I hope you get some large shoes. A brewery is no place for bare hobbit feet.

Fortunately, most of the time I spend in the brewery it won't be operating!

Cool beans... One question though.... I've always wondered if the Shire is really full of hobbits and how do you work around them?

AAMOF, I am the head hobbit....;)

More like Gandolf the Gray!

Congratulations, I've loved all the Oakshire beers I've been able to try. Matt is missed back here in Flossmoor.

Well, I checked the online list of the local bottle shop. No joy :( I wanted to give your new digs a taste test.

Have fun!

VT is a special situation for Oakshire since it's so far away.  Apparently a couple guys there wanted to bring it in so Oakshire told 'em sure, but we can't give you any marketing support.  Please let me know how the beer travelled!

2 days in and my job titile has been changed from Brewery Ambassador to Field Educator.  I like that a lot better and it's much more descriptive of what I'll be doing.

The Espresso Stout is excellent, IMHO.

Only two days on and promoted?! You're slipping Denny. ;)

Be careful recommending spots to buy Denny. I don't know about Oregon, but many states forbid brewers from recommending specific places to purchase their beer. I think California requires recommending a minimum of five places. Three tier related.
