Beer pick of the week: Live from Colorado, heeere's Paul's pick(s) :)
Lips Of Faith - Wild² Dubbel - Perfect Belgian Dubbel (rich, malty, some spice) with ... Shisandra berries?
Avery Hog Heaven Barleywine - Perfection from perhaps my favorite craft brewery. I love barleywine beers, which tend to be intense, dark, and very high alcohol.
Audible pick of the week: Mr. Mercedes
"In the frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent, backing up, and charging again. Eight people are killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes. Mr. Mercedes is a war between good and evil, from the master of suspense whose insight into the mind of this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and unforgettable."
