Sorry for not keeping you updated lately. July's been crazy. I had a couple weeks vacation and then we just got back from a longer than expected hospital stay with my daughter. Minor surgery to correct a problem she had. We're back home now, she's good and things are returning to normal.
I haven't seen Jeff in a couple weeks either. Talked to his wife last week and he's still making progress. One highlight to report. Two weeks ago our brew club had it's annual pig roast. 275 lb hog and 28 beers on tap. Anyway, back to the important stuff. Jeff showed up for a couple hours, much to the delight of all the club members and friends. It was a bit torturous for him, not being cleared to start drinking. He did have a good time though. Although, he managed to sneak a couple sips. His first sip was a 12.7% Barley Wine that one of the members set down beside him. I looked over to see him taking a sip and sort of shocked look came over his face, then he grimaced a bit. I walked over and asked him how it was. He smiled, and said "brutal." Then we both laughed. I guess he should have warmed up with something a bit lighter.
Here's a pic of him perusing
the beer list
I'll get over to see him tomorrow and report back.
