Up north? Drink beer (part 1)


I’ve Mug Club status at but one brewery right now, and it’s nowhere near my house. 4 1/2 hours from home, and here I am at Beard’s Brewery. Technically, it’s the Coaster Club here, because they dont have space to store mugs for folk. The mug I bring from home.
We only make it up here a few times per year, so this might be my last time here before they move to their new digs around the corner. 

This is a Scotch/Scottish ale, called The Dogman, and is pretty solid. 

The Boulevardier that followed is what happens when a beer and a Manhattan made love. Quite good, and quite boozy.

Of swag and safe carboy handling

I’ve sold a fair few Brew Haulers. Before we moved, I never had to move carboys very far, so when buying gear, it wasn’t something I ever grabbed from the shop. 

What have I been doing with my life?!

Tom and Beth came into the shop this weekend to check up on us, and hand out some product. Last night, I put it to use carrying Tessie’s beer up and down the stairs. These weren’t designed for the 3 gallon carboys, but work well anyways. 

I’ve seen some nasty injuries from carboy mishaps. Get yourself a BrewHauler
