Someone just made me aware that there are loads of SF Beer week pictures available here

The fun thing was going through and just seeing how many of the 150+ events that we on, and the ones that I made it too…. and survived to tell the tale.

thanks Gabbi.


Our Barrel Ale and Cool People


Anchor barrel aged, yumminess!

Anchor, february 09!!

Just coming back over the pictures of what has been a fairly hectic three days, 5pm time in the UK, and just gone 9am in the US here in California.    I kinda smashed my 20D canon, dropping it from 15′ up a ladder on to flat concrete wasn’t suc a clever idea; so the best of the pics will soley be from the iPhone.

Spent a hazy evening at the Anchor Brewery – where J Brooks, of the Brookston Beer Bulletin cast the first toast.   Then the bottles were opened by after a great open speach by Fritz himself.    Big magnums of the beer poured to all those clamering to get some.   And nicely done too.    It was a blend of the four beers, Liberty, Fog, Steam, and the Porter, aged in their own barrels – from the distillery.

The speach will be available on a podcast download from The Brewing Network.

I think I uploaded the wrong pic, but what the hell...

Sometimes I just sit back in wonder, and in some fear were my travels are taking me and the fantastic people that I get to spend time with – one being the very cool chap, and home brewer extraordanaire Johnny Lieberman from Los Angeles!     A member of the very cool, dedicated, and talent group (homebrew club) the Maltose Falcons – I had the serious luxury and pleasure of hanging with them in February at their award bash at the iconic Anchor Brewery.

Why I write this – well, I have been mooching the web looking for a picture and stumpled his blog – and there was the day!   here

Wow – and this was only this year…
