    Hoponius Union and my wife's homemade pizza. Delicious! The pizza isn't half bad either.

    Good for you, and good for your son! That's how we used to do it, too. Getting the wheels right is the most important part, and I did that, but the rest of it was totally up to my sons and I was just there to assist them with the work (and maybe make sure they didn't cut off a finger). Sounds like you both had a great morning- cheers!

    Very much a Stone brew, if you know what i mean, but a nice and mature flavor.

    Ommegang/Duvel collaboration, Duvel Rustica. Tasty and clean, but a bit on the light side.

    Amazing news. I've traded a few times for Ten FIDY - absolutely love the stuff. Great to hear I'll be able to get it on my own now! Thanks for the article.

    Continuing my under used glass day, couldn't resist grabbing the Gordon-Birsch glass. Now I'm thinking, maybe I should have gone with a 1L Lowenbrau stein o_O

    Bro, I'd say that's the "right" glass. Either way, you're drinking a tasty morsel.
