Midnight Sun is pretty good stuff. They took a Gold medal at GABF for the Specialty Beer Category I believe.

Sucks you may have to quit so soon... They seem to have positions available every few months so they're probably use to seeing people go :P Have you started yet? What have you been doing/learning to do?

I don't start until January 2nd

But yeah, Midnight Sun has some great stuff. I would have liked to try their Imperial Chocolate Pumpkin Porter

Inspired by this thread and general disdain towards my boss, I sent an e-mail to Goose Island and got a quick reply requesting a resume. I might play along and send one out just to see where it takes me.

Might as well inquire at The Ram while you're at it!

Tough circumstance, fightguy! What a situation to be in.

Marketing side, not brewing side. I'm not looking to get grain under my nails but I will risk a paper-cut.

By the way, I'm renting House #1. Lease starts in a week.

Sorry man, but you get kudos for supporting the SWMBO and her career.

It really wasn't even a question. She has devoted the past 5 years of her life to preparing herself for this opportunity, so we can't pass this up. Hopefully I can find another brewery to work at wherever we end up. As of right now, we are moving to Omaha, Nebraska but she has an interview at the University of Arizona on Jan 8th and another interview at the University of Washington on the 21st of January. We really hope that she gets in either at UW or Oregon Health Science University since we are both from Oregon (plus the beer scene there is the best anywhere).

If you guys could keep us in your prayers we would greatly appreciate it.
