This year, Alan's only letting us send five pics. Five! Impossible. I pulled out the bone saw and tore into the patient, but even unimaginable gore could not take me down to five. So here are the three I couldn't exclude but also couldn't exclude. My other entries will appear at some point in the next month over at The Good Beer Blog. I wouldn't call them better, just more likely to appeal to the judge (purely speculatively).
|Mt. Angel Abbey, which is adding a brewery, with hop|
fields in the background.
|Willamette Valley hop fields.|
|Jim Bicklein, the master brewer at Anheuser-Busch's|
St. Louis brewery. Gorgeous facility.
