Welcome! You guys should totally start a brew club. I have seen more than a couple of people on here from the MP area. I know one of the servers at MPBC is a homebrewer and had mentioned wanting to start one when I stopped in for a beer last summer.
I'm not the first guy who fell in love with a woman that he met at a restaurant who turned out to be the daughter of a kidnapped scientist, only to lose her to her childhood lover who she last saw on a deserted island, who then turned out fifteen years later to be the leader of the French underground.
