    For some strange reason I hope it still makes the modem noise

    Will There Be a 2020 Season?

    That’s because, like the rest of us, he’s been stuck inside drinking beer for the past 4 months!

    This, damnit, this. For crying out loud DisneyTaxDad you CAN'T LOOK AT SIMPLE NUMBERS!! You have to look at numbers PER CAPITA. And this in a country with, generally, really healthy people. Had they applied that approach to Americans and all their co-morbidities we'd likely be pushing 160K dead now or worse. Their top epidemiologist admitted this week that their plan caused too many deaths, and Sweden hasn't even hit their peak yet: https://www.euronews.com/2020/06/12/poland-and-sweden-are-the-only-eu-countries-who-have-not-passed-covid-19-peak-ecdc People really need to stop holding Sweden up as some great success story.

    Not only that, but we have really, really great ashes. Maybe the best ever. We need to build a wall because people want to steal our ashes.

    Okay this post convinced me. Greg actually lives in Russia and he's trying to influence the lock-down. He thought he was on Facebook but got confused because he's been on a quarantine induced vodka bender.

    The Beer Thread

    For any of you in the west burbs, Bavarian Lodge now has growler carry out. I'm so screwed.

    The Beer Thread

    Tip for those of you just discovering Zombie Dust: check the bottling date. That beer drops off faster than just about any other beer. It's not the same 4 weeks after bottling as it is fresh. Still good, but not as epic. Toppling Goliath had this issue (and didn't seem to get it) when they started shipping Pseudo Sue to Chicago. A lot of it was 2-3 months old and people didn't understand what all the hype was about once they actually tried it. Completely different animal when fresh. Fresh Sue is amazing. Which, in a nutshell, is the embarrassment of riches in Chicago. You can regularly find pale ales and IPAs that have been canned in the last 7-10 days from the likes of Mikerphone, Phase Three, etc, and even picking stuff up from the dojo at Pipeworks. That said, some of the unfiltered IPAs actually could use a little more time. I find a lot of the stuff from Hop Butcher to have too much hop burn when fresh and really hits a sweet spot 2-3 weeks out.

    Abreu Signs 3/$50M Extension

    Okay, screw it. I’ve changed my mind - Abreu’s extension makes total sense. Eloy convinced me.
