Default new meaning to "island brewery"

I would love to write some pithy introduction to this man's short example in the New York Times of the iconic edge of our hobby, but, quite frankly, I do not think I could do justice to the balls that it takes to venture out (way out) into a life style choice such as this. But, nonetheless, kudos!

The first guy is just a short boat ride from where I'm sitting right now.

Yea, but does he trade homebrew for prawns as a means for survival?

Huh... huh... does he?...

Man, it looks like it would end up being "roughin' it" camping as a lifestyle.

I love going camping, but I'm not too sure I would like it living that way, though, I guess you would get used to it. Hell, people did it for centuries!

Is he... wearing pants in that picture?

'There's something deliciously unique about this beer.'

'That'd be m' pubes.'
