And then there was beer. And it was not bad.


We reached two milestones this weekend.

Milestone 1: Keith and I both completed the Golden Leaf Half-Marathon in Aspen. We’d trained for this all summer and it was a great race but who really cares because….

Milestone 2: We celebrated the run by drinking our first homebrew.  And it was good.

Both beers (Pale Ale and Nut Brown Ale) could use some more carbonation (and the Pale Ale could use more hops) – but overall we’re happy with the results. Thanks to everyone who helped us with these first two batches. Please stop by to help us drink them.

Cheers,

Steve

We discovered that there is nothing better than a super cold homebrew after a long trail run.

    Well done gents, on both accounts.

    I drank my last nut brown ale last night. After a couple of weeks aging in the fridge it seems like the flavor had definitely matured, maybe it fermented a little more too, but it was one of the best nut browns I’ve ever had. My brewer friend in MD says that makes sense as the darker the brew and the higher the alcohol the longer you want it to age.
