That’s an awesome pic. I take it that it’s from the BBQ site?

just brew it!

I’m taking the day off tomorrow.

I just finished kegging 2 batches of beer (a mango lassi IPA brewed by my wife, and a smoked cherry brown ale brewed by me). This is for a homebrew-only beer festival on Saturday – a dozen-ish local homebrew clubs all bring their latest creations, and everyone gets to try what everyone else has been brewing.

Had a great time at this event last year, and it looks like this year will be even bigger. TBH I enjoy events like this more than commercial beer festivals. Homebrewers make some crazy (and crazy good) stuff.

I’m taking a couple days off next week. So naturally, I am working like mad to catch up so I can spare the days.
