NYCO, my correspondent in Syracuse, alerted me to this Syracuse Post-Standard story about Polish beer. Written by Quill and Tankard award-winning writer, Don Cazentre, a staff writer with the paper, it notes what is new in the local market.

We are just not used to such things. Even the national Globe and Mail hides its wine column at the very back of the Style section while leaving that unimaginably bad page 3 of the section on...page 3.
