a cask of Dorothy Goodbody's Wholesome Stout from Wye Valley Brewery in Stoke Lacy, Hereford, England. Dorothy Goodbody's is a 4.6% stout. Here is what the brewery website has to say about this stout:

Wholesome Stout, which was voted Supreme Champion at the CAMRA Winter Beer Festival 2002 and was awarded Bronze Medal in the 2005 CAMRA West Midlands Stout Category, is produced using only the finest ingredients available. They include Pale malt with roasted barley which produces a rich dark colour. Flaked barley is used to create a full and creamy head. The Stout is flavoured with Northdown hops which give a dry resinous taste. Awarded 5 stars by top beer writer Roger Protz on his website www.beer-pages.com. Only the second beer to gain his full 5 star rating. Ingredients - Water, Malt, Maris Otter, Flaked Barley, Roast Barley, Crystal, Chocolate, Hops: Northdown, Yeast

and also, Metropolitan is hosting the Federal Hill Chili Cookoff on Sunday, March 1 beginning at 5:30 PM. A $5 cover charge goes to a women's shelter; Bruce is promising beer specials for washing down the chili.....
