Potent little husks, that look like flowers and smell like beer, and grow up to be much greater than the sum of their parts.
"I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast, for I intend to go in harm's way." - Captain John Paul Jones (from an incredibly well-designed poster that hangs behind the bar)
