They are good. Your local Whole Foods should carry them.

I'll be looking. My mustard collection is starting to rival my hot sauce collection. I like variety in both.

Looks like they can be found on Amazon as well. Price is a bit high compared to the grocery store, but they are there if you can't find them.

Can't tell if he has a man bun - I'll assume he does until I see otherwise.   :)
Nah, it looks like curlyish hair, maybe a couple inches long.

That's the problem with the manbun. The hair looks totally normal from one point of view until it...just...looks...wrong.

It doesn't just look wrong. It...is...wrong!  :o

My wife would say that the Mr Beer Kit is the most expensive Christmas gift ever!  That extract Mom, she drank a pint of Saison w me tonight. I can't remember her having more than a swallow. She is snoring in the recliner. 74 and rock'n it.

Hey Jon, I still miss my mullet. High school athlete. The short in the front kept my vision clear, while the party in the back highlighted my rebellious side. Girlfriend says she would cut it instantly, but if I could have long hair again overnight without months of dealing with the growing out phase, I think I'd rock it once again. JK, looking back at pictures, it was as horrible as everyone thinks

Any of you see that Best Buy/Verizon commercial of the family around the table while grandpa carves the turkey with his laser-vision, then when redheaded-manbun-dork turns his head to look the other way --- ZRRRRRP!! The manbun falls into his bowl of soup!

That was by far my favorite commercial in recent memory.

Those little Mr. Beer fermentors are awesome.  Now if we can just figure out a use for the corksicle and the 5.2...paperweights?

Perhaps the corksicle could be used for "bedroom activities"?  ???

My mom gave me one of those last year. It's the thought that counts, I guess.

Haha, me too.  I haven't tried it yet.  Maybe I can adapt it to something useful, like a lodo bottling gun  :)

Ouch. I actually have no idea what motivates people to smoke stout, doughnuts, mango (???), etc. Usually, people vape to quit smoking, there are tobacco-like liquids, way nicer than these abominations. On https://vapingdaily.com/ there's a neat range of tobacco stuff, but no, I want to smoke a raspberry ice-cream.

I like the FAQ for the Hop subscription box in the latest Zymurgy:

Quote
Q: That seems like a lot to pay for hops!

A: Depending on your perspective, and where you live, it might seem like it. While your local homebrew supply company likely has some hops in the $2 range, most of those are from huge co-ops and are the result of mixing the crop from several different farms together to achieve a consistent product for the year. Our hops are sourced directly from the farmer or the local co-op and we’ll tell you not just the region that the hops were grown in, but specifically which farm they came from and where that farm is at.

Still unsure about how the price breaks down? Here’s the monthly per ounce cost at the different subscription levels, including USPS Priority Mail shipping anywhere in the United States:

1-5 Months - $15.00 per month / 4 oz = $3.75 per ounce
6-8 Months - $14.25 per month / 4 oz = $3.56 per ounce
9-12 Months - $13.50 per month / 4 oz = $3.38 per ounce

Do people still pretend that these holiday gift guides are not ads? It seems like it'd be hard to recommend this to anyone, especially with YCH coming out with their own hop box.

Pretty crazy prices for committing to buy several months of various farms' excess production.
