Re: Crazy Rich Asians

No, the mother was just outright horrible. His expectation that she will follow his lead and accommodate entirely to his needs, answer yes to any proposals and offers and expecting her to be OK with all of this, is creepy. It's standard rom-com stuff, but it's still creepy as fuck, and a terrible w...

Thanks for the recommendations, I'll try out brown ales next time I'm in a brewery.

Out of curiosity, what kinds of foods would you all pair with different kinds of beer?

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII naming contest

Star Wars Episode VIII: Attack Of The Rey Skywalker Stans Seriously, there's this entire weird contingent of fans that is vehemently emotionally invested in the idea that Rey is a Skywalker and they would be legit emotionally devastated if she turned out to be Rey Kenobi or Rey Random. I don't get it.

Don't get me wrong, I like the concept of craft beer, the romance of small independent breweries, but I don't know why it's taken a decade for the modern craft brewing movement to move away from the hop and for beer nerds to stop insisting that bitter = better. I'm beginning to think Sam Smith's Org...
