An R.B.Q exclusive. I'm about to be a dad.


Well not till August anyway. That's right, a baby brewmaster. You see I'm getting on a bit now (28 this year) and those familiar with Star Wars or the SAW series will know that at some point in the story the archetype must pass the torch, so to speak, to new blood. And before you ask yes you can teach kids to brew I saw Zak Avery doing it on Twitter.

But the truth is I'm not entirely sure what to expect and a bit nervous. Ok well more than a bit (shitting myself) but whatever happens I'm sure little Sauron (a lovely name for a boy) will be a lovely addition to the family. Even if it does mean less opportunities to spend nights down the John Bull or the Tanners or even just to kick back with various bottled beers for the night whilst watching various classic movies such as Scum or Commando. But I'm sure when little Sauron (or Kurgan (Centennial if a girl)) gets old enough he or she too can endulge in these great cinematic masterpieces. It could be a tough ride, but surely I must survive.

Anyhow we have decided not to find out the sex of the unborn one so I thought It would be cool for a new poll (since I haven't done a poll in ages). This ones called guess the sex of baby Millichamp and basically has four simple answers because basically the baby can only be ether A; 'a boy' B; 'a girl' C; ' a hermaphrodite' or D; 'one of those chest buster things from the film Alien'

These days you can never tell
(though my money's on a boy)

Place your bets now...

Congratulations!!!
Shitting oneself over this is a healthy state of mind, to be cool calm and collected is most certainly not. Get ready for the best and craziest times of your life and enjoy!

Many congratulations Rob. Ours is nearly nine months and I can certainly sympathise with the shitting oneself - I think we still are! Great fun coming up for you all though.

Shit. They rob you of your sleep when they are little, then rob you of all your cash as they grow. Funny thing is, they're worth every penny. Hope everything goes well.

Thanks everyone. The celebratory brew ideas are pending. Up to now it's between an IPA to be drunk this year or a barley wine/old ale to be kept to mature over the years.
