So there is a three day beer festival in Silverton, OR this weekend. Lots of Oregon-based microbreweries will be there but the heavy hitters will be names like Fort George (Astoria), Alameda (Portland), Gilgamesh (Salem), Ninkasi (Eugene), Seven Brides (Silverton), Pale Horse (Salem), and Pelican (Pacific City). If any other Oregonians are out there, come on out. I’d be sad to miss it.

Damn, it’s good to be back. Good brew, good times.

In light of the fall season coming into Mississippi, I figured it about time to resume a once rewarding form of therapy, Blogging with Sam Adams. We’ve gotten along wonderfully in the past and I suppose today whilst starring at him he finally had the courage to admit he missed me too. To the ole chap I said "Come along old man, we’ve got catching up to do." So here we are, welcoming the fall season with a bit of imperialism, well, not really, because the Imperial Stout isn’t an atrocity—it’s definitely a gift. Sam and I take this beer business seriously, as you can see from the look on my face. So cheers mates, have one with me. You just better enjoy it.

My gosh I’m having so many good conversations tonight I think I’m as giddy as, well, I dunno, as me in a beer store.

Catching up on some news and reading tonight, but with my trusty companion Abita Andygator—also known as 22ounces of doppelbock heaven. Oh, followers, those who want to know more about me, I am a bit of a beer guy. Here is a post I made some time ago of some excellent beers I’ve had throughout my travels. Links to each beer are embedded.

Drinking an 8.2% home-brewed Porter a friend sent me from the Gulf Coast.



Not too bad. The mouth-feel isn’t quite where it should be and I’d like a stronger coffee aroma. I think I’ll start brewing this summer. Should be fun. Beer and politics, perfect. 

Edit: This porter is much better at room temp. I’m talking to myself about beer on my own blog. Whoa.
