In popular culture[edit]


  • Everclear is featured in Minnesota humorist Garrison Keillor’s novel Lake Wobegon Days.[3] In one scene, a housewife throws her husband’s cup of coffee onto a kitchen fire to douse it, whereupon the coffee bursts into flame. She later finds a bottle of Everclear labeled “DON’T THROW OUT” under the kitchen sink, and correctly surmises that her husband had put a shot of it in his coffee...
