  1. Johnny,

    I don't know where you fall out on craft beers. I personally think that life is too short to drink bad beer. A friend of mine told me about an article with the kind of theme you might enjoy:

    "Brewers put local hops, barley, yeast and more into their beers"

    Beers are not only brewed in the United States but they are only using ingredients from local farmers.

  2. Wonderful. I'm not a huge fan of microbrews, but I'm a huge fan of Americans working. I will be using this for my next post.

    BTW- I'm a Budweiser man.

  3. Johnny,

    Budweiser works - but I like a full flavored beer.
