Fall is here

The last few days have seen cool, dry air and clear blue skies that remind us once again that we're lucky to be in western North Carolina. As one of my politically incorrect friends in college used to say, it's Pearl Harbor weather - there's a nip in the air. It's time to drink up those hefeweisens, pilsners, and wheats and make room in the fridge for Octoberfests, stouts, porters, and barleywines. It won't be long before we'll be sipping a winter warmer beside a crackling fire while listening to the wind outside.

My growing supply includes:

Victory Hop Devil
Cottonwood Endo
Allagash 11th Anniversary Ale
He'Brew Bittersweet Lenny's R.I.P.A.
Weyerbacher Autumnfest

What's in your fridge?

    Guys, I really need ONE more ticket for the brewfest tomorrow.

    I've got some friends flying in from NY and we're short one. PLEASE email me at jaycpa1@hotmail.com if you/or someone you know has an extra ticket.

    I really appreciate it. Thanks.

  2. Jay,
    I hear that, despite what the newspaper said, that Barley's still had a few Brewfest tickets as of last night.

    I'm loving the Allagash 11th Anniversary.

    See you all at Brewfest!

  3. Jay, I hope you can find a ticket.

    I'm looking forward to seeing you, EM. It's been awhile. I'm also glad you like the Allagash. It's worth every penny (and dollar.)

  4. i've heard really good things about that lenny bruce r.i.p.a. - haven't had a chance to check it out, though. is it worth it?
