Honest Update

When I was thinking of unwelcome thoughts the other day, I had three things that I wanted to report, in the vein of just the facts Ma’am.  Well, when time came to do the post, I could only think of two things, the rotten tomatoes and the over-priced apples at Costco.  I tried to remember the third, but when my brain failed me, I resorted to the more greenly packaged apples at Trader Joe’s.  A stop by Gaper’s Block today reminded me of that other one.

I’ve crowed about the victories achieved by our local cheeses.  Thus, I must also report that our local beers did not do especially well in the recent Great American Beer Festival, at least on the scale of local cheeses.  Now, I’m plenty happy with my local beers.  I really liked the Oktoberfest beer from Three Floyds.  Still, I must honestly report ‘em as I see ‘em.
