Presenting: The In-Progress Deadspin Style Guide

A Lot Of Extreme Beer Sucks, But This One Is Great

Last weekend I skipped the Beer Advocate Extreme Beer Festival, even though it was five miles from my home and tickets didn't cost any more than what I blow on beer any given day off anyway. I regret not going. It would have been fun, and it would have made me better at my ridiculous how-is-this-an-actual-job? job,… » 3/27/15 11:51am Today 11:51am
