Runnin’ in the Rain

The last time I ran was in early June, when the former Head Brewer called me mid-run to let me know he had quit.

WTF Is Going On?

So, yeah, it’s been a while. Long story short, I am now the Head Brewer at Silverton Brewing Co. Long story slightly less short, I’m also the only brewhouse employee for the time being. A 70-hour week means I managed a day off. I’m planning a minor shift in focus in that direction, blog-wise. There [...]

Ah, Spring

Why, what’s your weather like?

Actually, once the fog burns off this will probably be a really good day to ride the train. Indoor car, though.


If you don’t have a subscription, you might want to pick up the May/June issue, which should be hitting newsstands right about now. And maybe let them know which article interested you?

How weird is it that I’m considering framing this?



The roads were finally clear enough for me to get in my first run since October, and holy crap, am I out of shape.

In case anyone was wondering what I’ve been doing in stead of blogging, here’s (part of) the answer. I finally got around to revamping the Silverton Brewing Co. website. It’s now 100% Flash-free, and 100% grammatically correct (probably). Also, I don’t know if you’ve ever poked around in some HTML source that was generated by [...]

I <3 Big Dumps

I was starting to worry that maybe I was about to take a four-day skiing weekend without snow…

Actually, I was going to go out today, but somehow I doubt I’ll be moving my car any time soon.

Man nor Beast

It turns out that even if you leave the faucet running, this weather will get you. The overnight low was -14°F -26°F. I have been corrected by someone who actually had a thermometer outside.

Fine, facebook. Have it your way.

If I don’t get to opt out of the “new profile” anymore, I’m at least going to have some fun with it.

Vintage Vertical

For Xmas, my family (well, mostly just I) did a vertical tasting of the ’08, ’09, and ’10 Vintage Ales from Trader Joe’s. If you aren’t familiar with the VA, it’s a BDSA, contract-brewed by Unibroue, that’s only available for a few weeks around the holidays. As with most things at Trader Joe’s, part of [...]
