sucky sucky suck suck.

Today at the Day Job was a veritable nightmare. When your customer base numbers in the hundreds of thousands, even a small thing going wrong can be a nightmare. When your entire system goes down on the busiest day of the year – that’s Armageddon. Firey, explosive, putrid Armageddon. But, the upside is, tomorrow is […]

weekend wanderlust july 19th

Last weekend’s trip to Salida was INCREDIBLE! So incredible, in fact, that I cannot do it justice with a little snippet in a post really devoted to the future (STOP LIVING IN THE PAST, MAN!), so I shall write it up another day. But for teasers: Brewer’s Rendezvous! A broken elbow Cliff jumping Pitching a […]

weekend wanderlust july 11

I am writing this while drinking beer at Elevation Brewery in Poncha Springs. Why? Because Brewers Rendezvous, of course! We are in Salida from Friday thru Tuesday. It’s our favorite fest, and we finally got a house on the river! (Thanks jerks who cancelled on us, by the way). Anyway, this is pretty much it […]

weekend wanderlust July 4th

Happy Independence Day, everyone! Have fun, be safe, and try to not burn anything down (especially our forests… please…) Sorry about no weekend review this week. I had a bout of gastroenteritis and was pretty much miserable all weekend, so I didn’t really feel up to writing. But here’s a quick overview: Visit #2 to […]

weekend wanderlust june 27 & last weekend wrap-up

Last week I started a tradition of posting our exploits for that weekend in case there is anyone out there (like me) who can be rather indecisive about what to do with those coveted days off and/or anyone who would like to join us in our shenanigans. I also realized that maaayyybbbeee I should do […]

animated drunk jokes confuse animated drunks

First, watch this: [youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqx5xmNsnvU]   The Bearded Brewer and I just finished watching it. While I have been on the sparkling water (aka sparkly, because I’m 6) all night, the BB is on beer number drunk. The video prompted this conversation: Beardy: (After a long pause and perplexed look on his face). Why was […]

weekend wanderlust june 20th

It’s Friday, I have my Highland hoodie on, and it is time to party! Well, it’s technically 2 1/2 hours from time to party, but it’s so close I can taste it… But first, some business. No matter how hard I try, I seem to be unable to post on a regular basis. Excuses! Excuses […]

guilty pleasures

It’s raining. RAINING. We were just at Mu Brewing and enjoyed our beers with the shriek of the tornado sirens serenading our stay. We have moved on to Coda Brewing and it is still raining. I love this weather. Gloomy, chilly perfection. My heart lives in Seattle, it appears. Days like this remind me of […]

The Bruery is splitting brands

From an email sent out The Bruery Society members earlier today (6/4/2014): The Bruery™ is excited to announce the formation of Bruery Terreux, a new brand that will focus solely on farmhouse-style ales fermented with wild yeasts as well as oak-aged sour ales. The Bruery’s original brand, will rededicate its focus specifically on experimentation with […]

a wee little follow-up.

In my review “a plethora of pilsners“, I reviewed five pilsners produced by Saint Patrick’s Brewing Company in Englewood, Colorado. One of these beers I was not too kind to (I believe the word “harsh” was used) was the German Pilsner. Well, the beauty of Saint Pat’s lagers is that they are lagered in the […]
