I have to say, one of the best things about having a platform like The Big Lead is the fact that I actually get e-mails from people that have real insider information. That's why I have the following happy information to share about the Saranac Brewery fire:
"...none of the beer was destroyed in the fire. They'll have to outsource it to get it bottled until they rebuild the canning facility that was destroyed. So mourn not."
Beautiful, right? Uncle Charlie is alive and well.
In tribute to the happy news, here's the song that goes along with the above photo. I have to get this as my ring tone. I mean - I have to. It would be the highlight of my life.
A big hat tip goes out to Office Naps where I found the picture and the adjoining song.
