"Hello, this is GEOFFREY KEEZER the jazz pianist. Last week I was the guest artist in residence at the Monk Institute at USC. As a parting gift, the director of the program gave me a bottle of Brother Thelonious to take home. I love beer, especially high end beers, and I must say that BT is simply one of the best beers I have ever tasted. And I travel the world on tour all the time. I would be more than happy to endorse BT in any ad campaign you do...your beer totally ROCKS, er, SWINGS.! :)"
–All best, Geoffrey (www.geoffreykeezer.com)
