I swear. We can’t take Joel anywhere. Saturday Joel and I made the trek up to the local homebrew store (not so local, by the way). We promptly went crazy like 2 kids in a candy shop. I’ll admit, it’s handy to have Joel there to put together the grain bill, as he knows more about the grains than I do. So it was ESPECIALLY handy this trip, since we ended up with about 200 pounds of grain in 8 different varieties. All told, we spent about $400. Yeah. Not on equipment, but just on grain and hops.
But that’s not why I posted. I posted for 2 reasons: 1) so all the ladies out there could see my sweet Civic packed to the taillights with beer supplies, and 2) to embarrass Joel. I told Joel to get in the picture (yes, fully knowing I would use the picture for the blog, which makes me a complete dork), but I SPECIFICALLY asked him NOT to look like a tool. So what does he do? Flex. Classy, Joel.
