Title: Got the Nod
Post by: a10t2 on June 25, 2011, 05:29:20 AM
They've had me in the bullpen for a while, but today the owner smacked me on the ass and sent me trotting out to the mound. I am Sean Terrill, Head Brewer.

... I already changed one of the recipes. ::)

Yup, I'm now making more than I did delivering pizza. As long as I don't stop to break it down hourly. ;)

The brewery will be there, but I probably won't be able to make it personally. It's two days before Burning Man and in the opposite direction.

Pretty cool on both counts.

Being yourself is always cool. If that makes you a hippie, so be it.

If you go to Silverton, take the train from Durango. We did it with our kids not long ago and you can fill a memory card with pictures.

Wait, you're in Silverton? I kept thinking you were in Silverthorne...
Crap. That's further...Oh, well. Small planet. I'll still go...

I get that a lot. Going to Denver-area festivals is fun. One guy actually told me that we'd misspelled Silverthorne on the banner. :o
