It’s been a whirlwind spring here at Fingers HQ. We’ve contemplated the role of NFTs in craft beer and broader beverage alcohol; gazed mouths agape at the unbelievably ham-fisted and casually racist Senate campaign of a centrist beer heiress; and interviewed fascinating folks like Kim Kelly, Benjamin Anderson, and Rax King. The boozeletter’s got range, baby, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

That all said: it’s been a very bad week, month, year, decade, etc. to be an American. If you’re anything like me, you’re probably desperate for a breather from all the horrifying shit happening across this godforsaken land, particularly over the past few days. So! As the unofficial start of summer approaches, let’s lighten the load and cruise into the holiday weekend with a low-stakes discussion thread. I’d like to know any/all of the following:

Hold forth in the comments, compadres! Or just post whatever you want, or ask me questions… truly, I’m just looking to turn my brain off and shoot the shit with you. I’ll be in and out of the thread throughout the day, hope to see you there. Thanks as always for reading—Dave.
