Also: probably in the wrong forum.

I ended up drinking 9 times my body weight in beer, broke three glasses over my head, 7 over others, ordered up 17 hookers for a little afterparty, held a cabbie hostage while running his cab through the Madison capitol doors, and I grabbed gator's ass.

My Great Great Grandfather farmed Hops in Sauk City, from 1867-1869.  It all fell apart due to pests or disease.
Take good care of your beer and your beer will take good care of you.
