Nice. I will say that with 3 kids, homebrewing is actually a good hobby. I can brew at home and have my boys (5 and 3) in the backyard while I'm brewing. And my baby girl is old enough now to hang...

In my neck of the woods, I just dislike the heat in August and September. Other than that, summer is great. No work, traveling, etc. I get to be with my kiddos everyday and not get up at 5:30.

My wife, myself, and my BIL threw a 60th birthday party for my mother in law yesterday. I picked up the Sam Adam's Summer Sampler at Sam's Club (figured it would be a decent compromise for a crowd)....

I know it isn't necessarily craft anymore, but Red Hook's stuff all tastes the same to me.

I think I might love Stone better, but Hangar is a close second. They consistently turn out a wonderful product and they have something for everyone (which Stone does not).

When I do a sirloin steak, I have the butcher cut it pretty thick, like at least 1.5 inches and marinate the heck out of it. If you get them pre-cut, they are just too thin and cook too fast. They...

I have to say that intellectually, a t-bone or bone in rib-eye are about the best steak possible.

It's probably harmless in the long run. Of course, this is coming from someone that lives in Southern CA and the air that I breathe on a daily basis is probably worse than any pesticide.

My wife and I inherited a early 90's fridge when we were first married. It wasn't horrible for energy consumption, but it wasn't great either. A couple of years ago, we picked up a brand new fridge...

I'm not a dietician or anything like that (heck, I have a BA in English), but I think saying that kind of stuff is dangerous. Sugar is what fuels our body. It is our energy source.
