It sounds like something Lagunitas would brew. It sounds delicious.

SO, if it's a hobby, share the recipe. I could drink it during my business' bankruptcy process.

As a reporter, I'm getting a kick.

I would totally drink this stuff.

In the near future, I'll be forced to read beer bottle labels instead of newspapers during my (oft-referred to) BMs. That makes me sad.

I'm glad I got out when I did. Stayed too long, actually, but I didn't think I was fit for anything other than newspapers.

Pass me a six-pack: my daughter is going to graduate with a degree in Journalism...

The Gordie Howe Hat Trick: Pass me a six-pack: my daughter is going to graduate with a degree in Journalism...


That's probably still better than the guy I know whose daughter switched her major from engineering to film and graduated with a degree from (I think) Stanford that cost him six figures.

I subscribe to my local paper for a ridiculously low price. I'm guessing with the "Greatest Generation" pretty much gone, and the Boomers beginning to check out, that readership is sharply declining...( and they really need my business, so I'm getting it on the cheap...)

/ which is sad
// there's no other source for aggregated local news

Love guy's update:  he's now running a "mobile Neapolitan pizza service,"  booking events hand  over fist, and happy as can be.
