    Weird how little y'all appreciate Scotch Ales. Too many of y'all are talking about Gueuze and Stouts. Hop off the bandwagon for a better quality of life!

    The first because I am drinking an Insanity right now, the second because I've got a bit of Harvest Dance left for afterward, and the third because I love a challenge.
