The beer-covered path has meandered all over the world — with the high school history teacher husband and scientific book editor traveling to breweries here, there and everywhere to try their wares, reports the Washington City Paper.
And this particular twosome knows beer — they’ve worked together in the past to brew beers that were popular in the mid-1990s, and are known as “forerunners” in the aggressively hopped American pale ales field.
For their 25,000th, the couple logged a 7.9& alcohol rye pale ale, “packed with American hops, including their favorite varietal, Mount Hood.” And they brewed it themselves, of course.
The couple that brews and drinks together, stays together, as my Great Uncle Aloysius Guinness used to say. Or he would’ve, if I hadn’t imagined the whole thing (so they tell me).
*Thanks for the tip, Michael!
