    Hey Kids, So its that time again, time for the planning, the BS-ing and the breathless anticipation that leads up to Masstoberfest. Saturday, September 16, 2017 is the big day. It was 11 years ago when three guys came over to my house to learn how to do an all grain brew. It was a freezing...

    The Kinder, Gentler, Kumbaya singing, Can't We All Get Along Football Civil Discourse

    Oh my. I feel so bad for the Seahawks and their legion of diehard fans. That was such a well played game both teams deserved to win. Can we petition the league to make them co-champions? What about trophies? Do they get trophies? Because they should. What about ice cream? Did Coach...

    Masstoberfest 2014

    Well it's getting to be that time of year again, time to start prepping for Masstoberfest. "What is Masstoberfest?" you ask. Actually, you shouldn't ask that 'cause we're all going to wonder what rock you've been hiding under. Masstoberfest started over 8 years ago when I invited a...

    The hopefully not obnoxious wood fired brick oven build thread

    So last spring I opened up my big mouth and promised the lovely Alice a patio for her birthday. Well, I've got 54 year old knees and and a nephew who owns a landscape company and needs to keep his crew busy so the choice was clear. We decided to wait till the fall when his schedule slowed...

    De Ronde de van Vlaanderen

    De Ronde de van Vlaanderen is one of the European bike races, sort of like the Tour de France only instead of it being a month long event, its a single day race through the Belgian Flanders countryside. It just so happens that it goes through some of the best beer producing regions in the...

    Cold Smoked Salmon and Gouda

    So I'm brewing yesterday with Spawn #1 and friends and I'm smoking some ribs. And I get the idea that I'll smoke some salmon at the same time. But I want to cold smoke the salmon. What to do, what to do? I think I McGyver-ed quite the nice solution. First, the ribs... Next, the...

    The Dysfunctional-Palooza Obnoxious Masshole BS Thread

    In an effort to maybe keep a thread or two sorta kinda on track I thought I would start our own Masshole 'Tap Room-like' Thread. Now I know it won't be easy for Brian to restrict his obnoxiousness to a single thread nor do I expect to confine myself to this singular romper room but let's...

    Masstoberfest FAQ Page

    OK, since no one wants to read thru 20 pages of the Masstoberfest thread, and I don't blame you, I decided that the easiest way to avoid having to answer the same questions over and over is to do this. 1. When is the party? Saturday October 16. The day after tomorrow. 2. What time...

    My guitar teacher thinks I'm the village idiot.

    So since I was 18 I've wanted to learn to play the guitar but I never got around to it. So a couple of months ago I was at the dive shop getting tanks filled and there is a music store next door. I load the tanks in the truck and walk into the music store and walk out 20 minutes later with a...
