What you won't see at the link, however, is an email I received from Sean Dailey last weekend. If this doesn't make you want to go, well, I'm afraid you're either a teetotaler or devoid of a soul or both:
Tonight -- about 20 minutes ago in fact, I began brewing the beer -- and English-style pale ale -- that I'll be bringing to the Chesterton conference this year. This being the 100th anniversary of the publication of The Man Who Was Thursday, and that being the theme of this year's Chesterton conference, I decided to call it Gabri-ale in honor of Gabriel Syme, the hero of Chesterton's great masterpiece. Hope as many of you as possible can make it to the conference. And remember: "Your thumb on the blade, and strike upwards."
