So to fill you in this is my contribution to raise money for KZYX, our local public radio station here in Mendocino county. I am W.Dan and I do a show every Thursday night from 8 to 10 p.m. pst called The Treehouse
, it is a comedy show and you can listen in at www.kzyx.org
. Every December the station has an on air holiday auction. Every year I offer up four brew sessions, one each night. The winner and four buddies get to brew a beer of their choosing, take an in depth tour of the facilities, play disc golf, taste some beers and such. My brew system is the original pilot brewery for the now defunct Thomas Kemper Brewery which was the first post-prohibition lager micro brewery in the U.S. Kemper was bought by Hart Brewing which eventually morphed into Pyramid Brewing. I brewed for them for five years when their main production was in Seattle in the late 90's.
And now you know "the rest of the story."
