I stand and look at them sometimes half the day long.

"They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied....not one is demented with the mania of
owning things,
Not one kneels to another nor to his kind that lived thousands of
years ago,
Not one is respectable or industrious over the whole earth." has posted their "Top 50 places to have a beer in the US". They did this last year (and maybe before too) and people were pissed because the rankings are based on the reviews from the website which aren't exactly representative of the entire US. has a lot more users from the northeast than other places so rankings tend to skew towards the northeast. Last year Roger Baylor (and myself, amongst others) were pissed that Rich O's in New Albany Indiana didn't make the list even though it probably would in an "objective" ranking. But this year, it was #19 on the list. Which is awesome. I guess more people reviewed Rich O's since last year. This is cool because that's how it should work. Last year they called the ranking the BEST places to have a beer in the US but changed it to TOP places this year because best kind of implies an objective ranking. I don't think top is really much different. I wish it was top places ON BEERADVOCATE.COM.

Greatest video ever is coming shortly.
