Well, Memorial Day weekend provided a great time to test It’s Half Full, Honey beer! We popped one open on Sunday and tasted it and it was delicious! A more thorough review will follow shortly…

It’s 3:43 AM and I can’t sleep. I was sleeping OK and then it got windy and this fan we have in the window started making weird noises because the wind was trying to blow through it, or against it, or something… and that was it. So now I’m downstairs on the couch. Roodi came […]
