I'm not drinking in January but think I'll pass on the ass.

@DDD Dad you doing sober January again this year too, per usual?

Yeah, I gave myself a drinking pass through last night since I was still on vacation.  Today's my first day working since 12/16.

So I'll go through at least 2/4 to keep it all square.

we’re all still drinking beer, right? my first beer of the year is roughly my 50 sierra nevada celebration since thanksgiving week.

Is that why Amber is coming back? ;)

A rare Monday night beer. Arvo IPA, Bremer Brewing, Waverly IA. New brewery that opened recently near my in-laws and very close to a place I mountain bike regularly.

This is excellent. Will come in handy when my FIL wants to bail on family events.

Thought you might be interested, I've been begging Chip to make a Czech Černé for... well... probably 20 years now.  Last night he sent me an email and said this about the most recent beer they've brewed:

"It's got notes of toffee and caramel from a generous dosing of CaraBohemian malt, a touch of dark roasted malt, quite dark.  OG about 12°P, firm bitterness from Sladek and Saaz hops. Likely to find a version in Prague’s oldest brewery."

It's finishing in the bright tank right now but should be packaged in the near future.  I don't know the name, he said he named it after me, but I find that... unlikely. :)

Hey Al,

I enjoyed Pompeii from Toppling Goliath out of Iowa last year. Are you familiar with them? Anything new from them this year.

Is this a set up?

No, I’m not a beer snob but enjoy trying new beers, especially IPA’s and Hazy IPA’s. I don’t know all the ins and outs of this subject matter but should have expected this kind of response. Go ahead and enlighten me.

Yes, I’m extremely familiar. I live very close to their brewery and my wife worked there for 5 years. Drink their beer regularly.

Pompeii is my favorite beer of theirs. They tend to keep 7-8 beers on shelves at all times, but rotate their line up a lot. They do a lot of beers that won’t see significant distribution

they don't make very good beer. also, i don't see anything about them going out of business...appears they posted on instagram a few hours ago that they're struggling and could use some more sales but nothing indicating they're done.

I know nothing about this place, but that's a pretty good sign they're swirling the drain.

I follow some pretty average to poor breweries on social media and I've never seen one beg for customers.
