Going to the mall really harshes my mellow, so sometimes I opt to make people gifts for Christmas. 2018's lucky winner was my incredibly effervescent father-in-law, surferman Paul.
Paul has been making the most delicious ginger beer since house prices were affordable, and has been enthusiastically poppin' tops at family meals ever since. Like all good ginger beer, it is highly explosive and requires a rigid set of safety procedures to open each bottle. I have considered donning a wetsuit for protection.
Here's to many more years of spicy swill and soaked sleeves.
