A leaping edition of Beer links!

I found no actual leap day
 beers, just this label.
I'm rather disappointed.
(Original here)

If I was a craft brewer or even a half way decent homebrewer I would brew a leap beer, available only on February 29. The real question would be what type of beer it should be? My first thought was it should be something that would be able to age up from one leap day to the next. My second thought was completely opposite. Make it something so fresh and perishable it has to be enjoyed immediately; after all you may not make the next leap day. On that note…

Fun event with some excellent rare beers. Read our take on Brewvival later this week!

If this comes to Virginia or Maryland Sunocos then I may have a new favorite gas station.

It is always interesting to see where the money is coming from and how much it can buy. In this case quite a bit.
