    Stagg at the Stagg: A Tale of Two Staggs

    The story begins like many others, 28 long years ago a child was born. That child, born to parents who own a cabin deep in the woods of California. Near that cabin, lies a rare and majestic part of the world.... A Stagg. This child has enjoyed the wonders of this Stagg for years. He has visited it at different times of the years, in all seasons, seeing it warmed by the sun and cooled by the ice. It wasn't until the year 2013 when this child had a thought. That thought brought on by a special, rare, and tasty Stagg and that thought was completed on April 12th, 2014.

    The Meeting of two Staggs: George T Stagg at Amos A Stagg (tree). One is the fifth biggest in the world, while one is of five special bottles.

    Nice images, Jonathan. It's obvious which Stagg is bigger but which is bolder?
