Okay folks. Stop growing and/or shrinking. The first time we ordered t-shirts, we ran out of smalls and had a mountain of XLs. Which meant that the second time we ordered t-shirts, we stocked up on smalls and didn’t order as many XLs. But now we have a somewhat smallish mountain of smalls and are
Rest assured, we will be doing super secret Monday Night business planning instead. If that makes you feel any better. It doesn’t, does it. Sorry.
Ah, HOToberFest. It was a lot of fun last year, and it was a lot of fun this year. A highly recommended Atlanta-area beer festival. Sarah and I decided to accidentally wear the same exact shirt. We looked like idiots. Drunken idiots. Skipping through the festival. Moving on… Notably, this was sweet little baby Oliver’s
No brewing tonight, folks. Look our for a HOToberFest update post later this week, however. Enjoy the cool weather, break out the cardigan! And don’t forget to get your Monday Night discount at Hop City ? simply mention Monday Night Brewing at Hop City to get a discount on your entire purchase of craft beer.
Oops. It’s Friday. Better late than on the weekend, that’s my motto. We brewed up some Drafty Kilt Scotch Ale on Monday. Which would have been fine, except we ended up boiling off over 20% of our initial volume. Which is far more than normal. What does this mean? We won’t end up with the
Attention everyone, Please be happy. Like this: Why? Because we’re brewing tonight at Jeff’s house at 8pm. Unfortunately we don’t have any beer to serve, so it will be BYOB. Joel has requested that someone bring him more Bacardi Ice Cantaloupe. I’m not even sure that’s a real flavor… See you tonight! We’ll be brewing
As much as it pains us to put off brewing again, we’re going to have to. Turns out the GABF tapped us (me) out for the next few days.
Last night was my first Great American Beer Festival experience in Denver, CO. Before heading back for another night of beer in a couple hours, I share with you a bulleted list of learnings: There are a lot of people here There is a lot of beer here The Keystone Light booth never has a
Let me tell you what I’m excited about next week. It’s once again time for the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO. That’s 455 breweries serving an expected 2,200 different beers. Joel is hoping that Smirnoff Ice Watermelon counts as a beer. Which it doesn’t. We aren’t a production facility yet, but we will
Rest up friends, and enjoy your last day wearing white pants. We will not be brewing tonight.
We just received shipment of our new 16oz glassware! They look a little something like this: We will be selling these for somewhere in the $2.50-3 range. Get excited.
No brewing on Monday to give us some much needed “business planning” time. Actually I don’t know why I put that in quotes. It will be literal business planning time. No quotes necessary.
Tova and Ida (from Sweden) sent us the following note: We found IsItMondayNow.com and we LOVE it! Originally our favorite website was erdetfredag.dk (“Is it Friday” in Danish. And yes, we are trilingual). So we started promoting that web page at work, and now all 50 of us check it daily. So our next mission
This special edition of “Monday Night recap” is dedicated to Scott Williams, showing his best side in the above picture. Scott does the work of three Joels combined (which isn’t saying a ton), freeing up the rest of us to do things like drink beer and talk to newcomers. Thanks for hopping, cleaning, popping, and
We’re brewing tonight at Jeff’s house. 8pm. Join us. Don’t make us beg.
Well folks, these are them. When we launch, these are the tap handles you should look for at your local bar. And if you don’t see them, you should ask about them. Let us know what you think! Note: Although these look very similar to neckties, they are not to be worn to formal events
Happy birthday, Jeff! In honor of your super special 30th birthday, we vow to NOT brew tonight. Have fun binging on cake and thinking about how awesome it will be when we brew again. I hope you enjoy your Bud Light cake. It looks like it’s oozing radioactive pus.
We brewed another experimental IPA last night, this one with just a hint of rye malt. Our last experimental IPA had just a hint of kilned coffee malt and turned out pretty delicious. It’s a roasty toasty IPA. Look for that on tap in 2-3 weeks. We are still dry hopping it. Also we are
Tonight, 8 pm, we’ll be brewing up some remarkably tasty IPA with a splash of rye. You won’t be able to taste that, but we’ve got some great beers on tap. Guest appearance is expected from Joel, proud new father to Oliver, who is less than a week old. And is very cute.
Well folks, it happened. Joel had a baby. Or more accurately, Joel’s wife had a baby. Oliver was born yesterday, a 6 lb 15 oz bundle of safe and adorable. In Oliver’s short 32 hours on this earth, he has already demonstrated a surprising ability to adhere to operating procedures, coordinate deliveries, and manage multiple
There’s no brewing tonight, but we’re on track to brew next week. That should give you a full week to digest the 2nd round of our tap handle revisions, with different, more contrasted colors. You can see the first versions here. And the Drafty Kilt tap handle mock up below. We still haven’t seen these
