Bill Woodcock's blog "53 Beers on Tap" earned high praise, awards, and respect from fellow bloggers, elected officials, community leaders, and the like. It was a community treasure. This book brings you, the reader, the best blog posts of that late, lamented work. It serves as a first-person account of history of Howard County and beyond. The posts cover local, state, national, and international affairs. The blog also includes the author's musings on suburban affairs and items of the early aughts days.
