SWMBO decided a couple of years ago that she wanted to brew a beer herself for our annual holiday bash. I guided her through her first batch in 2005 when she made Brigadoon Scotch Ale.
In 2006 she brewed Choco Train Cocoa Bean Stout using fresh cocoa nibs from Theo Chocolate here in Seattle.
This year, she brewed her first AG brew! "RYE" ley's Rye IPA. Riley is our cat and is pictured on this year's label. This is the first year that these beers will be referred to as the "SWMBO" Series.
She is really enjoying the process and I hope she will brew more often throughout the year. I'm very fortunate to have a SWMBO that is very supportive of my addiction and really takes a keen interest in quality beer and the brewing process.
