Ayinger Something

Tried a new brew tonight, a German style lager from Ayinger. I can't remember the exact title, but man it was a damn fine lager. I usually don't love lighter beers, stouts and IPA's are my favorites, but this had lemon, orange, and a bit of yeast. Way too expensive for what it was, but still tasty!

On econ, has anybody read King Leopold's Ghost? It is by a historian, Adam Hochschild, about the de facto slave trade in the Congo under Belgian rule during the late 1800's. Excellent book, but like many historians, starts talking Marxist theory and comes to a faulty conclusion about free trade that needn't be the case given his evidence. Still a good read, however, if you can turn econ brain off for a while. Good example of political intrigue as well. Definitely better than the lager!
