Argh! Looks like I'm going to have to miss this one. I'm off a little earlier than planned to see the inlaws in San Diego. I will definitely catch you guys at the next event, though.

Left work and headed to my wife's office to chill.

Which is silly, and I can explain that over a pint in 1 hour...

Had fun last night. It was good to see you guys again and to meet BrandonO and SWMBO. I enjoyed the beers we had last night much more than my last several forays into Bev-Mo. particularly enjoyed the Ommagang?-three philosophers and the Framboise Lambic. I wasn't to impressed with Sam Smiths Oatmeal Stout but it was much better when blended with a little of the Lambic. I was caught off guard by the peat flavor of Oscar Blues Old Chub, definetely want to try a black and tan with Old Chub and a cascade dryhopped amber. the bridgeport IPA was not, and I like IPA. No malt flavor, almost no english hop flavor, and slight aroma.
Now that is done, Look what you HBTers have done to me! I'm becoming a beer snob(not that I mind)

The Lost Leaf is a very cool place.
It's a renovated hoime in the "First Friday" arts district next to some other homes that are residences/galleries. There is very little to indicate that it is a beer/wine bar.

Inside, the place is dark and cozy. There are several art piece on the wall for sale.
Later in the evening, there was live music that was a cross between techno and middle eastern music. It was easy to hold a conversation even with the music going on.

The owner found out that we were all homebrewers and bought us a round. Very cool.

I had a good time as well - some pretty tasty beers. Brandon O, very nice to meet you and your wife.

I have to admit I have no clue what I was babbling about with separate tastes and whatever else might have come spewing from my mouth - pretty sure you guys have picked up on my "gift of gab" - or it could have been the lack of dinner - one of the two....

Beerthirty & olllllo, I happen to mention stainless welding to my boss, and he might have a few guys he knows around the valley - I'll let ya know what he says. If he knows people, I'll let ya know.
