Hmmm, I don't see Old Milwaukee's Best which, coincidentally, aided us in bringing back the 2006 Kickball Tournament beer trophy this past weekend. Those microbrews listed here ain't got nuthin' on 'The Beast'.

Oh, yeah, enjoy the brisk autumn weekend in Minnesota -- it's the first of the 2006 season though most would say that the weekend as of late have been in autumn mode for at least three weeks.

Don't forget Pabst. The beer of choice amongst the Twin Cities scooterista.

(Excuse me while I duck for cover, now.)

Out here in the burbs it is hell to find Pabst although a co-worker's husband drinks it like it comes straight from the fountain of youth.
