Any #Savor when I can make @MadFermentationist laugh, bonus. Can’t wait to have him and @ScottJanish on the podcast to talk about @SapwoodCellars. #savorcraftbewr

Peak #Savor moment. Waiting to shake Sam Calagione’s hand as I have done for the past three years, I got to have an actual conversation with him. He invited me to email him personally about my podcast. #savorcraftbeer

I met @CharliePapazian again, here at #Savor, just now. Honestly, though, sharing my love of @gilbertogil and his free culture work with Charlie’s wife, that…that made my night.

After taking Andrea out for her birthday lunch at Crossroads, I drove us by @TrueRespite and @saintsrowbeer. Not being a beer drinker, she hasn’t been. Tony’s latest sour beer may yet convince her, she is opening to visiting again to try more of his sour beers. Driving home, she confides that she would be on board if I wanted to open a nano-brewery, never having seen one before today. She has always been supportive when I’ve considered opening a brewery or otherwise joining the industry. She simply had never realized a commercial brewery could be so similar to my home brewery. Not saying I am going to rush right out and start planning a nano brewery. Only that it is nice for her to see that there are many ways to get started, some not so different from what I already do.

The question I dread as a podcaster covering local breweries: which one is your favorite? Can’t. Decide. Augh. Brain meltdown.
