Punch-Drunk Love

How much do we enjoy a mug, stein, or glass of the golden wonder fluid that is beer? What if we told you that we have a wing of our house dedicated to the memory of Spuds MacKenzie? That our DVD racks include every season of Scrubs simply because we like John C. McGinley, a.k.a. Dr. Cox, as "The Commish" of the More Taste League? Did we mention that we have figured out how to pop non-twistable caps with our knees just in case our arms have to be amputated?

Oh, yeah, it's a deep-seated obsession.

This is why you'll find us passed out and surrounded by a few hundred tiny glasses at the Arizona Craft Brewer's Guild Strong Beer Festival, which features handcrafted brews from all over the Southwest and Belgium.

Mmmmmm. Belgian beer.

Get your drink on at Mesa Amphitheatre. The musical headliner is 2 Tone Lizard Kings.
