Brewmaster Sightings

Behold the Amber Brachiopod!

It had to happened one day. My colleague and Antarctic explorer David Honig sends this photograph of the infamous post “How to brew beer in a coffee maker, using only materials commonly found on a modestly sized oceanographic research vessel” proudly displayed aboard the oceanographic research vessel RVIB Nathaniel B. Palmer. In recognition of his discovery, Honig has been awarded the Amber Brachiopod – in recognition of explorers who find that post on board oceanographic research vessels of modest size.
