The book Ms. Fremont is reading at the end of the film? it’s Beyond the High Himalayas by William O. Douglas

 

Freemont Interurban IPA

Regarding the unidentified “chunks” (clearly, it was not particulate) – it turns out that was yeast. Since beer should not have visible yeast (because it’s f&*$%ing gross), our expert friend determined that the beer was either old or got too warm during shipping. So I guess Fremont is off the hook.
