Hopefully this snow isn’t putting a damper on your beer festivities this weekend. You have the Super Bowl this weekend, a fine beer drinking opportunity, as long as you’re able to wake up the next morning. Or you also have Mardi Gras, which seems to be your best bet if you’re looking for tremendous amounts of beer and maybe the occasional breast. I on the other hand will be homebrewing this weekend (Saison) where there will still be a tremendous amount of beer but a much less likely amount of breasts.
