Wow, it's been months since I've written here. Strange, since my undergraduate degree is in Literature -- you would think I would be more inspired. Anyway, here comes another missive of questionable


I am asked, often, why small brewers don't install air conditioning in their breweries. Two reasons: 1) It's dang expensive, and I'd rather spend my monies on quality raw materials. And 2) I reply with a question -- "Do you realize how big my beer-gut would be if I didn't sweat so much?"

All in good time my peoples. For now, we sweat together we imbibe together we have good times.

Today in the brewery I'm kegging a sweat-beating Kolsch-Styled Ale that is both super-super refreshing and flavorful. Imagine that -- you can brew a beer that fills the demands of both our blazing Florida heat and our refined palate. This beer was inspired by my German Butcher friend who bribed me with a 5-pound slab of double-smoked bacon. That's all it takes, Folks, for me to dig deep and crank out some love with Weyermann Malts and Bavarian Spalt hops.
