It's no secret that I love a good, frosty beer from time to time.  On a hot day, nothing quite compares.  I often think of the genius of modern brewers while I sip on an almost frozen ale, and wonder at the knowledge and expertise these witches and wizards of the suds possess.  How amazing is it when some not only make the delicious beer, but sue it to make a real difference in society?  Totally amazing is the answer.
