Re: Minnesota Twins 2014-2020: Here's Your Damn Thread

Twins scored one in the 9th but lose 2-1 Santiago made one mistake and it cost them since the bats didn't show up today Buxton 0-3 with three more strikeouts. Is it time to panic yet? No. There are dozens of hitters way more accomplished than Buxton who are off to horrible starts this year. Half of...

For those of us who don't follow Surly very close, is the 'Smoke' similar to a Rauchbier but with Surly-like quantities of hops? Honestly, I though it tasted like a decent porter with a chaser of liquid smoke. I don't think I'd drink it again, but I'm not really a rauchbier expert. I don't think Su...
