The Tactical Sammich has a two-year shelf life

The Grow Your Own Beer Garden kit

To paraphrase George Michael, “Beer is natural, beer is good, not everybody drinks it, but everybody should.” OK, maybe not everybody should drink it, but almost every adult does. Some of them even go so far as to buy their own beer-brewing kits, both to save money, and to “bond” with the beverage just that much more. If someone really wanted to bond with their beer, what would their next step be, to get a kit where they grow their own grains?! Why, yes. It would be exactly that.  Read More
