I'm wayyyy down in TX. I've had Bell's "Oberon"! It was one of my favorite commonly-on-tap beers in Tennessee for the couple of times I went there. That's crazy, it must mean that Appalachia doesn't have many intermediately sized breweries. I didn't know Bell Brewing was also from your neck of the woods.

We have sooooo many breweries, of varying sizes, here. To this day, I can still get beer from some of the smaller ones, so that's cool. I know that at one point, we had some state-level laws that were very unfavorable to allowing smaller breweries to increase their distribution, but I think those have been lifted. InBev's doing (Anheuser-Busch rebranded), no doubt.

And yeah, if Trump got sick at the Rose Garden event on September 26th, that was (..........) only ten days ago. I can almost 100% assure you, it was Trump who concocted the narrative that he "beat" covid. It's quite possible that his overexertion, masked to his own perception by some damn good 'roids, will weaken his body to the point of perhaps involuntary sedation and intubation later this week.

My heart goes out to every covid victim and their families, friends, coworkers, everybody affected. I wish we had a president capable of expressing empathy. The nation needs to begin a collective healing that is only being prolonged as we sink further into disruption injected by POTUS. Ugh.
