                    A variation on the spaniel farms beer mile for this Summer?

                      Big grin  I am going to spend a few days in Asheville after the race. I thought I could burn off all the calories because I will be running and hiking a ton while I'm there. But then I remembered that Asheville has a bunch of microbreweries.  Oh well.

                          Mind going shopping for me?

                          Are you even remotely close to drinking the beer you have on hand?  I get the feeling you could live for the next seven years on your beer stock, and still not repeat a beer.
