Despite the fact that we’re all more alike than we’d like to admit, we get a surreal amount of gratification when we think we’re part of something the majority of our constituents aren’t.

It’s from our desire for individuality that craft beers were born from.read more

On my honor, I will try, to pair beer with my Girl Scout cookies.
The girl scots promote compassion, courage, confidence, and cookies.
If you’re lucky, around this time every year, a parent in your office puts one of those blessed cookie order forms in a communal area at work. And you, depending on how hungry you are at the time, order 2-25 boxes of Thin Mints, Samoas, and Peanut Butter Patties. (Don’t worry.
