Phil Plait tweets cool astronomy facts with the hash tag #BAFacts on Twitter. Most of them link to detailed articles he has written on the subject. Last week he compiled all of his BAFacts for the year in a single post. Even if you have been reading the Bad Astronomy blog since it started in 1382, there is some amazing stuff in there for you to get lost in! I’ve been stuck in it for three days.
In 2010, it was the nation's 17th largest craft brewer, according to the Brewers Association, an industry trade group. If it produced 1.2 million cases — its full capacity after the expansion — Lagunitas would have been the second-largest craft brewer in the United States last year, behind only The Boston Beer Co., which makes Samuel Adams.
I knew Lagunitas was having trouble meeting increased demand, but I had no idea how big they were getting. Good for them, and good for the United States.
I’ve been rocking this bad boy for three years. It’s pretty well seasoned now. You’ll hear lots of Stanley Brothers, Vern Williams, Flatt & Skruggs and Bill Monroe. I tend to favor older recordings over modern ones. I recommend listening to it on your tiny smart phone speaker.
