As the week begins here at the Farmstead, we welcome Søren Parker Wagner (my replacement/trainee at Nørrebro) the same day that Peter Andersen flies back to Denmark. From here on out, it is just Owen and I… and whatever guests happen to pass through. It is clear that Anders Kissmeyer will return in the fall – for the release of his Smoked Baltic Porter guest brew. Perhaps we’ll find the time to brew yet another batch… as this one is just SO damn good that I can’t imagine being without it. Still void of names for the collaborative beers… open to ideas.
Lastly, before I return to the brewery for kegging/washing kegs for the morning, you should all check out the following blog entry, about our brewery, written by my friend Matt at Farmstead/La Laiterie. We’re hosting a beer dinner together on November 14th at his place in Providence, RI – book ahead, soon, because it will sell out fast (we’re breaking out *all* of the greatness for this one… the only keg of smoked baltic porter to leave the brewery, for example… the debut of our barrel aged holiday ale, perhaps the Cigar City Collab…etc). Matt runs one of the best cheese shops in America and is a James Beard award winning chef… check it out!
That’s all for now – time to visualize…
