Can You Go, "All The Way"?


Really quick memo today readers. I am getting prepped to do a cask of Rogue Double Mocha Porter in Kennesaw today. This beer is awesome. We have one more going next Saturday (3/27) at our Mall of GA store. If you miss this one tonight, you have to ask yourself, "When is the last time I was in Buford?" I think it is about time, don't you. Even if you are there right now.

Tomorrow is the Brew Your Cask Off event at SweetWater. Needless to say we are very excited about not just our entries, but the whole thing in general. For my entry, lovingly called The Full Retard, we had t-shirts made up to hopefully encourage the judges. Let's hope that everybody is feeling a little retarded by the end of the day. Probably not going to be a problem.....

I will continue working on the Day 2 slide show of my England trip this weekend. It is about half done, so stay tuned for that.
Lastly, if anyone is interested in a tequila & beer tasting on April 8th, let me know. You can call the office at 678-679-1210 and leave a call-back number with Lauren our receptionist. We will be sampling 4 premium and super-premium tequilas along with 4 Mexican beers to wash them down. For $40 you will get half shots and half beers of each, plus Matt is going to have some tasty Mexican-themed snacks for you. Not a full dinner really, but some sustenance to go with the libations. Most importantly, though, will be the educational aspect. Tequila expert Ciska Siertsma (yes, that is spelled correctly; I did not have seizure while typing) will be on hand to tell you all you ever wanted to know about the agave plant and its fermented spirit. It is actually very interesting, and she will have a full presentation. She is very knowledgeable and a great resource for information to wow your friends and co-workers with. Space is limited, and there are only 10 more openings.

That is all for now. Just remember, when you aren't sure how far you want to go, suck it up and Go Full Retard!

PS- The relevance of a hot chick riding a beer bottle to a quote from Tropic Thunder and to a cask of beer that I helped make? Nothing. Let it go. Why does everything have to make sense?
