The 99th Pint – Devil’s Britches IPA

A Friday evening, I met a friend at Highland Brewery. That night, I knew I was going to start this series but I didn't plan what I would drink. I want this to be an organic sort of experience. I'm of the school that any decision you make is the right decision at the right time.  Consequently, as we go along this journey, I want to drink what feels right and then write about it.

day 2: grab a beer and just listen.

i got a text the other day from a friend. a fairly new friend, actually. someone that my wife and i have connected with, and all three of us have felt that this newly found friendship has the potential to be a great one. anyway, i received this text from the friend, who is experiencing an amazingly reflective time in her life right now, asking if we all wanted to get together for beers. the main reason? for her to share with someone all of her thoughts and feelings. she needed a sounding board, someone to just listen and be present with her.

A Wee Bit Heavy Love Story

After way too many drinks one night, somehow the idea of a flight sounded right. I normally stick to my IPAs and brews that I have a connection to (Stone Brewery, I love you). Anyway, that night I can't tell you what else I tasted in that flight. It was like there was nothing else in those teeny glasses. Nothing mattered once I had one sweet sip of my newest (oldest) obsession.

Open Hearts and Craft Beers

Once upon a time, I had the pleasure of working with some of the best teachers in Asheville. I will spare you the long backstory (there are beers to be sipped). What I will tell you is that the school where we all worked closed shockingly and abruptly. The children we taught were left without a school. We, teachers, were left without our jobs and away from the children we loved so very much. Fast forward to now, 3 months later, and two of my former colleagues are in the beginning stages of opening up Open Hearts Village, a holistic and heart centered preschool, here in Asheville. There is no doubt that this school will make a huge and wonderful impact on the children of Asheville and on everyone involved. Ok, so what’s all this have to do with beer? We’re getting there. As you may know from past posts, I love the idea of mixing beers and making a positive difference. Well, children are our future, you know? What this school is attempting to create will be great for our future, for our kids. Be a part of that greatness. As we all know, schools cost money. And they …

Make A Positive Difference – Have A Beer

While you, me and everyone we know tend to think of Oskar Blues as a local exclusively to Brevard, they actually started out in Colorado. And they intend to help Colorado out. They recently started a 501(c)(3) Non-profit Foundation, Can’d Aid. “It’s been a 15 year mission for me to organize a way to give back to the communities that helped build our businesses,” says owner, Dale Katechis said.
