Just a quick note to say we had an hour with Ron at Jolly Pumpkin late in the afternoon yesterday which was one of the most interesting hours I have spent in my life with beer. Plenty of photos of wooden casks will follow but on that whole beer pricing thing - picking up a case of 12 750 ml bottles of one of the finest range of beers in North America for seven or eight bucks a bottle is, frankly, insane. Fantastic value. I may have his handwritten receipt framed for the rec room.
Off this morning for a good hearty beer shopping experience and then to explain myself at the border...again.
