It's never all bad news. Beau's Rwandan craft brewery Kickstarter project was an overwhelming success: http://beaus.ca/rwanda/
It was my second participation in a Kickstarter project, coming after Palate Deck, which I still think ought to have worked.
Not that I will ever be in the area of Rwanda to give their beer a try. I am reminded of one of those books detailing the 1000 experiences one "must" have before their demise which lists the Nigerian Foreign Export version of Guinness as one of the beers I must try lest my life be incomplete. Last I checked, I am approaching two hundred of their one thousand so I guess I have only lived twenty percent of a life to date.
