Merry Christmas Message, Craft Beer Style

Just stopped by the Greenville Growler Station and picked up a growler of Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits' Victory At Sea Coffee Vanilla Imperial Porter, which should make waiting for Santa's appearance that much easier (pass the ice cream, wouldja!). That 10% abv will keep this lad's spirits bright!!!

A tree so bright, it doesn't need lights! At the Greenville Hyatt Tree display.
 Merry Christmas to all and I hope we get to share a pint or two next New Year!!

Swamp Rabbit Brewery and Taproom Update

Traveling thru beautiful downtown Traver's Rest the other day gave me the opportunity to stop by the under-construction Swamp Rabbit Brewery to check on progress.
While I was sticking my head in the door and watching the floor being sanded and smoothed, Ben Pierson walked up and we had the chance to talk briefly (he's understandably very busy).

Ben was a bit bummed cause the floor is not yet done, but he is taking it in stride, dedicated to getting things done correctly the first time so that they won't come back to bite him on a certain anatomical feature later on.

I wish him all the best for this project cause I am very excited about the future possibility of biking from HFB World Headquarters up to his facility for a well-earned pint or three.

All the best to Ben and Cheers to y'all!!
