I used to have have a biweekly meeting with a friend at a bar after classes. I did a lot of networking there so I ended up with an @bar context!

Real work does get done there. We checked on folks renting our guest house, arranged for a dinner party next week, got the latest gossip on the big fire that destroyed the town ambulances, update on construction work at our rented building, and planned for painting our other building.
@beer makes a lot of things work better.

I had no idea it was a preservation method. Thanks for the info Oogie, I love learning stuff.Oogiem;69865 said:The local brewery makes a beer occasionally that is a special based on a Thomas Jefferson recipe that he wrote in a letter to Washington. According to TJ, Washington's beer was too weak and needed some changes and TJ went on to tell him how to improve the recipe. It also quite good.
You do have to realize that there were various classes of beers. Small beer is made from the second mashing of the grains and was what the children and women frequently drank. Beer was generally not nearly as alcoholic as modern beers but instead was really a way to preserve grain and boil water making it safer to drink.
Even now the beer is often safer than the water in many countries.

Actually, most of the presenters have done several hundred GTD classes by now, so we know the material pretty well!
