Purported Jeffersonville microbrewery likely figment of Tubby's imagination.

The Curmudgeon told you so.

On April 12, the Jeffersonville Evening News reported that Glenn “Tubby” Muncy was at it again, spinning tall tales and duping gullible newspapermen about a microbrewery supposedly set to open at the downtown Jeffersonville building that housed his previous business, Tubby’s Pizza, which burned under mysterious circumstances several years back.

Microbrewery planned for former restaurant site,” by City Editor Larry Thomas.

Thomas guilelessly swallowed Tubby’s absurd claim to be a certified “master brewer,” but as the Curmudgeon quickly pointed out, Tubby’s name is nowhere to be found at the web site of trained master brewers.

Tubby, the sequel: As much a "master brewer" as the Curmudgeon is a neuro-surgeon.”

Six weeks later, Thomas reveals that liens against Tubby’s building are approximately quintuple its value, that these liens are not the result of a mistake (as Tubby insisted in April), and that there has been so little evidence of progress in rehabilitating the building that the city of Jeffersonville is considering eminent domain to seize it.

Properties' progress faulted,” by Larry Thomas.

There are no surprises in any of this, are there?
