The beer is an American IPA and requires about two pints to get the average person to optimum creativity.
Sadly, the beer is not yet available here in the United States (which is actually okay given my current pregnant state!) I will be sure though, as soon as I’m able, to test this out and let you know how it goes, though I probably won’t use it to write anything I”m actually submitting to an editor or professor!
That said, today is back to school day! The spring semester started at midnight and I’ve already logged into all my classes. Lucky for me, all my classes this semester are ENGLISH! Wahoo!
Last night I finished my book proposal to send off to my English professor from last semester, who was willing to look it over before I send it off! I’ll be heading out to campus to drop it off to him later today!
Ciao for now!
