Home sweet home :)
Thanks for posting that Denny.
I'm off to the LHBS to pick up grain for three batches this week. Maibock, Kolsch and BVIP. Also doing an amber with Rogue's Green Dragon Brew Crew on Thursday, can't wait.
Thank you BEER!

You know, I really need to do some BVIP again. That would be a big hit here in Idaho. My buds would have full growlers in no time. ;D

Do it. You'll be closer to me.  I'm sure that's what Denny loves most about Oregon. His nearness to The Weaze. The feel of my presence so near comforts him. He just won't say it in public.  ;D

That is funny.  The difference from western Oregon and most of Idaho is extreme.
Indeed, most of eastern Oregon is going...what?     

Coastal folks riding the cusp,
err I mean...for the Punatic...
those folks riding the plate up and oer have new ideas, it seems. 8)

Cheers to innovation and expansion of the American Craftbrew!

Oregon.  Isn't that just halfway between Washington and Cali?
Nice mix you got there for the brew.
