  1. I can see the photo-creepo series already: in “First We Take Metchosin”, the vile slave/brewmaster, Rasputin, is goaded by his conniving brewery elf, Doobie, into guzzling a growler of Driftwood Fat Tug IPA, at which point the intoxicated Rasputin is subdued by minions of worker ravens, lashed to the cellar floor, then cast into the grain mill amidst cries of “Nevermore!”, and in turn, into the mash tun, lauter tun, kettle, the Wild Turkey Bourbon cask, and finally bottled as Driftwood’s Singularity Russian Imperial Stout (ABV 11.2%). Set to a mash-up of Boney M and Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies, this epic dystopian photo-creepo-series is sure to please beerophiles and shutterbugs alike.

    • That’s a terrifying turn of events! Of course, if one were to try their hand at writing a collection of similarly themed short stories, there might be a market for them…


  2. Early fall two Knights of the Blackheart banged on our door.Saint Jim of Nelson and his brother,the not so saintly but just as awesome,Peter,handed me a bomber of said stout.I had much too ponder.My wife of 14 years (have to admit I’m ballparking it here)had no idea the Sons of Strother had paid a visit and left the single magical bottle in my hands alone.Long story short…thanks to being cursed with a fucking conscience I ended up sharing it with her.Slept good that night tho’….coulda been the beer?!


    • Coulda been the beer? Mighta been the conscience? Coulda been the three or four six-packs, I dunno, but look what a mess I ain’t in. That wasn’t a party, and I had a good sleep.
