Breweries and Babies






Being an occasional visitor to breweries (!) I have certainly witnessed this phenomenon:

Anniversary #1 at Liability Brewing, Greenville SC

Minor quandary yesterday: CBD oil or craft beer?
Meanwhile, the band played on!
And a brewer from Fullsteam showed up.
All Anniversary parties should be this much fun!

Until next year...

Cheers!

New Groove Artisan Brewery Turns 2

Enjoy celebrating local breweries' birthdays? Of course you do. Lucky for you, there's one tomorrow, so heads up!

Actually, it's truly amazing how quickly a year goes by if you're having beer-drinking fun. Such is the case with New Groove Artisan Brewery which turns 2 tomorrow. Last year's party was a real hoot, no reason to think this year's won't be the same. Go there.

Oh, some fun pix below from their 1th.

#FunkCollective Happy Faces

I was planning on posting the remaining photos from the Birds Fly South Funk Collective event but FB is non-cooperative today. Hacked by the Russians??
Anyway, I’ll do it when things return to business as usual.



So it appears that FB has made the appropriate repairs and now videos and pictures are publishable again.
I have compiled a collection of images from the #FunkCollective fun time so, in no particular order, relive those exciting moments:

Until next year, Cheers!!

Fire Forge Brewery's First Anniversary

Big day yesterday at Fireforge Crafted Beer's big One Year Anniversary celebration (hope you were there). Big crowd, big fun and Big Ass fans kept the place hopping and comfortable while enjoying the beer lineup, including two anniversary releases: a Wee Heavy Scotch Ale and a Belgian Chocolate Quad.

I was pleased to be part of the pouring team, joining other volunteers (hey, Bob Muller) and FF staff to make sure the wait for a beer was minimum (or non-existent).

Exciting music outdoors in the biergarten, Anniversary cake to share and the unveiling of the official Fire Forge Brewery sign (at last!) made for a memorable day and I join others who say "can't wait till next year!"
I'll drink to that. Cheers!!

Cryo Hops - an Explanation

 I've been noticing the term "cryo hops" show up more and more often. Didn't mean much to me so I decided to do some research (it's my job, you know).

This site below seemed to provide the best answers, so I have added the link. At the moment I'm searching for info from any of our local breweries who might be using the powder.

Stay tuned, I'll report back shortly.
