    Wow. That's kind of shocking.

    yeah... a bit of scratching the head... but then Sam Adams makes some decent beers and Dogfish Head make some off the wall beers, a couple of which are fantastic like their Indian Brown Ale and Bitches Brew. So this gives them market share from safe (Boston Lager) to crazy (SeaQuench Ale)

    makes perfect sense
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    So Boston Beer is the brewery that makes Sam Adams ales? I guess I never knew that. Dammit. Do I have to start paying attention now, or can I just have a beer?
    Can this be the swan song? The final elbow?

    Tried a couple pints at a local watering hole:

    Stone Got Mad Hops Single Hop IPA

    Dust Bowl Hops Of Wrath IPA

    Both were very good. Hit the spot on a warm spring day.

    Just cracked a Darwin’s Forehead from Fonta Flora. It’s a salted brown porter, and, yep, it’s delicious.

    “Mashed with southern select two row barley from our good friends at Riverbend Malt House of Asheville, North Carolina along with a decidedly delicate blend of the finest caramel and chocolate malts. Fermented cool with our preferred house ale yeast for a touch of residual sweetness and a luxurious mouthfeel. Blended with North Carolina sea salt from the Outter Banks Sea Salt Company for increased quenchability. Brewed to comically celebrate Charles Darwin, the extraordinarily complex and contemplative father of evolution.”

    Never heard of it, but that sounds really good.

    It's just glyphosate. Monsanto assures us it's harmless, maybe even good for us.

    As it should be in any country with sane leadership.
