Link of the Moment: Beer Review

A few years ago, I found a San Diego-based microbrew called Old Viscosity Ale.  Inspired by the post, fellow blogger John Spevacek tracked down some of the product and rigorously tested its tagline "Not your dad's 30 weight."  He published the results in the most recent Rheology Bulletin on page 7.  [Disclosure: I'm acknowledged in the paper.]  Congratulations to John on his humorous work, and thanks to Editor Faith Morrison for including the work in the Bulletin.
One side benefit of John's sampling work is that he supplied a bottle for my own consumption.  I am no longer an unpaid blogger.  I have been compensated in beer.

Audio of the Moment: A New Pitch

Many people, including John, have reported that the Australian pitch experiment is about to drip for the 9th time.  I enjoyed this presentation from Radiolab.  It will take 9 minutes of your time.
