Homebrew for two turns ugly

by Beer nuts!

Two men drinking home brew in Noorvik, Alaska (where the f&*$ is that?!?!) got in an altercation.  Since it was in Alaska, naturally a chainsaw and fire extinguisher were involved.  The police responded to the report of assault at 7:40 in the morning.  That’s about sunset and happy hour in Alaska, right?

Apparently homebrew fights can get crazy in Alaska (unknown image source)

The two men got into a fight after drinking, and one broke the other’s foot.  Not satisfied with just the broken foot, the man with the advantage also hit the injured man with a chainsaw and a fire extinguisher.  The injured man crawled to a neighboring home for help.

The attacker, Ronald Barr, 48, was charged with two counts of first-degree assault and one count each of second, third and fourth-degree assault.  We didn’t know there were that many “assaults”.

Barr was also charged with manufacturing an alcoholic beverage.  Didn’t Jimmy Carter make this legal in the 70s?  Maybe the news hasn’t reached Alaska yet?

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
