Thank you. Thank you.

The story behind the name "Leap Second". We brewed the beer to commemorate the 23rd leap second which happened December 31, 2005 (how's that for "geekness"??). The plan was to age it until the next leap second. Well when they started talking about doing away with leap seconds we figured we'd better keg it after a year and start drinking it.
