: Welcome sign] [IMG: Gimme beer - hand reaching out]

After lots of musing, people cast their votes,
mostly by facial expression

And by sizes of contributions to the slop bucket
[IMG: Bemused] [IMG: Kairi musing] [IMG: Enjoyment?!] [IMG: The jungle juice bucket]

The clear winner of Worst Prize, or the Kung av Kräp award, is
... Kopparberg's Swedish Elk
The jury highlighted this entry's
 •  dry hopping with body odour and
 •  unique, all-pervasive weed character

Second-worst was
... Åbro Kung
It was not(e)worthy in particular for:
 •  tastes of onions and other vegetables

Voting was tight for third-worst,
so we kept going, in order to score the losers:
[IMG: Synchronised sipping] [IMG: More synchronised sipping]

Yep, it's confirmed - third-worst was
... Gubernija Traditional Bock
 •  messy,
 •  mushroomy,
 •  like a watered-down high-gravity brew

Finally, here is a grab of some images posted on Facebook

In only a couple hours, TCrBF will be a non-event.

For those of you who cannot be physically present
- such as our many finns in Fanland (recovered from Vappu?) -
we will be livedribbling all the chaos on BoozeTube.
You are cordially invited to join us at least in spirits!



18 April 2020

The countdown has begun

14 days to go...

Horrors are already self-isolating in the TCrBFridge.

To wet your appetite while you wait,
here's some info on two selected lovelies from our pile:

  • OIMG: Frowny]ne of them, booedbrewed under licence at Staropramen,
    has earned reviewer comments such as this:

            Just plain wrong

  • AIMG: Another frowny]nother of our fine Crap beverages is Argus Camaro,
    not so proudly produced in France.
    Some tasting notes from the Internet:

            fizzy, dry, cardboard box, corn beer



    1 April 2020

    Rumour: UNHAPPY HOUR will still occur on 2 May!

    [IMG: PET bottle held on high]

    !         TCrBF 2019 was highly suck-cessful, but...
            Our QUEST FOR THE HOLY FAIL never ends        !

    For this not-quite-public not-quite-festival
    - just a little before the usual hour, somewhere along Lai -

    we have some cans & bottles of horror in quarantine already.
      Be there or be sober!

    We hope to welcome all die-hard fans with open harms,
    though some fans may have to wait your turn to cry.

            That way, we'll spread only facial expressions of horror, as always.

    WANTED: Just a couple more terrors –
    Drinks you wouldn't want to touch with a two-metre pole



    20 March 2020

    We don't know where we'll be, but the Plague hasn't killed us yet.
    Stay tuned and stay safe!

    It has recently come to our attention that others are trying to muscle in on our turf.
    We may be able to stomach Four Loko, but we can't stomach that kind of behaviour.
    So let's be clear amid these hazy times:

    We're the ones who do toxicity, damn it!

    [IMG: BIOHAZARD can]

    We and our minions focus on bringing a poisonous atmosphere.

    So to all the other kids out there, big and small:
    Get out of our playground, ya bullies!


    The original toxic beer scene.

    Accept no substitutes!



    23 October 2019

    A T T E N T I O N :
    THIS IS A(n almost)  MAY DAY CALL!


    The crew of the FFS Regurgitator are issuing a distress signal:
    on 2 May 2020, we will cause you distress and anguish!
    Don't miss a drop!

    We've already collided with a Natty Ice berg, so TCrBF might be truly unsinkable!
    Or maybe there will be a huge shitwreck on the shores of Kultuurikatel.
    Either way, set sail for the yellow waters we'll pour down your throat!

    • No whales are harmed in the making of TCrBF.
    • In addition to yellow, past beer colours have included (but were not necessarily limited to) brownish, radioactive blue/green/purple, and disturbing.



    33 Septober 2019

    Something this crap doesn't just happen.
    Your twisted brainwrong makes TCrBF what it is(n't)!

    And save it for us:

    All things in cans or plastic
    All creatures deathly pale
    All things crap and drastic
    The glorious taste of fail.
