Full Sail Bock

The beer pours with a dark brown coloration and little to nothing in the way of head. The beer’s nose has hints of grain and a slight hint of sweetness.

Leonard Nimoy Passes Away

Let us remember Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy has passed on Friday morning (Friday, February 27th). He was 83 years old. Known for an acting and (sometimes) musical career, Nimoy will be missed. He had previously been admitted into the hospital due to a variety of lung issues brought on by his COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

Perhaps best known for his role as Spock in Star Trek, Nimoy had been active in Hollywood for well over 60 years. During his turns in Mission: Impossible, Combat!, The Virginian, and Wagon Train, Nimoy was able to cultivate a realistic and larger than life persona in any role that he assumed.

Nimoy was active on television and film up until his death. He had a brief cameo in the second film in the Star Trek reboot, Into Darkness. Fringe fans will remember him as William Bell, while he lent his voice to a memorable episode of The Big Bang Theory.

Even though he composed for the piano with the greatest respect for the original forms – sevillanas, malagueñas, bulerias – his style is influenced by the specific colors of the guitar.
