Re: Beers

I basically agree with Stu on the highlights and lowlights, although I don't really remember the Wee Heavy because I had too much to drink.

Re: Raccoon's thread of (mostly fiction) book reviews

Congrats Rigs!

Rigs has been working on a secret project with his 100% runs for a while. Now that it's complete (and I know what it is), I want to make sure other people see his adorable accomplishment. It makes me smile, especially because it's so Rigs.
Check it out!

I have heard good things about the Publican and would like to go to a Goose Island location, I think, but I haven't looked at where those are relative...
