Default Drom John logo/labels

I started with says-it.com, and have switched to Photoshop since says-it.com has been mostly "forbidden." I use an horizontal oval to cover the horizontal bracket on swingtops.

My avatar is my logo.
The logo has been etched onto four mugs and four tulips.

My first brew back in 2009, was a Continental Light Lager from Patrick Baker's "The New Brewer's Handbook." It was picked as a random recipe from over 700 cookbooks. I was given the booklet in the early 90's by my father's classmate "Uncle Jack," a retired Army engineer who learn to brew while working for Aramco. I took the handbook to LHBS in Winston-Salem and starting loading beginner's equipment in a cart when I noticed the dozen's of imported beers and crafts. I put the equipment back on the shelves and left with about three cases of singles and a case of Anchor Christmas Ale. About 17 years later, choosing my next cooking recipe, random.org selected the handbook. Continental Light Lager went labeless.

I bought my two bucket setup and the first two brews from Xtreme Brewing because they had a 60-Minute clone.

My second brew was the Dogfish Head 60-Minute IPA. Tasted great, but I mishandled bottling so that I had teeth picking hops. I had to strain each pour. So I hit the internet and found Homebrewtalk, and learned about auto-siphons, Irish moss, says-it.com, and Austin Homebrew Supply.

My wife decides to encourage me, and announced that every other brew was SWMBO's choice. Meanwhile, when my step-daughters couldn't figure out what to get me for Christmas, my wife directed them to AHS, and helped them select two kits that showed up under the tree. I've been an AHS fan since. First up, AHS Dry Stout.

The second of the stepdaughters kits was AHS Ordinary Bitter, and the following label has the first of several ignorant misspellings.

And then it was the first of the SWMBO choices and the main reason we went to AHS. AHS seemed to be the best source for her favorite beer, too hard to get in Georgia, Redhook Double Dark Stout, and another misspelling.

So, since I had the Dry Stout and the Ordinary Bitter, SWMBO got two in a row, AHS Lemongrass Ginger Ale.

Hmm, we just finished the Lemongrass Ginger Ale before the Belhaven. The Belhaven was brewed first.
So, then I brewed the AHS clone of my go to porter since the early 90s, Anchor Porter.

I have quaffed about 200 Berghoff Darks at The Berghoff in Chicago, mostly 1977-1981, and a few after, and a handful at O'Hare. I hadn't yet brewed a dark lager, and AHS had a clone. This was a MS Paint job.
