I was at my friend Mike's funeral yesterday. His daughter (who I haven't seen since she left for college about 3 years ago) told me that her dad was always talking about my Fat Sam beer. He loved it, more than any other beer. He had told me that before, but I didn't realize that he actually went around telling others about how much he enjoyed this particular brew.
Today I'm brewing a batch, so I decided to make it Fat Sam as a tribute to Mike.
Mike always brought a ton of crappies to our annual Memorial Day fish fry, so the plan is to drink this at the Memorial Day get-together and lift our glasses to Mike.
