What Friday would be complete without the "stink monkey" being released into the forest? There's no way to put that into context except to say John is very funny. Not a lot to say today except that the beer of the day was Troegs Rugged Trail Brown Ale. Chip spent most of the morning defining "session beer." I love a good session beer, trouble is even a good low abv "session beer" kicks my ass after more than 3 or 4...so my session always ends early. A good session beer for me is called "water." Well enough of my low tolerance to drinking ten beers, and on to the real meat of the show. All kidding aside, for those of us who travel for beer, Chip's Tips on how to get it home in your special-beer suitcase and what a bottle of beer (glass included) weighs, may prove useful. Who knew a 12 ounce bottle weighs 16 ounces. Finally the big news of the day is new sponsorship for the show. Grotto Pizza appears to be gone and Bo Brothers on Wyoming Ave in Wyoming has taken their place. I'm not sure what happened or when it happened but I'll see what I can find out. We'll miss Grotto but we welcome Bo Brothers to the beer world. Cheers guys...great show.
