Brooklyn is pretty big, but do try Barcade, Mugs Alehouse, and for sours and Belgians Spuytin Duyvel is a must.

Did you hear about the dyslexic blues man who went to the crossroads and sold his soul to Santa?
Was he named Johnson Robert?

I wonder when these watchdogs will expose the toxic dangerous substance that are used in making pretzels, pretzel buns, and in Germany the Laugenbrot that I loved to eat.

Hint Laugenbrot=lye bread.

Yeah, I told Denny and Mike to drop everything they were doing and GO! I think that they now agree.  ;)

The Pub / Re: Boulder Flooding

Bummer.  A friend of mine was caught in the Big Thompson flood back in the 70s.  She got out OK. Never had anything like this when I lived there though (late 70s, early 80s).
A friend who grew up in Longmont says he was up in the Big Thompson canyon after the flood, and could not recognize it. That was said to be up around 32,000 cfs. That is as big as what they 'flood' the Grand Canyon with today.

Hope many of the BA people are doing OK, as they might be in some risk areas.

Edited the cfs number, could not find as big of a number as I remembered.

Craftsman (and probably some other manufacturers) makes a 7/8" and 11/16" ratcheting box wrench. Tom recommended it to me, and I will pass on the recommendation. Makes for one tool to wrench them all.
Hey, where is Tom these days?

Working 2 jobs and dealing with kids!  I heard from him the other day.
That was my guess, glad it was not something bad. His quick wit is missed around here.

This article lost credibility with this line in the first paragraph "loaded with both toxic and genetically modified ingredients, including GMO corn syrup, GMO coloring and fish bladder". Are fish bladders toxic or GMO?

Halfway through, I said to myself it was cribbed from the Food Babe, which was confirmed with the link towards the end.

I wonder how they feel about plastic being used in the beer? PVPP is even Reinheitsgebot compliant, since it is not found in the finished beer.

There seems to be too may people who think they are getting out of this alive.  I really wish they would notice that we all have an expiration date and just let the tiny little threats go once in awhile.  Too much of anything is bad for you, don't seat the small stuff.

Have not read that in detail.

As the famous undertaker/poet down the street says - "with one birth you also get one death."

Thomas Lynch is who I refer to. He has written many books on the dismal trade (undertaking). Those are thoughtful, and excellent reads.

Homebrewing is my  hobby obsession lifestyle these days.

I do work out, mainly so that I can I do heavy lifting required when brewing. Travel has been a passion for 25 years, and now it also involves beer related destinations.

This summer I got an old 12 speed road bike to ride around town.

There area few adventures I still want to do. Another river trip through the Grand Canyon is on my bucket list. Some long hikes too, but my wife is not so much into those these days.

On the side note.
Did you see last brewing tv episode?
What happened to all the people there?
And who is the Kidd guy?

Dawson is now brand manager for Wyeast. Chip works for Summit brewing. Not sure what Keeler is up to.

Chip started a new vlog earlier this year called Chop & Brew that pretty much picks up where BTV left off. It's pretty good - well worth checking out.

I was told Keeler is at Brewers Supply Group.

My first all grain batches were done with about a $20 investment for a bucket, Phil's phalse bottom, and a vinyl hose with a clamp. Used that for a few years. Now BIAB is even cheaper.

Kegs? If I ever stop Homebrewing, I have a small fortune in kegs.  :)

Get the legging set up now. Kegs have been going up in price as the supply dries up. Then go all grain.
