Why, this isn't about beer at all!

Seriously, though, looks like an interesting article. I'm going to read it when I get home from work.

It mentions Herbert Philbrick, double agent and inspiration for the TV show I Led Three Lives. Later, of course, Philbrick had an illustrious career as the owner of Herb Philbrick's I Led Three Lives lunch counter in Rye Beach, New Hampshire.

I am not making any of this up. Except for the 'illustrious'.

There's no mystery. Ales are like lagers but fermented using top-fermenting yeast and at higher temperature.

Sadly this will probably get labelled as some sort of communist apologist piece because of the funding source.

I thought it would probably get labeled as czarist propaganda, considering the poster.

Seriously, though, interesting article on an episode that really had a big impact on American history and the cold war. I am still not sure what to make of the Hiss case, other than Dick Nixon is an asshole.

I saw the article a couple days ago and though about posting it, but I didn't understand it so I didn't.
