I’ve always know that on average beer drinkers have bigger brains that wine drinkers, but now we have scientific evidence. Read the story right here PS: Don’t start thinking this applies to you. Average means that half of you are below the line.

Far from causing people to get all noisy and violent — extreme beer seems to make a lot of people sleepy. And wear newspaper hats.
That’s me and Tod Mott from Portsmouth Brewing. We are pouring Cate the Great with oak. Yes it is awesome.

Our seven judges have 18 barrels to taste. Then they have to blend and taste again. Wow. That’s a lot of sour beer to drink.
Andrew came all the way from Settle to try the beers. I think he likes them.
The sit down wit the team. From upper right — Tomme, Julian, Sage, Damien and Bo. Adam and Tim will join them shortly.
The glasses they will be using — 18 for each of them
Blending Beer Day! Tomme and Bo tapped 18 of the (Isa)Belle Proximus barrels today for the tasting and blending. The beer is a sour beer made by Sam (Dogfish Head), Robb (Allagash), Adam (Avery), Vinnie (Russian River) and Tomme (Lost Abbey) and then aged for 14 months in barrels (and cultures) sent by each brewer.
It’s raining today, but not enough to stop this intrepid group from dropping by to warm there bones with a few good beers
Just about to get started with the tasting
