Fortune: Top Six Beers this Fall

CNN/Money: “6 Best Beers for this Fall

Interesting bit… esp. this one:

Brooklyn Brewery: Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout

A deep brown imperial stout with complex flavors. When it’s fresh, there is a strong roasty character to the brew. Aged, it takes on the character of sherry. Goes well with a chocolate dessert. Availability of this seasonal brew is limited to eastern states.

BBCS is still, to this day, one of the best beers I’ve ever had from the tap.  I remember going to that bar in Manassas, having it drawn and really, really enjoying it.  I’ve had it several times since, in the bottle, however, and just didn’t like it nearly as much.

Miller Time

Inadvertent advertising choices by keywords can be fun.

Don’t know if anyone else will get the same thing, but I’m sitting here reading this article about Bode Miller talking about skiing drunk… and what are some of the ads I see on the site? A big Budweiser flash ad and a Google-affiliate ad for Millerbrewing.com/MGD.
