Today might be the toughest day for me to choose between Seattle Beer Week events…this is the one day where I’m going to post a list of everything going on. What to do? I need to make a clone of myself….and when the clone drinks a beer, I can still taste it (but not be effected by the alcohol). That way, I could be enjoying beers at 2 different events at once. But, what if the clone took a drink at the exact same time I was drinking myself? It could be kind of disgusting to mix an Imperial IPA with an Imperial Stout. Man, a lot of thought goes into building a clone.
