Awesome…

Hunter S. Thompson was a homebrewer…

“I was making my own beer at the time and Willard put a great strain on the aging process; I had to lock the stuff up to keep him from getting at it before the appointed moment… Willard arrived shortly before I packed up and left for the East; we had a convivial few weeks, and, as a parting gesture, I left him a five-gallon jug of beer that I did not feel qualified to transport across the nation. It still had a week or so to go in the jug, then another few weeks of aging in quart bottles, after which it would have had a flavor to rival the nectar of the gods. Willard’s only task was to bottle it and leave it alone until it was ready to drink. Unfortunately, his thirst threw a heavy shadow on the schedule.”

I knew he helped the dudes at Flying Dog get ideas and hung out with them regularly and that Ralph Steadman, his illustrator, made their labels. But that’s cool…

The Brew Kettle Came Today…

19 January, 2009



Its been three long years since I’ve last brewed one of my (honorable mention) award winning brews (that I won simply for participation). Homebrewing is the hobby I was looking for, found, lost and have now become reacquainted with.

I just got my 4 gallon kettle today and will be brewing on Wednesday (barring any mishaps that may arise). I can’t wait.
