Scientists are baffled

So this is one of those things I've been working on for months, and couldn't talk about until today: I've partnered with +Northern Brewer to design and release some #homebrew recipe kits this year (and hopefully beyond, if people like them enough).

Some of the marketing language here is a little much (I don't think I'm a master brewer, yet), but I love how excited and enthusiastic everyone at Northern Brewer is to work together with me.

Our first kit is the #VandalEyesPA that I designed for my wife, +Anne Wheaton, about a year ago. It's a big IPA with lots of hops aroma, but a big caramel malt backbone to balance it out. Think of it as an IPA that drinks like a double IPA, I guess.

As the year goes on, I'll release more kits. I'm thinking about doing a sage saison, a coffee stout, a nice pale ale, and maybe a #w00tstout clone.

I'll keep blogging about my homebrewing adventures at devilsgatebrewing.com, and when you make these for yourself, you can even check in on +Untappd because I've been entering Devil's Gate brews there since I started almost three years ago.

The movie will be set 70 years before the events of Harry Potter, and will follow the adventures of Newt Scamander

I may be jealous of this guy.
A Texas man walked into the emergency room, complaining of dizziness after a meal. A Breathalyzer test indicated that he was definitely drunk. But there was one hitch: He hadn't touched alcohol all day.
