Beer Quotes & Wisdom

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline-it

helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear

weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -- Frank Zappa

Look at the Size of those Barrels!!

'"Alcohol is a misunderstand vitamin." P.G. Wodehouse, English author

Came across an interesting article the other day about Two Brothers Brewing in Warrenville, IL.

Two Brothers makes several tasty beers, I particularly like their Cane & Ebel, which I picked up cheap at Soupley's 2 weeks ago.

Two Brothers added to their capacity French "foudres." Seven "foudres" to be exact.

"Foudres" are oak fermentation tanks used widely in the Rhône Valley for winemaking, but Two Brothers is going to use them to age special series beers.

See the article for a bit more info and a picture of the tanks.
