Britain Gets Brutal

Massive throngs of excited Britons greeted The Beard as he arrived in London for the start of his eight day visit to bring the Revolution to the United Kingdom.

Despite the warm welcome, it was all business for The Beard as he departed Heathrow and immediately set off for Adnams Brewery in Suffolk where he and Head Brewer Fergus Fitzgerald brewed a batch of Rogue Ales Brutal IPA, the official beer of the Rogue Nation.

Knowing there would be strong demand for this collaborative brew, purveyor of craft beer and award winning loos, JD Wetherspoon announced it will offer Rogue Brutal IPA to the people of Britain at all 930 of its pubs.

The Beard’s tour of London continues this week as he convenes with distributors, retailers and journalists who are eager to shake his hand.

Meanwhile, The Beard anticipates the arrival of his luggage which remains stranded at Portland International Airport.

  1. Hint: send luggage ahead via UPS or FedEx or even USPS. It’s worth the payment. For what it takes to fly these days I flew to Australia with what was essentially a large gym bag with only the absolute necessities – something easily stowed above the head or under the seat. No regrets, and it was with me throughout those 26-30 hours to and from Boston.
