Drama during the Quest
The Sultan of Suds rise to power? Well, whatever you call it…This category is all about the dramatic bad news that happened since Dec 1, 2013
Cultivate seems to be in the winter mood. New year, New Brewer. And another year.
Also, in the Brew-News; Haymarket‘s Michigan store is supposed to open on January 17, 2017, Not holding my breath, but it’s getting close.
After linking to Haymarket, it seems their site states their Michigan store will open on January 12, 2017.
What’s going on at Cultivate?
Today is the last day of the “Quest” that begun over 2-1/2 years ago at Greenbush. I have, finally, come to the conclusion that this daily habit costs too much for me to sustain any further. I know, I’m a slow learner. I’ve really have enjoyed the entire experience and will miss my daily excursions to drink good beer with great people. I will be a regular Mug-Club-Monday attendee with the occasional week and/or weekend day tossed in to the mix. Special recognition has to be given to Sarah & Jessie DeCaro, who prepared a wonderful going away tribute. To Nicole Miller, who got me started on this crazy ride, and to the entire Greenbush staff, who I have come to know.
Where does the time go?
Two events going on this Saturday that I need to relate (I know that there’s a lot more, but these are close to me): Burn ‘Em Brewing is having their tasting/to go Grand Opening from 12-8 PM CDT. I’ll be there early to take part in the celebration.
Also, The Livery is having a bottle release of their Half Truth a Barrel-Aged, Black Rye IPA for $9.75/bottle. I hope that I can make it there after the Burn ‘Em party. Yikes!
I can’t believe that another week has passed with hardly a peep by me. Oh, well. It’s Monday so there’s nothing for me to fret, especially with 1/2 priced groups A & B beers for mug-club members at Greenbush.
WTF! Did I miss something? What happened to Spring? Looks like I’m going to have to find out; good thing it’s Mug-Club day at Tapistry (also at The Livery)! What the heck, I might as well make sure that I didn’t miss anything and go to Greenbush, too!
No, I haven’t fallen off the edge of the earth. Yes, I have ignored my blog for a week, but am still on track. And, Yes! It’s Monday, which is now not quite as good as in the past Let me explain, although there’s not much to be said. Yes, Greenbush still has specials for mug club members, half off groups A & B beers in case you didn’t remember. Tapistry, though, doesn’t have $2 TierIII beer on Mondays, starting last Monday. Bummer! But I’ll sojourn on the road to daily beer.
Come on by Greenbush to see Brittney (Mrs. Romeo) on her last day bartending. Speaking of last days, Blake Murray had his at Greenbush, yesterday. No worries, though, as he’ll be at Burn ‘Em Brewing full time, so you can see in there.
Just six days to the fund raiser for Laura Campbell. Don’t forget.
No excuses, I just forgot. Now, let’s move on to today, which happens to be the best day of the month. I know this is going to sound like a broken record, and that makes sense as I’m still stuck in the same groove. You know the drill: First I’ll meet with Bruce at Tapistry for $2 TierIII beers and lunch, then off to Greenbush for half-prices Groups A & B beers for Mug-Club members. Yes!
Speaking of Greenbush: There will be an event to raise funds for Laura Campbell, who has been dealing with cancer for the past 15 years. Recently she had been diagnosed and treated for a small cancerous tumor in her brain the result of metastasis. Here are the details, so far, that the organizer of this event, Emily Kamp, has told me.
“Hi Lloyd! Right now the plan is 4-close Tuesday, May 5th. Greenbush will be giving back 50% of our total sales to Scott & Laura to take a family trip to Disney. Posters should be going up Monday or Tuesday. Please help spread the word! Would love to get as many people to come into Greenbush that night as possible
“We’ll also be doing a raffle & money raised for tickets will also go to Scott/Laura… Possibly some t-shirts too”
If you can, please attend this event to help this wonderful woman attain a dream, or two and more.
If you look at today’s calendar date, you may be incredulous after seeing snow flurries this morning along with a cold northwest wind. I, of course, will not let a few snow flakes interfere with my endeavors.
