Read a good book? Any topic is a good one. If it is about moonshine of other spirits, beer, or wine then that is a bonus.

Waljaco, the resident historian over on Yahoo Distillers, posted this, and I think it's absolutely wonderful! Basically it just says that artisan distillers can do their own thing with single-malts, or go the traditional route with great success.

They also featured Steve McCarthy of Clear Creek in Portland (OR). I admire the guy, and I've tasted his single-malt, which is very nice. If you're ever going to be in Portland on a Saturday, phonme ahead to get on the Saturday distillery tour. It's a good tour and the tasting is outstanding!
