Links to some interesting beer stuff:
Ancient brewers tapped antibiotic secrets: Apparently some ancient populations used beer to make antibiotics.
Heavy Drinkers Outlive Nondrinkers: Moderate drinking is best, but apparently even people who drink in excess live longer than those who abstain.
Octoberfests Out Early: This is a few days old now, but I agree with the author of this piece; doesn't it seem like all the Octoberfest beers are out a little too early this year? (Though I'm not sure why he posted the beginning of Tristram Shandy at the end of his post.)
Have a good holiday weekend everybody!
