    From Luke:
    If people enjoy playing this game, I think it would be fun to make it a new weekly challenge. It will likely be a lot of macros and abstracts, but should be fun. Each member can have one guess. The answer will be revealed on the following Tuesday. The first correct guess has the honor of submitting the image for the next challenge. Sometimes there will be more than one thing in the photo or more than one way to accurately describe what the photo represents. The original poster will be the final judge of who is "most correct".

    My submission for Round 2:

    Have at it.

    Blue and green reflections...sky and trees?

    My guess is it's some kind of park/garden fountain.

    I'm not sure if there is a swirling motion going in there or not.

    Knowing your love of beer, I'll go with reflections of sky and trees in a pitcher of dark lager (though those bubbles looks more coffee-like than beer-like)

    Ok, I'm calling it. And the winner is.....


    LUKE.

    He came closest. It is in fact beer (and a stout at that), but not a glass of it. It's 6 gallons of it, being poured off from the mash tun into the boil kettle on my old back porch. The full shot (which suddenly I cannot find) is from the old Canon SD1400 or whatever it was, the absolutely tiny little compact metal camera. Your only good clue was the stream of beer pouring in, seen in reflection.

    So pick another shot, Luke, and post up.

    oh man, I cam sooooo close to calling a stout (though I also considered a porter).

    Yay! I win.

    Aaah.. coffee, beer is not so different.

    A few months ago I drank this one:

    beer_237563.

    Beer containing the Kopi Luwak coffee beans (coffee beans once they have been eaten and defecated by the an Asian civet)

    Ha ha, civet coffee. Awesome. I'm had the one that Mikkeller makes, called Breakfast Weasel, I believe? It was really good, as long as you didn't picture certain portions of the manufacturing process.

    Yeah .. and take small sips because it's strong (alcohol and taste).
