I'll tell you what I'm brewing...I'm brewing up a meaty deuce as I sit here at work in my shirt, tie and dress pants. My wife gets the day off...lucky ho.
Fuggin lazy union bastards. Here in the real working world, we get paid based on the services that we provide, rather than what a group of organized lawyers negotiate. As such, stupid holidays like columbus day are like any other day.
Enjoy your brew day, though.
In honor of columbus day i am thinking of brewing my "gave the indians the clap pale ale"
Go Union!!! BTW, I'd Sheet Rock and Frame circles around your Rat Ass.:rockin:
Just Mashed in about 5 minutes ago. Looking forward to trying this one in about 8 weeks.
