And with that, I’ve moved MNBeer World Headquarters (a.k.a. a Macbook Pro and a small collection of boxes) into the great plains.

It was one of the toughest decisions we’ve ever made, but we’re here… to drink beer.. and kill war and live life so well that death will tremble to take us… (apologies to Bukowski.)

So this Saturday I’ll get my first real taste of the of a Fargo/Moorhead Beer festival in the shape of the Rare Beer Picnic. I’m looking forward to it… I actually think I need it, at this point, and this is coming from someone who’s been at a festival or two or three hundred…
