chocolate stout beer anyone?

Micro breweries are a huge deal here in Asheville.  At most restaurants you can find a pretty big assortment of beers made in town by local breweries.  It kind of got Jay thinking he can brew his own beer too.  So, off he went to Asheville Brewers Supply right up the road.  He came home with a complete brew kit and was off and brewing. 

Here he is bottling his 2nd batch of beer.  This one is a chocolate stout.  It sure did smell great, but I just can't get myself to drink beer...

He got 44 bottles out of this batch!  Now he has to wait 2-4 weeks for it to be ready to drink.  Yum.
