Thanks everybody, I really appreciate the kind words. It's been one of the worst days I've had in a long time, but sitting at the bar with my dad having a few beers and talking everything over.

I can't wait more than ever to get this thing done and have some good times.

Make a recipe in his honor. Maybe a Bernese Mountain Stout. Big and Sweet, probably just like he was.

My condolences.
when pets are around that long, they are family... and in many cases, incredibly close to children.

and though it sucks, death is just another part of the life. remember the good times that you had with the lil guy/gal.

Sorry to hear about your loss. Me and SWMBO were just discussing our eldest dog last night about having to put her down some day. She is getting old, but still should have several years left. You're loss is a reminder to enjoy her more while she's around. Again sorry for your loss, they're "just dogs", but they're family.
Definite commemorative brew is in order for sure.

Thanks man! I can't believe you were still up at 2:45... i was passed out on mikes floorby 2:15, hahaha. Like I said I'll keep in touch with you and get you some kegs to fill up that second fridge. We should plan for a brew day the week of the 5-year.

I think that would be awesome and makes perfect sense. Maybe some swiss influence somehow in the beer.

He was basically my brother and will always be missed.

Definitely cherish every day you can with them. I wasn't around as much for him recently (being down in CT and him being here in MA) but it didn't hurt any less.

Tomorrow the gf and I will be finishing up the priming on the bad boy and keep the momentum going.

Sorry to hear about your loss, its always hard, but they are such a part of the family, especially when you've had them since you were young. Our newfy that we had to put down a few years ago was in the family since I was 6 years old. I definitely like the idea of making a recipe in their honor

I can't believe I had gone so long without reading this thread. You're a God among men, sir. Also, I know how it felt to lose my childhood dog, so I'm really sorry.

Next summer I'd like to make a keezer, though probably on a slightly smaller scale, so your work's going to be invaluable to me.

I have one question about your keezer, have you found a place to get the tartan paneling from? Or are you just going to spray glue actual cloth to the sides?

All of the tartan is going to be painted by hand.
