Take One Down, Pass It Around…

We open early today for NFL football games. Your morning bartender Randy is pouring the libations today and serving up the smiles he’s famous for. Come watch the major network broadcasts at 7AM, 10:30AM and 2PM. Maybe you’ve been following the HIGFFL travel teams at the Gay Bowl in Denver….check our Facebook page for live feed of the games….

We’ve got a super fun Sunday planned for you at Bacchus! Bloody Mary, cocktail or brew? Speaking of beer…

99 Bottle of Beer On The Wall…

Who in the world thought of this song?

Ninety-nine bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottle of beer — we know you’ve heard it, and we’re sure you’ve sang it. Though the song has a catchy tune, chances are the only time you sing it is when you’re stuck in a car for hours. Why? Because it takes forever to finish.

You’ve sung “99 Bottles of Beer” over and over again, but why? Or better yet, have you ever looked into who was bored enough to come up with it?

If you’ve ever gone in search of the origins of this tune, we wish you luck. We looked at numerous sources, and it seems as though the song doesn’t have a specific author. The only information that can be found is that it is believed to have originated in America and has been sung in the U.S. and Canada for decades.

According to Urban Dictionary, some believe the song was based on the fourteenth-century nursery rhyme “Ten Green Bottles.” This has yet to be verified, however.

It’s a shame that the songwriter is lost to history, but we’re more concerned about other things. For example, why are a bunch of school kids sitting around talking about something they can’t even drink? A little ironic, don’t you think?

Did you know about the trivial ending of the song? What happens when there’s NO BOTTLES OF BEER ON THE WALL? Well, you go to the store and buy some more…

Then you’ve got 99 bottles of beer on the wall...

Join us today for NFL, beer (or whatever you’d like to drink) and a good time. We open at 7AM. And TRIVIA NIGHT is tomorrow starting at 7PM!
