Re: Count Down to Frankenmuth

It seems like every year we have more beer than we can possibly drink. Hopefully, with your help, this year we will drink it all. Can we count on your help?

Re: I-7 Openers

I do not know much about the different names of openers. What distinguishes an I-7 opener? This is the only opener I have. I know it is older than most because it is heavy duty and has a larger cutting surface but I have no idea if it is an I-7.

Have you been to Michigan during the summer?

Even though I do not leave for Frankenmuth until tomorrow (Thursday) morning, I took today off just so I could have a break. I value the beauty of Lake Michigan. Despite being only 15 miles from the lake, I only go over there periodically. Today, I went to two of the smaller and lesser known lake sh...

I'm wondering, Leon, if there are even five buyers at 30k for a 1/1+ Tiger OI left? Good question. When people talk about money and cans, inevitably, the age of the people in this hobby comes up.

Re: this is getting ridiculous

I would like to think if you are paying $8.99 for a two pack it is really good beer but who knows? Maybe that brewery's customers can't tell the difference between good and bad beer and simply pay the $8.99 because they assume it must be good.
