Vas Deferens Ale

Here is Caldera’s seasonal release. It is Vas Deferens Ale. The text explains that it has “a little snip of this and a little snip of that.” “This is an extremely rare release, as this ale is not meant to reproduce.”

For those who have been away from health class or Latin class for quite some time, Wikipedia tells us more about the vas deferens here. This ale is made by Caldera Brewing Company of Ashland, Oregon.

Charity Labels

Here are a few charity-themed alcohol beverage labels. They are becoming more common, to the point where TTB does have a specific policy. In general, of course the charity language has to be truthful and non-misleading — but also, it needs to have a bit of specific information (such as the name of the charity).

Vets Vodka is bottled by Terressentia of North Charleston, South Carolina and benefits the National League of Families (POW-MIAs).

Hope Wine is bottled by Sonoma Wine Company of Graton, California and benefits “our troops.”

Third, Charity Case wine is made by One True Vine, LLC of St. Helena, California and benefits “charities serving children and families in and around Napa County.”
