Lug Wrench Brewing's Second Anniversary

It seems like I was just writting about our first year anniversary when the reminder that our second year milestone was coming up quickly.  I know it is cliche, but where does the time go?!?  I thought it would be fitting to carry on the tradition of rolling up our numbers and seeing what the stats looked like for our little "pet project".  (I promise this will be the last 'round-up' type post for a while.)

So far, the Lug Wrench BRewing experience has been very possitive for both Tom and I as we continue the blog's de facto motto: a fraternal bond over beer.  However, we are very curious to know what the readers think - has any of this been interesting?, entertaining?, motivating?, etc.  Please leave us a comment or shoot me an email with your thoughts.  Feedback is what allows for continued improvment.



"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.  Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine intervention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."
