Flying Bison Brewing Co. owner Tim Herzog saw an episode or two of HBO's "Big Little Lies" last season, but he came in late to the series and didn't really know the story.
"Well, I know it now!" he said Monday morning.
He got a quick education in the show Sunday night, when Flying Bison's 716 IPA was featured in the HBO dramatic series.

I've been trying all week to work "get your dupa to Zupapalooza" line into an article. ("Dupa" essentially translates to "backside" from Polish to English. Is the joke less funny now that I've explained it?)
While you're surely stimulated -- or maybe your eyes hurt from rolling them at my humor -- Zupapalooza actually is a real event, a Polish soup extravaganza that's a w…
