    The grand opening was pretty amazing yesterday. I think there were around 1600 people there, way more than anyone imagined. I think madhouse would be a good term for it.

    Sorry you couldn't make it Bubba, but I think you will enjoy a regular tour much more than you would have the grand opening shindig.

    Wow - 1,600. Good for Terrapin. Probably a good thing I wasn't there - I don't deal well with crowds - someone might jostle me and spill my beer.

    Sam Adams beer recall:

    Boston Beer Co., the brewer of Samuel Adams craft beers, said it is recalling an undetermined amount of beer because of defective bottles that may contain glass particles.

    The company said the defective bottles came from a glass company that provides Boston Beer with about a quarter of its bottles. The "small grains or bits of glass" were discovered during a quality control operation at the firm's Cincinnati brewery, Boston Beer said. The problem was confirmed Friday, and traced to bottles coming from a single manufacturing plant.

    I wish Sam Adams had a better sampler pack in the Mid West. They have their ‘Winter Classics’ just before Christmas, but I can’t find anything like that for their warm weather brews.

    Calling Prana and all other hop heads

    Once again the beer fest was very good. Over 30 brewers showed up from NC, GA, SC, MD, TN, & CO.
    Favs from the tasting included:
    Duck Rabbit (Farmville, NC) Russian Imperial Stout (10% abv) & Milk Stout - but I missed the Barleywine,
    Foothills Brewery (Winston-Salem, NC) Seeing Double IPA & Rainbow Trout ESB,
    Top of the Hill (Chapel Hill, NC) Rams Head IPA,
    Sweetwater Brewing (Atlanta, GA) 420 Extra Pale Ale,
    Terrapin Brewing (Athens, GA) India-Style Brown Ale,
    Oskar Blues (Lyons, CO) Old Chub & Gordon.

    Of course there were many many more (for a full list go to www.hickoryhops.com), but good music, friends, beer, & weather are never a bad thing.

    DARWIN, Australia (AP) -- An Australian driver who secured a carton of beer in his car with a seat belt but left a 5-year-old child unrestrained was fined 750 Australian dollars ($710; €460), police said Tuesday.

    Constable Wayne Burnett said he was "shocked and appalled" when he pulled over the unregistered car on Friday in the central Australian town of Alice Springs.

    The 30-can carton was strapped in between the two adults sitting in the back seat of the car. The child was also in back, on the vehicle's floor.

    "The child was sitting in the lump in the center, unrestrained," Burnett told reporters Tuesday.

    "I haven't ever seen something like this before," he said. "This is the first time that the beer has taken priority over a child."

    The driver was fined for driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle, and for failing to ensure a child was wearing a seat belt.

    Alice Springs Police Superintendent Sean Parnell expressed shock at the incident in a statement released Tuesday.

    "This serves as a timely reminder to all drivers to ensure they wear seat belts and ensure as is their responsibility that all passengers in their vehicle are secured in the appropriate manner," he said.

    While on vacation I and a Triple Stout from Trinidad called Mickelson (or something similar).

    It was nice and smooth, but I found it to be too sweet for me.

    I find the recent trend of microbreweries offering double IPA's to be both delicious and disasterous .

    This morning, the Rocky Mountain News put on an article regarding the differences between 3.2% beer and regular beer. Interesting read.

    This was done becuase our blue law is getting dissolved and we'll be able to buy liquor, wine and full strength beer on Sundays beginning in July.

    Story on NPR -
    TITLE: Action Needed to Halt Staggering Cost of Beer
    http://www.npr.org/templates/story/s...oryId=90483748

    HIGHLIGHT:
    The world's most important liquid is more expensive than it used to be. No, not oil. Beer.
    Is that true beer is more important than oil ?

    Today is our semi-regular office beer swap. Our fair Commonwealth makes it difficult (and espensive!) to purchase beer in anything but a full case - no running to the grocery store and buying a six pack for us. Eight of us purchased a case and will split them up and mix-and-match over lunch. Instant variety pack!

    Needless to say, it is difficult to work on a Friday when you know there are eight cases of good beer in the office.

    Bad news: My microbrew source will no longer be selling microbrews. They have a distribution problem and now feel the various micro/macros delivered by budmillercoors will fill the demand

    Good news: All remaining micros are on sale for $2.50 per six pack. I bought most of what was left. When thats gone I will have to drive to Champaign.

    TOFB, where's the best place in Champaign for good beer?

    I am currently sitting on my patio drinking a 20th Anniversary Imperial IPA from Anderson Valley Brewing Company. it's good - but I have had better (and the 22oz was 7 bucks).

    If you ever spot some Mad River Double IPA and you like hoppy brews, buy it. You won't regret it.

    Next on my list tonight is some Hoegarden White Beer. Haven't tried that yet.

    I am a wheat bier fiend.

    Seriously... a FIEND.

    Hoegaarden, Franziskaner!, Oberon... (my faves)

    If you're in MKE or Madison and want to go out for a wheat beer, I'm game.

    Never thought I"d say this, but ... the fridge is starting to look empty. Sure, there's still a bunch of big Belgian 750s, and some esoteric rauchbiers, but no 12 ounce/355 ml everyday drinkers, except for a lone bottle of Unibroue Maudite. No wheats, no pale ales, no IPAs, no nothing.

    Tomorrow, on my daily errand-running stroll through the inner-ring suburb I call home, I'm going to stop at the local beer store and pick up a couple of sixes of wheat; none American craft, another German. I hope they have some Southern Tier Hop Sun.
