Title: Yellowhammer Article
Post by: majorvices on July 23, 2014, 07:24:42 PM
Sorry about the over abundance of self promotion this week. But I thought this was a good article and it shows some of the big changes we are currently in the process of making. Plus you get to see how gosh darn handsome I am.  :D

never apologize for self promotion Keith. that is an excellent article. makes me wish I was back east so I could visit. one of these days I'm going to make a long drive east and I'm trying to figure out a way to visit you and leos in the same trip. It'll be easier if I skip the grand canyon in favor of the largest ball of twine in Minnesota.

We need to all get together, rent a big-ass van. Start with Schmidlin's place in WA, his Sean's pub in CO, Ron's in whats-it (Jersery?) then head south to YH. Who am I forgetting? Oh, Thirtsy Monk's in WI. Maybe stop by and pick up Denny in OR.

We will need a big bus. That would be a trip one could write a book about.  ;)

I do have a lot of breweries to visit!

In more seriousness than it probably warrants, I wonder if there is actually a market for that kind of travel service.  Not nationwide in one pass but maybe week long regional trips hitting big and small breweries and pubs each day.

Hmmmm.  My mother-in-law belong to a group called the "Spirit Club" that setup trips for retirees.  This would give a whole new meaning to the name.   ;)

Maybe when I decide to leave the exciting life of IT Middle Management.

Paul the Spirit Club bus tour manager. Sounds quite important.

I would go for it.

Great times at Yellowhammer this afternoon. Great tunes, great friends, and EXCELLENT brew. I think the final talley was 16 folks at our table. Some sent regrets and want included on the next outing. We sat under a HUGE Pecan tree, played corn hole, and Viking Chess (I think). We won every game we were challenged to. Thanks Keith!  I hope you found your keys!

Hey Dwayne, I never found my keys! Weirdest damn thing. That sort of thing should happen when you have been drinking. The most potent stuff I had touched all day was La Croix!

Thanks for coming by and let me know the next time you are coming by and I'll try to stay a little longer.

Thanks guys! Really excited about getting six packs out in the market. We have a new bomber bottler we are running now too and two of my partners (the two mentioned in the article) have come down to work full time.

With the six packs (and soon four packs) and expanded bomber line up we should finally start having the shelf presence I think our beer deservers.  It's a pretty exciting time.

When I lived in Decatur (way too many years ago) everything north of the river from Madison county was dry. This still the case? We used to watch at the bridge - people fill their trunks over the river at the package liquor store, then get stopped by the sheriffs watching with binoculars. Always wondered why people didn't catch on - it wasn't like the cops were hiding at all.


Gratz on the success. Huntsville is a wonderful place! Hope to make it through there next year on a little pilgrimage.

Most of those places are wet now. even Culman is wet now. Most of the dry counties are in LA.

We're down in Mobile (watched the Moon Pie drop and saw the Village People - whatever). Today we head to the Beergarten to catch a bite and have a cool drank. I had a Spaten Dunkel.  But a sign caught my eye. (Notice the logo in the bottom right corner.)
