Mia's birthday present to me was beer-making equipment. We haven't bought the equipment yet, but we have been speculating on what beers to make. Here are the three best ideas:
1. Caraway-flavored rye wine. It will be like liquid rye bread.
2. Smoked bacon-bock. You know how some bars serve blueberry beers with blueberries floating in them? Imagine a manlier version of that.
3. Old cock ale. This is stolen from the Sam Adams guy. You throw a rooster or two into the beer during the boiling, and you get a beer that's perfect for when you're home sick.
