    #77 doesn't ship until next week, but I thought it best to get it posted before American Craft Beer Fest hits.

    It's already dropped into my Google Play Magazines app, so I expect #77 to be available for purchase/new subscriptions via Google Play very soon.

    About the Cover:
    From Bavarian HefeWheaton to Wheaton's Own Going To California Pale Ale, Wil Wheaton and his son Ryan make a great homebrewing team. Details on page 46.

  2. This cover is the best cover ever. Although, you probably should have asked his royal geekiness to wear a starfleet uniform for the cover.

    I don't know what it is but something just bugs me about the reddit shirt. It just seems so...in your face?

    I wonder if he got some kind of endorsement from Reddit for wearing the shirt in the magazine cover???

    Meanwhile the logo of the propane company is edited out.

    I was reading the Feedback section of the magazine and wanted to make a comment back to reader JohnfromDublin... I think that you have misconstrued the meaning of "Pah-ty" to mean Patty (as in St. Patty, short of Patrick) when I think in reality it is the word Party with a Boston accent.

    The cover photo wasn't arranged for the cover. It was simply one of a handful of pics that Wil sent in.

    Design felt the propane logo was too distracting; and it was. Nothing more.

    Just got my copy today.
    Would I be wrong to say that it's just a little bit of a lag in delivery time?

    Please read the first line in the original post, and then add on the holiday delays; which caused both printing and USPS shipping delays.
  17. Just ordered a single copy of the June, anxious to see what you've got on Pittsburgh.

    Yeah, I'm still working on reading comprehension. Probably my worst subject area.
