My friend Ed sent me this story about an amber ale brewed from a yeast that had been suspended in amber. For 45 million years.
Just sayin’ it’s pretty neat and you ought to check it out.
Finally, there’s a website to petition bars to carry beers you want. I’m not sure how effective this is; good bars pay attention to their clients and bring in beers those patrons want to drink. Bad bars don’t. But what the heck; maybe it’ll do someone some good.
