Evil Glenn vs. The Brewery
Harvey dialed the phone and waited for the ring.
First, one ring. Then another.
"Darn it," he thought. "No one's home anywhere today."
After the 4th ring, the message came on.
"This is Basil. We're not available at the moment. Leave a name and number, and we'll call you back. Or not. Depends on the mood."
Harvey drew a breath. He'd left this message all morning. Oh, well. Once more wouldn't matter.

We visited a microbrewery and talked with Master Brewer Al Kruzen and his apprentice brewer Joey Barbarito
It raised an eyebrow with me. I know darn well that Glenn's beverage of choice doesn't require brewing, so he had no reason to visit Knoxville's Downtown Grill and Brewery.

Your Assignment this week is to answer the question:
What was the real reason that Evil Glenn went to visit the Brewerey?
Call me back."
Harvey hung up the phone.
It was two days later when he opened his email and had his answer:
Sorry for the delay in responding. I just missed your message Saturday. The wife and I headed up to Knoxville and scoped it out. You won't believe this. But Evil Glenn is going into a partnership with that brewery. He's making his own beer now:
