It's a special hump day edition of Kotaku Off Topic, meaning we'll take some time to talk about things that aren't video game related. Hey, that's just like every other edition of Kotaku Off Topic!

What's on my mind is that lone beer that's currently chilling in my refrigerator. It's a Yards Brewing Company Philadelphia Pale Ale, part of a pack of local beers and microbrews that was shipped to my house in December. See, I got a beer "subscription" for Christmas, one of the more pleasantly perfect gifts I've been given. Another box of beer should be showing up shortly, one with a different batch of bottles. Very exciting.


I suppose if you're looking for a topic of conversation, maybe you should share with the group one of the better gifts you've been given. If not, here are some other developments from the day.
