BYO brewery to have with your pizza

Did you know that the humble honey mushroom is the largest living (single) organism (by area) on earth, covering about 2,300 acres (that’s 1665 football fields!) in the Malheur National Forest, Oregon?  Not only is its size impressive, but its age too. Scientists estimate it to be anything between 2,400 and 8,600 years old.  Makes annual birthday cakes celebration a potential fire hazard!

    Do you suppose that anyone would notice if I shaved off a little piece of the Oregon mushroom for my pizza? Or is it wired to an alarm system? “Put down the knife and and STEP AWAY from the mushroom!”
