ORDINARILY I'D HOIST A SPRECHER.
The Milwaukee Brewers just swept a weekend series with the Chicago Cubs (OK, this season isn't as fraught as 2007 or 2008). After a miserable start, the Crew swept a home-stand and now have more wins than losses. But there's no Sprecher in the cooler. Time for a road trip? Perhaps. Instead, I'll hoist a Barley Island Dirty Helen brown ale. Antitrust devotees will get the significance.
