Fons Oerlemans has crossed the Atlantic on a raft, in a boiler and in a truck. This summer he plans to make the voyage in a green beer bottle. The 50-year-old Belgian engineer has spent the last three years designing and building a bottle-shaped hydrofoil 36 feet long. It has a cruising speed of 4O knots. He calls the craft "Spirit of Heineken." In June, Oerlemans plans to sail his steel bottle the 3,000 miles from New York to England in a bid to set two world records--the first Atlantic crossing and the longest distance traveled by hydrofoil.

A bee in a beer bottle fatally stung a golfer as he was preparing to tee off at the Medinah Country Club, authorities said. Elmer Kurzka, 60, apparently suffered an allergic reaction to the sting, but officials said toxicology tests to determine the exact cause of death were not expected for several weeks. Kurzka, of Arlington Heights northwest of Chicago, was stung Saturday when he took a drink from the bottle and the bee entered his mouth, said Du Page County Coroner Richard Ballinger.

As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors dropped one count of assault with a deadly weapon.

The 36-year-old man was rushed to Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center in New York City when the incident occurred, according to a letter published in the New England Journal of Medicine. "This case highlights the hazard of opening bottles of carbonated drinks with the teeth," wrote Drs.

It is unreal the way some of the San Francisco Giant fans act toward the Dodgers at Candlestick Park. The way the fans throw things at the Dodgers, and yell obscenities that can clearly be heard on radio and television is just disgusting. About six years ago, I was visiting San Francisco and went to Candlestick to see a Giants-Dodgers game. I could not believe the way some of the fans act when they go to a baseball game. Instead of them going to the game to enjoy it and have fun, they act like it is a war. I saw one fan throw a beer bottle at Jay Johnstone and another player as they walked across the field.

Natalie Nichols review of the LA Weekly Awards makes it sound like the Streetwalkin' Cheetahs were just being cool and doing their punk rock thang ("At a Raucous Show, LA Weekly Music Honors Go to Beck, Gray," July 1). Perhaps Nichols was unable to see what really happened. Fact: Lead singer Frank Meyer drank from his beer bottle and then spit the contents onto the first two rows of the audience, which included lifetime achievement nominee Big Jay McNeely and other nominees. Then Meyer threw the beer bottle on the ground at McNeely's feet.

Craft beer fans in Los Angeles have never had more choices for local beer, and you're not limited to enjoying fresh brews just in the brewery's tap rooms or buying bottles or cans to take home. One of the best ways to enjoy the freshest brews at home is with a growler -- a specialized glass jug that you can have filled and re-filled at nearly all of L.A.'s local breweries. Historically, growlers were metal pails with tight-fitting lids that were used to take beer home from the saloon.

For "The Hangover," a movie about a bachelor party gone a little too wild, set decorator Danielle Berman didn't have a lot to guide her when thinking about how to trash the hotel suite the partyers wake up to. "Not a lot was actually written" in the script, she says. "The scene was just described as 'the destroyed suite.' " The crew had two days to prepare the results of the debauchery. "We just had to think: These guys took a form of Ecstasy. What would they be obsessed about doing?"

Andy Roddick ended a streak of 11 consecutive losses to Roger Federer on Thursday at the Sony Ericsson Open in Key Biscayne, Fla. Dominating with his serve, Roddick took advantage of Federer's suddenly shaky play down the stretch to win, 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-3, in the quarterfinals. Roddick improved to 2-15 against his nemesis. "I came in knowing that nobody has beaten me 12 times in a row," Roddick told the capacity crowd afterward. "So I had that on my side." In the women's semifinals, Serena Williams overcame a slow start to outlast Svetlana Kuznetsova, 3-6, 7-5, 6-3. Williams needs one more win for her fifth Key Biscayne title and second in a row. "I haven't won anything five times, except I win all the time in Uno," Williams said.

Nothing, it seems, can stop the Dodgers. Not an ugly, bottle-throwing, crowd-inciting outburst by outfielder Milton Bradley that resulted in his eighth-inning ejection Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium. Certainly not the Colorado Rockies, whose bullpen, worst in the majors, blew a four-run lead in the ninth as the Dodgers rallied for a 5-4 victory.

Anheuser-Busch Cos., the world's largest brewer, said it recalled 5.8 million twist-off bottles of Budweiser in 12 European countries, adding to a summer of food and drink health scares across Europe. Pieces of glass could break off from the misshapen rims of bottles improperly made at plants in Spain and Portugal, although the beer inside is fine, St. Louis-based Anheuser-Busch said. Reminiscent of a massive June recall of soft drinks by Coca-Cola Co.

Can you vandalize your own car? That may sound like a silly, hypothetical legal question that would never need answering, but an appellate court had to answer it late last year. Honest. A Kern County woman, Karla Kahanic, was accused of vandalism because she threw a beer bottle at her own car, a Mercedes Benz. Well, actually it is a bit misleading to say it was her own car. It was owned by her and her husband.

James Benning's article in the South Bay edition, "Pitch Touts the Joy of Treated Sewage Water," is unfairly critical of recycled water. This is one "new" water supply that actually has the potential to fill a good part of the huge water deficit predicted for the future of Southern California. Yet Mr. Benning chooses pejorative and derogatory expressions to spice up his piece at the expense of a perfectly good source of water. Over several decades and hundreds of uses of this water, not one user has suffered financial loss or any health complaints.

Councilwoman Ruth Galanter asked her colleagues and area residents Thursday to protest plastic beer bottles being test-marketed in Los Angeles, charging they are not recyclable. In November, Miller Brewing Co. became the first major brewery in the country to sell beer in plastic bottles with its Miller Genuine Draft, Miller Lite and Icehouse products.

Pete Slosberg studies the beer list with a practiced, and somewhat jaundiced, eye. Reluctantly, he orders a famous European brew and takes a sip. The photographer raises his camera; Slosberg, the Pete of Pete's Wicked Ale, immediately slides the bottle down the table so it won't appear in the shot. It isn't so much that the beer is competition. It's the bottle. It's green. Slosberg can't bear to be photographed with it. He has a thing about green beer bottles.
