Here's our flyer!!!


(version big: http://philliplamb.com/big_brewers.jpg)

Here's the translation:
The war against bad beer has begun!

The homebrewers of Ile-de-France (paris & suburbs, fyi) are joining together for the first time, to develop a strategy to bring better beer to the refrigerators and basements of our families and compatriots. Never again will we be subjected to the dictatorship of Stella Artois, Leffe and Grimbergen!

Homebrewing is easier than you think. Everyone can make good beer, no matter your age, income or apartment size!

Come! Even if you have only dreamed of making good beer! We will give you the knowledge necessary to join in the fight.

FYI, if you're not familiar with the poster, it's based on De Gaulle's June 18 Appeal: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appeal_of_18_June
They were plastered all over France and England during the war, and you see these every now and then near war memorials or plaques marking where Free French were executed.

Thanks for the translation. I took French in high school, but we're talking 20 years ago...

Oh wait, you said Latin... I thought you said Latvian...

Ah, now I know where the word cloaca comes from.  You know, that one exit chute that things like chickens have for getting rid of #1, #2, and  #3.  Wash those fresh eggs!

That's awesome! I don't go into the clubs section very often, so I almost missed it. Looking forward to the report.
