Altho it's seasonal, Sam Adams has a Double Bock which is quite nice. Be
warned - it's more akin to 'sparkling barley wine' than beer, tho.
Extra Stout is a little too... "extra" for my taste, but regular Guinness I
enjoy at times (as well as Boddingtons or Newcastle) and a local pub will
serve a half-n-half (Harps on the bottom, Guinness on the top) which I've
been known to order on occasion. Now if only I could get a German Altbier
like I [over]drank in Germany back in '91... ;^> In the infamous word of
Alton Brown: "Yum."

Unless someone else drops to their knees begging you, I'll volunteer. (I'm
booked thru mid-September, but afterwards, all is good.)
The list runs mailman, right? I'm an ezmlm-guy myself, but mailman
shouldn't be too hard to figure out... Just let me know what needs to be
done (procedures, etc.) around mid-September.
