I just "discovered" sprouts this year. My mom never made them growing up. I'm sure I wouldn;t have like them growing up, but they are one of my new favorite foods. A touch of butter (or olive oil) and a little salt and pepper. Yum! Not bitter at all. And that Ale was smooth as a babies bottom. I'm not sure it was worth what I paid for it, but it was definitely a step above. I'm not a big beer drinker, but I like to treat myself to a really good one once in awhile.
