    Brewing some pruno in the bath tub right now.

    I mean, technically it's a fancy "brew at home" kit I got for Christmas, but I'm brewing apple juice from concentrate with wine yeast, so it'll be pretty prisony.

    Just drank a '09 Abyss last month that I've had around for a few years. Pretty good. Wish I had a '15 to compare with but I'll just drink the beer if it's in front of me.

    There's some worthwhile beer (AND WHISKEY) in central Texas. Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling (they are a grain to bottle distiller and they're good), Jester King, Freetail, and Austin Beerworks come to mind.

    I will be at the Firkin Fest in Portland today. It is a Cask fest at the Green Dragon. Anyone else going? Also are any of you going to the MBAA meeting in Hood River coming up?

    my brother and I are co-owners to the extent that the law allows, and the primary owner helped found our brewery. When they first opened I curated their beer list and Stephen trained, and worked on, serving and beer education. We are giving a talk there on Monday

    https://www.facebook.com/moscowtapp...148938345887/1052788631448583/?type=3&theater

    since we are now making beer I can no longer curate the beer list (thanks outdated liquor laws!) or have say on what they serve, but they are good people and pro good beer and grub.


    My new years resolution for 2017 is going to be working 6 days a week instead of 7. I can hear killerD laughing at me now... "yeah right rookie"!

    Brewed up a ESB for the Tacoma Art Museum last week and am working on a Belgian Golden Strong recipe now. It will be the first beer to go into our new Foeder. Also transferring 2 batches of Flemish Red to barrels.

    KillerD - Your Hef sounds tasty and that ride looks right up my alley. Also congratulations on the great write up in the Northwest Brewing News. Sounds like you have come up with a unique and effective process.

    Brew today is our Puget Sound Porter.

    That just happened to me about a month ago with a write up. I had no idea..

    I leave tonight towards The Legendary Boonville Beer Fest. I have lots of great stops planned and will try to stop and try some of your brews.
