I have so many things to update you on, starting with this new series. But before we get there, I want to update you on school. No, not college, I am officially done with college! Instead, I went to a beer school.
My new series is called Our Fair City, a la NPR's Car Talk. When Car Talk used to air they had this riddle every episode, a sort of problem solver that they called a Puzzler. Whenever they told you the address to mail your answer to, they always said, "Cambridge - our fair city - MA, 02238..." I have fond memories of driving around my own fair city, listening to Car Talk, exploring my town.
I went to this brew school to taste some beers with my co-workers. It was a lovely night of laughs and good drinks and exploring new places. The place is called Taps From Scratch and they brew a couple of different kinds of beer on-site. My favorite was a few of the blends which they share with you that others have experimented with. The place is set up like a house, with a room for a band and multiple rooms set up for lounge areas with refrigerated brews in the hallways. My boss joked that it was so relaxed that it felt like we were in a house party and that they police were going to come in to shut the party down at any moment. They never did and we enjoyed our beer all night.
My boss and I have small beer kits and we want to go back over the summer together to learn how to use them! Not sure if we ever will get to it - but we've both have had good intentions for a while now. I have had so many plans for the summer and so far I have conquered most of them - like volunteering for two events, one being the Florida Blogger Conference. I've even started planning a mini-honeymoon for us before we take our big honeymoon to Buenos Aires + Mendoza. So far, a productive summer, I just hope I don't let the entire summer slip away from me.
