I've got an IPA to bottle and a whole lot of organizing to do.

Phil - Brew Camp is new. Maybe a year or two.I never went to the old B&G downtown, as I heard too many bad things about it. The new store in the West Loop is pretty good, but not convenient.
Brew & Grow has expanded and has more locations, but none of them are particularly convenient for me. Never had a bad experience there.
I think my favorite regionalism here in LA is the freeway notion. Ignoring the plethora of names every freeway has (and will vary based on the your mile marker) or the fact that some freeways that go N/S are marked as E/W and vice versa, my favorite is the reference scheme.That was a hard habit to shake when I moved to Chicago. Of course around here, they mostly use the name and not the number, but you get to use the: The Dan Ryan.
In the rest of the country an interstate is always I-something. Where I grew up, I was used to talking about I-4, I-95, I-75, Highway 50, State Road 441, etc.
Out here in Los Angeles - it's all "the" as in "the 5", "the 101", "the 210", "the 2", etc, etc.
Took a while to get used to, but now I can't imagine saying I-5, Highway 101, etc.
I don't know, I never heard of "sun breaks" as a weather phenomena until I moved to the NW . . .I liked learning that, the myriad of ways Harry Wappler had to describe rain and convergence effects over the Sound.
The weirdest thing I think, is all of the people in the south who use "coke" as a generic word for "soda".
If the pro teams from Japan played teams from the US during the regular season and could compete for the World Series Title, I wouldn't have a problem with it. Instead it's a publicity stunt and seems like a MLB comment on US fans.
/stepping off high horse now/
I'm glad Ichiro had a good game!
aroudn 15000 packs to the US, just 7760 east of the mississippi.That changes everything
I don't think I will be buying one. I hope they make lots of money and whenever I make to belgium I will try it.
The drinker came first when he/she realized this stuff could be consumed. Probably a result of a dare or starvation. Then came the brewer!New Holland Brewing in Michigan used to use "Art in fermented form" as their slogan
Oh come on. I know you guys want to say it's a consumable art form...
