The Quest Continues…Drinking beer one day at a time

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

It looks like we will have a new, and legal, craft-beer drinker today. Happy Birthday to Matthew Case! May you have a long and enjoyable life to enjoy the fruits of some many gifted craft brewers!

Can’t forget this, too. May everyone have a happy and a fully rounded PI day!


Not much going on in my neck of the woods, although there is Wurst Wednesday going on at Tapistry today. Also The Livery, as well as Tapisry, have Team Trivia going on tonight. Good beer, games and food, it doesn’t get better than that!

Does this beer make me look fat?


Eight Hundred would be excellent tally if it were my average in a bowling series; how impressive it is with going to brew pubs, especially Greenbush, since that’s where it all started, I don’t know.

One thing I do know is that Debbie and I were spared a slow and feeble Sunday morning, which works out to make things that much better for the day.

See you all at Greenbush and Tapistry!


This could be really scary; Debbie and I are meeting with Matt, Angie, Kevin and Pat starting at Greenbush and ending up who-knows-where. You never know what kind of mischief we will be up to this afternoon.


A little bit more information about the canning news at Tapistry that I had mentioned in yesterday’s post. Nate, Tapistry’s head brewer, told me that they’ll be brewing 30 barrel batches of both Mr. Orange & Reactor in the next couple of weeks with canning to take place by the first week in April. Here’s hoping that they can stay on schedule.

I went on a little road trip this morning to Michigan City in search of some 4 packs of Burn ‘Em brew. I have had good fortune in the past with Trail Creek Liquors, so there is where I went. The last time I made this same trip Trail Creek had opened at 10 am EST, so I timed my adventure so I would get there about then. Well, I got there a 10 minutes before 10 to find that they were not only closed, but didn’t open until 11am. Crap! So I looked up their mother store King Richards Liquors which, according to what I could find on the internet, opened at 10 am. I arrived a few minutes late at the second stop only to find a delivery driver waiting for them to open at 10 am, so I waited. And waited, and waited some more. I waited until 10:45 am and still no one to open the store had arrived. The delivery driver, now joined by another delivery truck and driver, were still waiting when I left. Long story short, I didn’t come home with any Burn ‘Em, or any others’ beer. Bummer!


Mondays are not going to be the same at Greenbush without Lindsey. Don’t be a stranger, Lindsey!

It seems that March is coming in like a lion, which seems obvious since it’s so freaking cold outside with a foot or more of snow covering the ground. It’ll be a while before the lawnmower is brought out to replace the snow blower. So, it must be getting close to the time I need to go and get a beer.
