Thanks, lostbyanecho. Now I know what to get my dad for his 60th birthday!

Kinda disappointing. That's not the Michael Jackson I was expecting.

He'll be at the Brickskeller in DC in March if you want to get an autograph. I think he planned to be there in September, but it got OBE'd by 9-11.

This MJ is older, therefore the gloved, child-molesting, MJ is the "other" Michael Jackson.

And it sucks one can't get beer and wine delivered in Maryland. I used to get my beer of the month sent to my office in the District, but it became quite a hassle carrying cases of beer on the Metro.

Bizarre, I just bought this yesterday for my dad's 60th. I am soo tempted to get the beers of Belgium set for me, but it is uber-expensive.

The gloved Michael Jackson seems more the wine-spritzer type anyway.

shoot, used to have a sweet rss feed of beer news, and now it appears to be dead.

I use to subscribe to a beer of the month club. Keep in mind that most domestic microbrews are not pasteurized, some are not filtered. This gives them a finite shelf life (three months or so from bottling if always refrigerated, less if stored warm for any duration). Belgian beers are less susceptible to this because some bottle conditioning is expected, even accounted for, plus the higher alcohol content will suppress bacteria to an extent. Ditto for IPA's, which were brewed to be hearty over time. But if your monthly selection includes Weis beers or lighter bodied non-pasteurized beers (ESB's or pilsners for example) then time is of the essence. My beer club frequently sent me bottles with pull dates long past expired.

Check those dates!!! Caveat emptor.
