April Fooling

For April Fools Day, I had fun writing up a fake press release (which I linked to on RateBeer), announcing that Anheuser-Busch bought AleSmith and Southampton, two of the best breweries in the world (#1 & #12 according to this list). My friend CapFlu made the awesome fake logo for AleSmith. Beergeeks are so paranoid about such things, which made for ripe pickings. Of course, despite getting "confirmation" from a brewer of the sale (top post), any lingering doubts soon gave way. If any of you appreciated that, you might also want to check out what that same brewer did yesterday to celebrate the holiday.
