Brian Sullivan Founder and Brewmaster, Steady Hand Beer Co. Sci-Fi Snacking: Georgia Farmhouse Ale and Salty Road Salty Peanut Taffy Honey-like sweetness and from the malt and organic grits lend themselves to the sweet and nutty candy. Spice notes from the yeast add a nice layer for the candy to play off of. Would you rather get blind drunk with Worf or Chewbacca? Chewbacca for sure. Worf might be too serious and introspective. Chewie has a chill vibe, and great sense of humor, surely some awesome smuggling stories. Chewie would need to get a head start though; otherwise I won’t be able to keep up with a Wookie. What would you rather bring to a space fight a light saber or a bat’leth? Light Saber no question. An elegant weapon for a more civilized time. I prefer a more precise option than a blaster. That weapon by your side pretty much tells everyone you aren’t just some scruffy looking nerf herder. Would you rather grab a drink at the Mos Eisley Cantina or Ten Forward? Mos Eisley is my ideal dive bar. When you are in the mood for a dark bar without the pretentiousness. Sure it’s a little rough, best place to enjoy your drink in relative obscurity. Great house band. Plus, after you have too many to operate the speeder, there are several ride share pilots close by. Would you rather drink Blue Milk or unsynthe- sized Romulan ale? Blue Milk. That’s a great style. Small batch, obscure moisture farm Saison. Those guys are light years ahead of the trends. A southern interpretation of a farmhouse ale from Peach State brewing newcomer Steady Hand, done with American grown hops and sweet yellow grits. Would you rather have The Force or Betazoid telepathy? The Force is far superior. Those powers seemingly have no boundary. It’s great being connected to all living things. Plus, think of the practicality, being able to move grain bags with my mind ... Huge help around the brewery. Who would you rather go into battle with, the Ewoks or the Andorians? Ewoks for the win. They are extremely resourceful. Those guys can make weapons out of anything and they have great camouflage. They have honed the art of guerrilla warfare, and they no how to celebrate a victory.
