Just wanted to say happy Father's Day to all the HBT dads.

Sometimes it's tough, sometimes it's fun, but it's always rewarding and the most important job we do, bar none.

Pat yourselves on the back and crack a few cold ones.

Thanks BD and same to you and all the "Pops" out there. My SWMBO bought me four cornies for fathers day, my daughters are planning to grill dinner for me Sunday and I have a fresh 10-gallon batch of my Nierra Sevada I just tapped for the back yard BBQ...

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, try to keep your sanity, I know that I am having a tough time of it right now. but I know that the light is shining up at the end of the tunnel somewhere!

I get to go to a brewery (The Oaken Barrel) for Fathers Day dinner. I haven't been there yet so if any on has any recomendations on food or beers to try let me know. I have had a couple of their beers already but SWMBO said that she wanted to take me there for dinner and maybe get a tour if we can.

I've got grain mashing in the tun. SWMBO is at work til 4. The kids (19 & 15) will likely sleep til noon. It's 8:45 AM and I just cracked my first brew of the day. Ahhh, life is good! Happy fathers day to all whom it may concern.
If I'd known I was gonna live this long, I'd have taken better care of myself!

It's also the wife's birthday, so I'm letting her sleep in while I watch the kidling and get my mash going. She sleeps, I brew, Cassie watched Teletubbies and colors, we're all happy.

Looks like I'm two degrees high on the Belgian; I can live with that, I'm going to try a 90-minute mash for extra fermentability.

Hapy Father's day to all my fellow HBT dads! I got an early start,as the 1-wk-old had me up from midnight-2 am.

Took the dog for a long walk with the 2-yr old this morning, may take him to the pool later today. While the kids are this young, brewing is still something that keeps me away from rather than something I can share with them...might brew tonight after everyone's in bed (got the starter going last night while the baby had me up
