Finally science solves a real problem

It's lonesome away, from your kindred and all
By the campfire at night, where the wild dingoes call
But there's nothing so lonesome, so morbid or drear
Than to stand in a bar, of a pub with no beer
 
Now the publicans anxious, for the quota to come
There's a faraway look, on the face of the bum
The maids gone all cranky , and the cooks acting queer
What a terrible place, is a pub with no beer

Then the stockman rides up, with his dry dusty throat
He breasts up to the bar, pulls a wad from his coat
But the smile on has face, quickly turns to a sneer
When the barman said sadly, the pubs got no beer

There's a dog on the v'randah, for his master he waits
But the boss is inside, drinking wine with his mates
He hurries for cover, and cringes with fear
Its no place for a dog, round a pub with no beer

Old Billy the blacksmith, first time in his life
Has gone home cold sober, to his darling wife
He walks in the kitchen, she says your early my dear
But he breaks down and tells her, the pubs got no beer

Songwriters: Gordon Noel Parsons
A Pub with No Beer lyrics EMI Music Publishing

"The network operates out of the Internet of Things project set up by the University of Wollongong's SMART Infrastructure Facility and Burton says it is preferable to Wi-Fi which would require user names and passwords for each keg."

Hmmm, so far the IOT has had such a poor security record that I'd be afraid to drink it... it doesn't take much mucking about to ruin beer..

Nothing keeps forever, but most expiration dates are there to sell product, not because something actual goes bad at an arbitrary time. Hence the new labeling "best by" since claiming it became bad after a date was really fraudulent...

And yes, I have canned food at my cabin that is 20 years old, and is just as good as new. Once in a while something goes bad and a can leaks. I have found that flipping the cans over every year helps flavor and consistency. Yes, who but an engineer would have that kind of data...

"At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that 'news' is not something that happens to other people. He might learn how his ancestors lived and that he himself is no different--in the crunch his life depends on his agility, alertness, and personal resourcefulness." - Robert Heinlein
