WOW, holy crap - I must not be in Verizon's "target area", I never saw that one! I'm boycotting now too. It used to be such a great, inclusively indie holiday. But now, *sigh*.

I'm going to start celebrating Pick Your Toejam Day. Let's keep it underground.

GOOD GAWD!

I just went to the microbrew tasting at the Michigan Renaissance fair. There was a Dragonmead beer there called Tripple or something like that, and it almost made me barf. It makes me sick just thinking of it. That wasn't just the worst beer, it was the worst form of liquid I have ever tasted. WTF?

So, they had FOUR beers to taste (wow! such a great fair!). This is how I rate them:

Magic Hat #9: Definitely the best. Below average.
Shiner Bock: Second best. Drinkable. Not great.
Under My Kilt Wee Heavy: I hate heavy dark beer, so the fact that I didn't hate this nearly as much as say Guinness must mean that it was actually pretty good. It sucked.
Dragonmead Tripple:This is what I would imagine yak piss would taste like after a few days in the sun.

In the end, the whole experience put me off of making beer.

On the bright side, now you aren't all so disappointing to me. If you had sold me on beer making and my beer had turned out as disgusting as all these microbrews, I would have been out a lot of money as well as sick.

Thanks for looking out for me and not encouraging me to make beer!
