FYI: Usually, for your information, from my experience, rather than interest, but I'm just being finicky. I figured out a long time ago that SWMBO was the missus, but I didn't know what the letters stood foor.

ESB also stands for Eastern Suburbs Brewing, located in eastern Sydney.

I learned about the shop ESB before I learned about the style.

Relax, don't worry, have a home brew!
