In digest 370, florian says:

However, BRW said his information is from a local brewpubmaster.

And in digest 368, Dave Suurballe says:

Since this source is from inside the operation, I tend to put more stock
in it.

So this won't be a total waste, could someone tell me how to request digests
from the archives via UUCP ?
