They're invading your beer, too

I was enjoying a nice, cold beer on a hot day when I noticed the label on the can. 

Microbrew labels are kind of expected to be slightly odd, unique, kitschy, whatever. But not usually rife with symbolism. So when I see a gigantic head with the face hinging off of it and surrounded by onlookers, it made me curious. So I looked closer. The face is cracked, and one of the onlookers is crawling into the opening. Looking even closer, noticing the rays emanating from the head, and the eyes in the gaps between the rays. The amount of symbolism on this can is staggering!

Is this normal for Elysian Brewing? I was familiar with their ever popular Men’s Room Red Ale, so named for The Men’s Room radio show in Seattle, which has a basic sign-style picture of a devil on it (think male bathroom sign guy with horns and a spade tail). Alright, people who listen to rock like to joke about the devil. One instance does not mean they’re devil worshippers, but when combined with the label on Contact Haze, it’s enough to make one suspicious, and thus commands further investigation. So let’s keep going, see what else they have.

Alright, back to interesting again. A priest with an Egyptian-style headdress holding a brain while pointing an accusatory finger as though saying “this brain is yours” or something. The medallion on his headdress is intriguing, though. Not being a full-time student of the occult, all I can say is that it looks like a Chinese ceremonial mask, and it has a rather sinister expression. I don’t know about you, but I don’t get the warm and fuzzies when a pagan priest with a glowing brain accuses me of something. His motives are quite questionable. 

From their own website: “Is there anything more commanding than a finger pointing right at you? You have no idea why you’ve been selected, but curiosity gets the the best of you. The figure on Full Contact is not only indicating that you’ve been chosen, he’s literally pulling you into the cloudy void he calls home. It’s like being invited into a secret society that you have no choice but to join… trust us, you’ll be glad you did.” Moving on…

Single exposed eye on a hooded woman who’s holding a beer like it’s a witches’ potion? Definite symbolism there.

Still not getting the warm and fuzzies. A computer-controlled (note the circuitry at the top) sensory deprivation tank producing an altered state (or alters) at the behest of an AI? No thanks. Also, one eye open, and it’s white, showing he’s under control of the elites with no will of his own. The website describes under influences for the art “…a burgeoning rematerialization of self, psychologically taxing experiments on unwitting volunteers…”

This one came up in my web browsing, but I don’t recall seeing it on shelves, but it depicts Athena with a spear and a shield that displays an owl. It’s not the only beer they have referencing the Greek Pantheon. There’s also The Immortal IPA, which on their normal bottles displays a fist grasping a lightning bolt. I’m having trouble finding their alternate label, which is on their website but super small, which is in a 1st to 3rd century Greek style like one might find of Christian church fathers, and I can’t get much more. Anyways, the tagline on the website for The Immortal reads “there’s power in balance,” which for students of Vigilant Citizen, points to dualism: “as above, so below;” “as without, so within;” etc.

Now, considering how much symbolism is within the others, it’s safe to assume that there’s a reason why a dragon was chosen to be on this label. This particular dragon is a Chinese luck dragon. In the Chinese mythos, dragons rule the waters, reside in the seas, and are benevolent beings that provide luck and prosperity. The green one represents the East and controls wind and rain, essential for harvest. My personal opinion is that all cultures get some things about mythology and the spiritual world at least partly right. That the dragon dwells in the water is curious, as a particularly villainous dragon of prophecy and legend also dwells in the water, and has control of the air. In the Bible, the Leviathan is described as being dragon-like, dwelling in the water, and being invincible. Apocryphal texts link the Leviathan to Satan, who is the Prince of the Power of the Air. Curious that the Azure dragon depicted resides in the sea and controls the weather.

All things considered, Elysian Brewing seems to be controlled by the elites. Even the name calls to ancient Greek pagan mythology, indicating an idyllic afterlife for the elites that present day occultists and elites seek to create here on earth. In the movie Elysium, the rich elites lived off-world in a man-made paradise free from pain, suffering, and torment, supplied by the poor, suffering masses on earth below. We all know that the elites don’t care about us, only that we slave away to support them. They believe there should only be enough of us to provide for their luxurious lifestyles, but not enough to overpower them. They see themselves as gods, and call upon ancient spirits to do their bidding, while we are their cattle to be manipulated, used, and discarded for their pleasure. And they throw it in your face and down your throat. Welcome to the New World Order. What would you like to drink to numb the pain?

What do you think?

If you wander around a liquor store you will see lenty of occult references. Angry Orchard and Original Sin ciders reference the fall. Fireball whisky just puts the devil right on the label front and center. I’ve seen zombies, skulls, wizards and fallen angels.

That “priest” looks is a dead ringer for Aleister Crowley.

That priest is the Aleister Crowley pic just altered a bit. Tons of symbolism in the labels, I am not an expert, but I would stay away from this beer. The movie Elysium is a full hard on for the occult elite, so yes this is full of red flags.

Why does it matter to argue against these comments and why isn’t it bad of me?
Because natural ferments made from natural substances have been the mainstays of mankind since the beginning. Many medicines were given these ways.
Want to be angry with alcohol? Good! Be angry with the same people selling poison in our foods.
To make grain alcohol, an ethical processor wastes the first and last thirds.
Tell me that consistently happens in mass processing? All you buying well and call…?
Everything GOD gave has a useful purpose. MAN warps that.
Alcohol was historically used for pain control and for making of tinctured medicines.
Maybe try to reconsider whether an inanimate substance can be inherently evil, despite your experiences?
I want to continue to make medicines, which will benefit those around me, too. Ignorance shouldn’t decide this. I can abuse a bag of pork rinds, does that make it evil?

Yes, I fully agree. I’ve wondered about many things along these lines, like the suddenly legal THC alternatives…what’s really in them?
Any labeling like this I’d definitely steer clear of.
Sorry I got off on my tangent, but I am so sick of watching therapeutic substances we used to be able to buy freely getting wiped from the general marketplace because of simplistic thinking and people who had bad experiences or got lost in abusing them.

I don’t have any problem with intentional, medicinal use. Tinctures are fantastic. Strong alcohol is an excellent antiseptic. I used to occasionally drink some beer and whiskey recreationally too, until it became an increasing problem for someone close to me, and I started to notice the spiritual dimension of the addiction.
It was an Elysium beer that drove the point home, actually. I didn’t want the beer, but he handed it to me and I took it to be sociable; as I wandered around the yard with it I looked more closely at the label art. It was awful. I believe it was a woman in a slinky (possibly red?) dress, but looking closer her face and demeanor were demonically contorted. I poured it out and haven’t drank since. I am convinced that there is a strong spiritual, demonic mind-behavior control element to the commercial alcohol industry.
That doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t consider making my own small beer, or dandelion wine, or let a kvass ferment go till it gets a bit “stiff,” but the point that major alcohol suppliers are satanic shills (buyer beware) is a critical one.

Alcohol isn’t exactly G rated. Or PG rated.

Huh? Never heard of ‘small beer’ for kids because that’s how they made the drinking water safe in more populated areas back in the day? They drank it with breakfast.
None of these things are devilish, they are preservation methods and also ways to save and deliver natural medicines. So, of course, they have been scandalized. They are probiotics for the gut.
This is not so say unbridled use of alcohol (or anything) isn’t bad. It’s just to point out that the medicine is in the dosage and WHY should any free person hand over the decisions to treat themselves to other PERSONS?

Exactly, Sherry. What are we actually expecting from a booze company?

Beer is not booze. It’s not even wine, possibly country wine. Just stop.

I already answered this daN. Anything around may be made “occult” or bad. But I have tinctures that I can use to heal things when nothing at all is growing, and they keep indefinitely because of the booz – the alcohol. This is more black and white thinking.
Go ahead and ban this with the h2O2, the borax, the lye, the lugols, the pine gum resin, etc. Sometimes the trouble lies in the dosage or the misuse.

I am in the process of wild lettuce harvesting and processing. Have you tried it? I am using the dehydrate/reduce/dehydrate again to get a resin which I will put in an alcohol tincture. Just curious if you have tried it and what’s your success.

I have, I grow it deliberately in my yard, close to the house and forbid my husband to cut it. I make sure to let some reseed every year. I’ve used it as tea, which works, but I am still trialing the old ways. They used to make small, tedious slices through the stems, starting from the top and collect the ‘milk’ from each cut, can you imagine? I’ve read one person who tried putting it into a blender and extracting that way and that sounds far more my speed.
I like to try several different processing methods for everything I collect as medicine, because during the day, I may just want passiflora tea, but to sleep? I want a tincture.
I also like tincturing because even very common weeds, like plantain, don’t grow in winter, but you can still get stung or get a bad rash. I’m discovering its internal curative properties more now.
Why does it not surprise me that you know about this? lol

Plantain makes a GREAT infused oil, too. We keep some happy prickly lettuce stands on the property for the same reason.

No one suggested anything be banned. I just called beer booze because it’s a humorous word and that’s what people call it. You spent way too much time typing about this. I sincerely hope you get a hobby.
