That was then . . . this is now. Really cruel of you to post about beer on a Friday, when I still have 23 minutes of work left.

Countdown: 17 days until my bottle-conditioned Porter will be ready to sample.

I love reading about stuff like that...

I've been studying that period of history lately, just for the fuck of it, and this is the first I've heard about beer then. Beer is good.

My name is stavros, and I approve of this post.
