Hey it's a week past 4th of July and most of us have been broiling for weeks. It also looks like finally, by late summer, us Illinois folk will be able to buy Oskar Blues here in our home state. Binny's put this out yesterday and is having a launch party the week of August 20 at the South Loop store.

And my latest beer quaffs have been the readily accessible SN Torpedo and GL Dortmunder Gold.
