As if promoting beer as a sophisticated beverage isn’t hard enough, now we have exploding Harpoon bottles. The Brewery has issued an urgent warning about its 22oz. bottles of Peche, which apparently exhibit a disturbing tendency to detonate due to the pressure of the secondary fermentation.
If you have any 22 ounce Pêche bottles, please carefully un-cap the bottles – if possible without moving them. We would recommend wearing protective eyewear and/or shrouding the bottle with a hand towel while un-capping.
Fewer explosions. Another way the Belgian lambics will always be superior to their American imitators 🙂
