Sunday October 20th, 2013 was my 28th birthday. As with most good birthdays, it consisted of getting drunk among other things. But also brewing. And meeting people I haven’t seen in a very, very long time. Among those people was a pseudo old coworker- we never really worked together but since we worked at the same place at different points in time we have a lot of mutual friends. She brought with her an old friend from high school. We were talking, rambling, drunken mumbling. Somehow the topic turned towards my brewing. Not just my brewing but a very specific project I am working on in my tiny 20L home brewery. This project was deemed to be so interesting that I should start a blog about it. In my drunken mind, this seemed like a great idea, so great that I am sitting here stone cold sober trying to make a blog. And so here this is, the first post of my lame beer blog.
So let me outline the content of what I hope will be featured on this blog:
1. Homebrewing- I will discuss my homebrew projects at length.
2. Drinking Beer- I will probably supplement some homebrewing topics with beer that might be interesting especially if it relates to a homebrew project as a sort of footnote.
3. Art and life, etc- Brewing is an art. Life inspires beer. There is a huge chance that there will be some pontificating going on here.
And so begins the epic journey.
