It’s good to be back home and getting back into the swing of things. There are several items I wanted to get out. So let’s start with a brew news!
First, this week I received a package from Adroit Theory Brewing. It contained their B/A/Y/S batch 002, 003 & 004. I haven’t sampled them yet but I intend to do so this weekend. If you recall I did a review of their batch 001 last August. You can view that review here.
This leads me to the video reviews. I did enjoy doing those and am looking to do more again. The problem is I don’t really have an area I can do them with out being disturbed. However, I’ll at least get a video review done for these three bottles and we’ll work it from there.
Earlier this week, Redbeard Brewing announced their Kickstarter project to help them raise funds to complete taproom among other projects. They are still looking to be open late winter/early spring. Check it out and see if you can pitch in. Also another piece of good news from them is they got their Brewer’s Notice approved. They will be submitting their state application next.
Dogfish Head Brewing and Sierra Nevada Brewing have collaborated along with Spiegelau to create the “perfect” IPA glass. Personally, looks too much like the Sam Adam Glass that was released about 3 years ago.
Looking to next week Legend Brewing is hosting their 19th Anniversary. As usual this will be a big to do and rightly so. Along with that Local Suds having Legend’ary Brew Tour (personally as a fan of How I Met Your Mother, I would have called it Legend…*Wait For It*…ary Brew Tour). As of right now there are seats available so check the link for details.
So with that let’s get into our updates:
