One day at the former Noctuary I acquired some beer-making ingredients, and endeavored to make My own beer. With a rather Frankensteinian arrangement, I prepared it just as instructed, giving vent to the containers, and I set off to sleep by the morning light. When what did I hear, but a bursting sound - upon investigation, one of the containers blew its top, despite the recommended ventilation, spraying some of the concoction upon the ceiling, which looked like "dripping blood".
Turns out that was the absolute best-tasting beer I ever tried - rich and flavorful, blackened dark brown and much stronger than any beer commonly available. So with increased ventilation, I began brewing it up and sharing it with friends, who did remark that it was 'strong', but that's the way I like it! Amusingly, I actually affixed skull and bones labels I made for it. Perhaps I may make some more some day.
