Brought to you by The Real Voice - Mel Allen. Providing voice over for commercials, podcasts, explainer videos, eLearning, telephone systems, and more. Samples and demos at  The nuns of Belgium's Maredret Abbey were struggling to scrape together the funds for renovations, and, about five years ago, turned to an occupation that they hadn’t done in centuries: beer-brewing. They’re eying expansion across Europe and into the United States as they have now packaged 300,000 bottles this year, hoping to reach up to three million bottles a year! The nuns, but the way, allow themselves one bottle each on Sundays.  Schwarzbier, also known as black lager, is starting to have its moment in the US where there has been a 400% increase in just the past two years. It seems especially popular in the warmer weather areas from South Carolina to Southern California where stouts and porters seem too heavy, but people still want the roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate flavors in a lighter body beer. Sign me up!  For your holiday this year, might I recommend a Loverboy? Not the band, or that “friend”. I mean ready-to-drink canned cocktail maker Loverboy. They introduced espresso martini canned cocktails - cutting out the inconveniences of now only having an espresso machine, but knowing how to use it. Now, the booze maker is unleashing two more flavors to their lineup to keep the holiday season - Peppermint Mocha and Salted Caramel Espresso Martinis  The Boozebuddy Update continues on video!
