Once on a flight from California to Chicago, the traveler sitting next to me and I began speaking about beer.He was knowledgeable.When we introduced ourselves he was Peter of Pete’s Wicked Ale.He was on the way to the Falstaff Brewery to inspect the facility.Then, Pete sold a six- pack of his beer every eleven seconds – nationwide, around the clock!
