The assorted liquid components included are sure to be great, but just hanging out listening to Greg Engert talk about beer for a couple hours is worth the price of admission by itself. Move fast: the earliest sessions are already sold out.

Anon - FWIW, you're the second person to complain about a group we've referenced on ideological grounds in 3 years and 800+ posts worth of listings - and that one was railing against our posting a job with a really conservative employer.

So we're pretty much going to continue to reference opportunities across the political spectrum here - it seems to work pretty well for the 16 thousand individuals who visit this site a total of 45k times your average month. GB
