Note to readers
GWAR Beer is now the name of the collaboration between Cigar City Brewing and the band GWAR. They changed the name because there was already a beer called Impaled Ale. The Weekend section, which is printed in advance, contains the old name. The article also has the wrong state for Three Floyds Brewing. It is in Indiana.
Also, the opening date of the movie I'm So Excited was changed to Aug. 9 after press time. A review runs in today's Weekend.
