Chestertoniana for Christmas

I know it's early, but I was shopping at Kohl's yesterday and noticed they had some Christmas decorations up and out already, and that the Halloween stuff was already on sale. I think, correct me if I'm wrong, that Halloween isn't for another month. So why the stuff is on sale now, I don't know. Maybe to make room for the Christmas stuff.

Anyway, it got me thinking that now would be a good time to do some Christmas shopping at the American Chesterton Society, where you can get everything from books to beer to bumper stickers.

Another great gift idea is a Gilbert magazine subscription for either yourself, your Uncle, your neighbor, your library, and if you already give to all those people, you can even donate a subscription to someone who is in prison, longing for the mental freedom that Chesterton offers.

So, take advantage of these early offers. You'll be done shopping before everyone else, and will be able to take advantage of all the early bird shopping deals. They are the same as the late shopping deals, except that you'll have the peace of mind of knowing you are done. ;-)


  1. "...books to beer..."

    The ACS opened a brewery???


    What's on tap?

    Thursday Ale?
    Lepanto Lager?
    G.K.'s Stout? (he sure is, hee hee)

    Or perhaps a "Chesterton AMBER"?

    This is great. Can I order by the keg?

    Maybe I'll have to change my ID to "Doctor Thirsty" (No, this is not my own invention; GKC already made a pun about this.)

  2. I think there are laws about alchohol crossing state boundaries, but come to ChesterCon and we'll see what we can do about the beer.

    The ACS sells vessels for your stout, your amber, lager and ale: which reminds me of a great slogan,

    Ale's what cures ya!

  3. Ale's well that end's well!

    The ACS sells beer mugs but, alas, no beer.

    UPS can ship beer across state lines. I know. I've done it.

    I started homebrewing again last summer (after a seven-year hiatus) and when I get to the proper volume, I'll propose to Dale about selling kegs of Manalive Ales & Stouts through the ACS. :-)
