    Once upon a time, there was a man named Mark and a woman named Barb. They shared a fondness for sampling all sorts of craft beers. Soon they discovered that they had a common interest in brewing their own beer.

    So Mark and his fiancée Barb decided to home brew a batch of beer. They gathered lots of information on brewing beer, borrowed all the brewing equipment from a friend and began making their first batch of beer, an amber ale. They cooked the grains, simmered the malt and hops, cooled the sealed pot outside in a snow bank, transferred the brew into a bucket, added the yeast, sealed the lid and let the brew ferment in Barb's basement.

    Two weeks later, they added some sugar to the brew, then filled and capped two cases of beer bottles. Again, the brew was placed in Barb's basement to carbonate. One month later, Mark and Barb opened and sampled their first brew. They poured the beer into a glass and it was a beautiful golden brown color with a very pleasant aroma. Most importantly, it tasted delicious! So they sought the opinion of other beer lovers. For instance....

    The next day ''Captain'' Mark (his real job as a business jet pilot) had to fly to New York. He brought along a couple bottles of home brew amber ale. While airborne, Mark and co-captain Kevin radioed ahead, ordering dinner to be delivered to the airport from their favorite NY pizza restaurant. After landing and securing the airplane, Mark and Kevin ate pizza and drank the beer. Kevin's opinion of the beer? ''very, very good and it goes great with pizza!''
