Don’t feel bad, a lot of people were wrong, even me.

Interesting article about the dark side of alcohol.

I think here is where small micro / nano breweries can really fill a void.

In site news!

Expect some beer love for Valentine's Day tomorrow when Sarah shares her five favorite beers and I drink a Brooklyn Valentine and talk about it. There may be a JGF beercast this week if everything works out and we will review a few stouts too. The big news though is our interview with those Mississippi cats from Lucky Town Brewing. We will be posting it on Thursday and Friday, so stay tuned.
