U.S. Explodes Atomic Bombs Near Beers To See If They Are Safe To Drink : Krulwich Wonders… : NPR

My beer cellar is now officially a bomb shelter… LOL


Homebrew Con starts next week!

I’m so excited to be heading to Homebrew Con (the American Homebrewers Association National Homebrewers Conference) next week. I’m getting there a day early so that I can hit the Chop & Brü PreFunk Party on Wednesday night. I’m also excited to have my homebrew club, the Motor City Mashers, there on Club Night.

I’m hoping to do some videos and take photos from the event, so stay tuned. (Note to self: Check on media credentials… LOL!)

If you’re on the fence about attending, don’t be… just go! Check out this video:

BrewDog’s ‘Equity for Punks USA’ coming in May 2016

For those of us here in the United States that didn’t have the opportunity to get in on ‘Equity for Punks’ like those in Europe will get our chance this May!

I’ve been a fan of BrewDog for quite a while. I love their TV show ‘Brew Dogs’ on the Esquire Channel. The crazy things that James Watt and Martin Dickie do in the pursuit of making great beers makes me want to be a professional brewmaster even more. Who knows? Maybe someday I’ll be lucky enough to brew with them!

Equity for Punks USA is a program that will allow anyone living in the US to invest in BrewDog USA, and “…help fuel the craft beer revolution as we combine Europe’s most explosive craft brewery with the world’s most exciting craft beer market!”
