Sounds like they might have dropped a couple mushrooms in there when he wasn't looking....

in the UK, it's not BMC. theirs is BNG: Bass, Newcastle, and Guinness. hahahhaa!!!

I loved John's when I lived in Iowa City years ago. The only problem is that it's in the midwest, so his american craft selection is limited

NO EVERYONE starts there. No man, just trying to make a point is all. Didn't literally mean EVERYONE in the whole world started there. I also started with hard liquor. But Karkov and Windsor, then found out better and better stuff. Looking back I hated being young and poor and not knowing what was actually in the store.
