Having tried the alcoholic soy sauce, I don't think triple bock and Utopias taste anything alike.

Nate's doing some good stuff, but I didn't hear about that one yet.  Sounds interesting!

My daughter and son-in-law live just around the corner from the Blue Bird.  I stopped in there yesterday hoping to see you Tom.  I know you are busy with the new project, so wasn't surprised when I didn't get to meet you.  Another time.  I get that way fairly regularly
I don't work there anymore, I gave notice to focus on my own stuff.  I finished training my replacement last week. :)

Great shots.  I was looking forward to seeing it in person but the clouds blew in about an hour before it started.  I guess we were lucky it was clear before then. ::)

I would love not to have loans, but then I wouldn't have a 15 bbl system on the way either. ;)

I got too busy to keep doing it.  I am hoping to either do it on my own or do it if they run it again.

I am hoping to see a genetically-engineered tree that is 100% American Chestnut except for the insertion of the blight resistance genes in my lifetime.
Do you know of anyone working on it?  That is a relatively straightforward thing to do, the trick is identifying the necessary genes.

We've been very impressed by Reuben's and Stoup.

There are lots of different SBA-backed loan programs. The two most common (504 and 7a) are available to startups.
True.  Unfortunately we were told we don't qualify for either of those programs.

I'm not sure I'll be on the Seattle side at all on Friday, but if I am then heading to meet you will be easy enough.  Send me a text.

We did Peddlers, Bad Jimmy's, Reuben's, Stoup, and Maritime on Sunday.  Good times :)

Ah, yeah I misunderstood.  I don't think breweries are pulling fast ones and enterering a different beer under their main beer names.  I would guess if Redhook brewed up a special ESB they would enter it under a different name than "Redhook ESB"
if it is entered as Redhook ESB it has to arrive in regular Redhook ESB labeled bottles.  Not to say they couldn't put a different beer in the bottle though.  If it is a beer that is not commercially available in bottles it can come with a generic label, but obviously that doesn't apply to Redhook ESB.

A more likely explanation seems to me that after a couple of decades of drinking regularly, Jim's own ADH2 expression levels are high so it is broken down quickly by his body and yeast ADH2 does not play a role.

A more likely explanation still is that after decades of drinking, he's figured out how to hide it. ;)
That reminds me of the time I went on a ride-along with NJSP.  The trooper pulled over a guy for speeding and smelled alcohol, but the guy passed every bit of the field sobriety test except the last one.  The last one he failed badly - it is the HGN test and is a physiological response.  I was talking to the trooper and he didn't get it, he said the guy seemed totally fine but the HGN said he was hammered.  So he took him in for a breathalyzer and the guy blew over .20.

Probably a combination of both :)

I've had it twice, two separate years.  I think it is awesome. :)

You could take the bus to NW 15th and Leary, then walk over to Maritime.  Hales is a little further from there.

If you would rather go to Fremont Brewing, the Odin taproom is really close and opens at 3.  Brouwers is not far from there either.

Let me know when you'll be where, I might be able to join you for a pint.
