So, if I can distill this post to its essence: you live in Michigan but yet don't exclusively drink Bell's products.
I don't understand.

Mrs. Peperium

Ohhhh....you are aware of Bell's? Bell's is a very fine product. I do enjoy the ocasional Bell's. Though in the interest of full disclosure, this is my favorite Michigan brewery:

Angler's and Nut Brown do it for me very nicely. Look for them. They do not disappoint if you are of the mindset that an ale is a meal....

Mrs. Peperium

Mr. P really enjoys their IPA as his preference in beer does trend towards his Hohenzollern /Nazi heritage...

TWM

I will look for the Arcadia products around here. And I'm with Mr. P on this one, I like a good IPA. (When Bell's Best Brown can't be had.)

James G. Poulos

Egad! I hope this is as true as it sounds. For a minute there I felt forced to turn to Jack & Vernor's. Though if drinking Tsingtao helped keep the mainland Chinese population under control, it could be the official beverage of Planned Parenthood as well as the Yellow Peril League. Leave it to Robert Massive to set the story straight.

Mrs. Peperium

Official beverage of Planned Parenthood....hahahaha

Andrew Cusack

Surely the Japs used Zeros and not Messerschmitts?

Mrs. Peperium

Thank you Andrew. I put in the wrong link. The right link undescores the point so much better, don't you think?

Strange as it may seem, my wine merchant here in Lexington carries a wide range of Bell's products, to include the stouts and porters as well as Third Coast Ale. I first became acquainted with Bell's when visiting Mrs. Tory's hometurf in Michigan.

Fr. M.

Small world. I had some nuns here for dinner on Sunday and as one of them is from Michigan I got Bell's (Kalamazoo Ale) to serve them...

Mrs. Peperium

Were they German nuns?

Christine

Were they Carmelites?

James G. Poulos

Ah! Lexington. It'll be Charlottesville this weekend. Rumored special guest appearances theresabouts.

Fr. M.

Franciscans (who have a community in Lowell, MI)

Fr. M.

Most of them are German with a healthy dose of just about everything else...

Mrs. P: Your reference to Saki's "When William Came" reminded me to recommend "Riddle of the Sands" for Mr. Peperium's summer-in-Main reading (if, of course, he has not read it already). Much the same spirit as Saki's work, although without the same elegance of language.

Old Dominion Tory

Oops, sorry. That's "Maine," not "Main."

Mrs. Peperium

I don't know if we are going to Maine this year. Rumour has it our island is going to be the setting for a new chick drama, "Aunts Gone Wild". Mr. P thinks it would be more enjoyable when we head East to turn right at NYC instead of the usual left...

Old Dominion Tory

If that is the case, Mrs. Peperium, then I suggest you and Mr. P consider spending some time one of two lovely spots--Cape Cod and Bath County, Virginia (just west of the Tories home county of Rockbridge).

Mrs. Peperium

Cape Cod, Lake Champlain due to Mr. P's recent reading and my long held desire of visiting the area and Maryland / Virginia are currently being comtemplated...

Old Dominion Tory

Ah, Lake Champlain. Excellent choice. I'm sure the Peperiums would greatly enjoy Fort Ticonderoga, site of Montcalm's victory (and a few other actions)and, perhaps, a sidetrip to Saratoga. You could make the trip even more historically interesting by driving across Canada to Montreal and then dropping south along Burgoyne/Carleton/Brock's invasion route.

Misspent

Fort Ticonderoga! If my memory is right that battle was won on my birthday. When learning this in grade school I thought it was fantastic. Not only did my birthday correspond to a great victory but it also was as victory that involved pencils!

Old Dominion Tory

From my ancestral outlook, Misspent, the *greatest* victory that happened at Fort Ticonderoga happened in 1758 when the French under Montcalm repelled the British.
