    Good point. Beer. I've been enjoying the Rapscalliion Belgian and the Racer 5 ale, in fairly largely quantities.

    That's a major bummer. Outside Lambs was by far the best bang for your buck in the food stakes, so to speak.

    I didn't notice any other changes; they kept the relocated beer lands which is great.
