Lug Wrench Brewing's One Year Anniversary

With 2010 now just a scene in the rear view mirror, it is a bit surprising to mention that Lug Wrench Brewing has officially been online for a full year now.  While Tom and I had discussed the concept of doing a blog for much longer than a year, it was 1/3/10 when our first post hit the cyber landscape.  Now, here we are on the anniversary and this pet project strangely does not feel like a one-year-old.  Time flies.

Looking back at our short history, I wanted to roll up the numbers we have achieved and look at what some of the most popular topics have been.  As of today, a year after the first words were published ...
