How's that for a combo? The folks at Fullsteam Brewing (which I can't spell properly because I don't know how to make a backward "F") are smart, lively, and entertaining. As evidenced by this post about persimmon beer. (And no, not just sayin' that 'cause it mentions me.)
This particular post was written by Sean (as in Sean Lilly Wilson); his partner-in-beer is Chris Davis. You can follow them on Twitter as @fullsteam. Check 'em out.
