Joined Kenny and crew for a double brew day yesterday. First brew was another batch of our collaboration, A Pleasant Country, which you can see here in the sight glass. Look for this batch in March. Always a delight to work and spend the day with everyone at @brookevillebeer.
Today I helped can some beer for @TrueRespite. My contribution was pretty simple, filling cases off the end of the line. All the same I am super grateful for the experience and the opportunity to learn.
Winding down the first official day of my sabbatical with a bit of my own lager. A good day, on reflection, with some plans made for the remainder of this first week.
Local beer and brewing friends, next week I start a month long sabbatical I’ve earned for five years at my day job. I have already started to reach out about volunteering to add to my education and meager commercial experience thus far. If anyone else would welcome some trained and unpaid labor, let me know. Also open simply to meeting up over beers at places I don’t normally have time to get to.
Stepped out for lunch to get some reading in.
Spotted on my morning commute on Georgia Ave. So tempted to follow them instead of continuing on to work. Made me smile, regardless. @brookevillebeer
I still struggle with hazy IPAs. Having heard Scott talk about his book on a couple of interviews, I am optimistic this well help me better understand what I am tasting, especially what I like.
Broke done a half pound of @hopsdirect Cashmere last night and vacuum packed an ounce at a time. Will repackage more, Legacy, tonight. Helps ensure bulk hops stay fresher, longer.
A tasty treat just because.
Made a quick trip for a few needful supplies this weekend. Brewing twice in the next three weeks.
