You do realize, of course, that Explosive Diarrhea would be an excellent name for a

While the title might sound like a parody of an Agatha Christie novel, this is no joke: it's a
genuine tragedy that took place in Mozambique this past week, where over 200 mourners at a

I recall two incidents during Covert Hops Society group brews that would count. The first was
during the 2012 summer brew; the brewers in charge put an immersion chiller into Tin Man (the

Have you looked at the list of clubs? Covert Hops Society has several members in the Marietta
area; in fact there was a meeting at the Red Hare Brewery earlier this week (sorry you missed
it). Check w...
