37834RE: [Distillers] youtube video
- Nov 30, 2006Rob,
While I understand some of the quaint colloquialisms of the empire, Bob IS
(or technically, was) my uncle, and I was named for him. He, in turn, was
named for his great-great-grandfather Bob, a figure of some note in our
American Whiskey Rebellion, having his corporeal ass incarcerated by no less
than George Washington, for his defense of untaxed distillation in our new
federation of states.
It was in all the papers.
Long story short, you can see that I came by this particular form of
rebellion honestly. Makes a man proud, it does.
Zymurgy Bob, a simple potstiller
