But let's get down to business here. I gotta get back to work. For those of you that don't know, I actually have a job that needs to get done, besides drinking beer and traveling and writing a blog every now and then. Phone calls, spreadsheets, meetings, e-mails...the same stuff most of you have to do on a daily basis. But nobody wants to hear about that stuff, and I am sure that you are no different. You want to hear about beer. Cold, delicious beer. Here you go:
- Tomorrow is the Two-For-Tuesday beer event. The upstairs bar at The Prado has a Green Flash release with five different beers on tap from one of San Diego's most renown breweries. Double Stout, Hop Head Red, Imperial IPA, Le Freak and West Coast IPA. We only have a tiny amount of the IIPA, but the rest we will have a good amount of on hand. A couple important guys from the brewery will be there as well. The Fred Bar will be hosting the guys from Heavy Seas, along with a cask of their 2012 Letter of Marque. There will be some other drafts and a few bottles too. Most importantly though, is that Joe Gold from the brewery will be there. This guy is awesome. Make sure you introduce yourself, tell him that you love Heavy Seas, and then enjoy the conversation from there. Joe is a pleasure to talk to, and extremely knowledgeable about his business. This is one of the best guys in a business full of great people. Both events start at 6:00 pm
- Then on Wednesday you can meet me at the East Roswell location when we tap as cask of Boulder Mojo IPA at 6:00 pm. This is a rare cask, and the first one that I have ever seen in GA from Boulder Brewing Co.
- On Friday I will be in Chattanooga for a cask of Left Hand 400 lb. Monkey. I always look forward to seeing our loyal customers up in Chattanooga, and this time I am getting a room so that I can relax and drink some beers with them.
- Next week on Tuesday the 26th we are launching the new Jailhouse Prison Camp Pilsner at the Metropolis store in midtown. The brewery crew will be in house to help kick it off right, and I will be there too. Glenn and the folks from Jailhouse are a cool bunch, so be sure to introduce yourselves to them if you can make it. We'll tap the keg at 6:00 pm.
