Strong Beers at Bricks


At last night's Strong Beer Tasting at the Brickskeller in Washington, DC, Johansson's brewer Jay Lampert had the best quip.

Reflecting that the 'weakest' beer to be tasted was 7.5% alcohol by volume (abv), he raised a glass of his Saison (8.5% abv) and toasted the audience:

In case we don't see each other later at police lockup, have a good night!
