Stout competition?

Three Beer Things I'm Looking Forward to in Spring

    Reposted from my blog, Malted Musings. And no the blog isn't dead, I just finally got a real job. 

    Although this mild winter we've had may make it seem like we are already in the grips of spring, in reality the spring season doesn't officially start until March 20th. What this weather has done (besides make me extremely grateful for a lack of snow) is make me begin to…
