I'll add that my wife had moonshine out of a ball jar with ZZ Top.  Not beer, but a pretty good story nonetheless.   ;D

I have an All-Clad non-stick omelette pan that's been working great for several years.

Hmm..."schlong" kept popping up (pun intended   ;D) in my random beer names almost every other time.  Strange.

UPDATED 5/7/10:

My name is Matt and I'm 31 years old, married, and have one child.  I'm an attorney working on behalf of a state agency.

I've been brewing since November 2005.  I brewed three or four extract batches w/grain and then moved to partial mashing.  Starting at about batch ten, I went all-grain.  I just brewed batch 71 last weekend.  I became interested in craft beer when I turned 21 -- back in 2000 -- and was working as a server at Boscos Brew Pub in Nashville, TN.  I remember one of the Nashville homebrew clubs meeting there regularly and thinking to myself, "these guys are nuts...you must have to invest in thousands of dollars worth of equipment to make decent beer at home!"  Obviously, I was wrong!

Prior to going to law school, I was a working guitar player in Nashville.  I did this for about eight years, recording and touring pretty regularly, but not with anyone particularly notable.  After so many years of making peanuts and having to work odd jobs to support my music habit, I decided to go back to school.  Other than having to deal with such an awful job market right now, going back to school was the best thing I ever did, aside from marrying my wonderful wife.   ;)  I still play guitar quite a bit.  In fact, I just recorded some tracks for my brothers' (two of 'em) forthcoming album a few weeks ago.

Hmm...I was listening to Sirius the other day and the DJ said it was going to retail for over $300.  I guess he was wrong.

I just did the ziplock baggie thing for the first time a few days ago with some Wyeast 1214.  I'm planning on saving some 1272 using this method next week.

Not the greatest quality photo, but at least it's beer related.   ;D

The remasters do sound incredible.  Unfortunately, the remastered package is $300+, which is a little disappointing to me.  I mean, I'd love to have the whole remastered catalog, but I can't shell out that kind of cash.

The Pub / Re: The Martini Thread
« on: November 13, 2009, 03:26:43 AM »
Every so often, I enjoy a beefeater gin martini, dirty.  I like to add just enough vermouth to kiss the rocks.  Then add the gin, some olive juice, and shake.  Pour into chilled martini glass and garnish with some speared olives.

I had a beer with actor James Marsden, who played cyclops in the X-Men movies.  He was also in Superman Returns.

I had several beers with country music figures when I lived in Nashville.  Terri Clark bought me a beer at Tootsie's once...haha.

Oh, and this is pretty lame, but I've had beers with Gavin Rossdale of Bush, the guys in Maroon 5, Sister Hazel, Leigh Nash of Sixpence (I grew up with her ex-husband) and plenty of other rock n roll has-beens back when I was playing in my band.

edit: I just remembered that I had a beer with Josh Homme in NYC when my band opened for Eagles of Death Metal.

I joined at the Surly rally last month -- what a cool event!  I wish more establishments in my area (Twin Cities, MN) offered the pub discount, but I'm going to start bugging the managers at those establishments to get on board.

If you need some material to show them, contact Kathryn Porter at the AHA.

I've been in contact with Kathryn.  She was incredibly responsive to my inquiry about getting more establishments on board and sent me some materials.

I modified my post as you were typing, tom.   ;)  I wondered if that's what he meant.
