This week we are joined by our friend Mike Jackson who throws down the gauntlet with two of the finest beers in America: Pliny the Elder and Heady Topper. With some known Hops haters in the room this could be an uphill battle for the favorites. When it comes to downhill battles the PineWood Derby is where many of us learn about the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Some events still till this day give awards for the best Sportsman, and that isn't always a good thing. We learn a cautionary tail about chasing the dragon, but it isn't what you are thinking.
