One week ‘till the narcoleptic neitzche is ready! It’s a dark American-style porter, bitter and smooth. BAM.
It's a Fat Tire Night -
Fat Tire is the first “good” beer I ever had. As it seems is the case with many, I started with light American mass-produced sheisty beer (miller lite). But tonight’s a Fat Tire night. I thought about getting it in cans because the 6-packs of bottles were gone, but I couldn’t bring myself there yet. Although maybe I should try that soon - I took a chance on the Caldera and wasn’t disappointed. Basically what I’m saying is Fat Tire is great and it’s a Fat Tire Night.
One of my long-term goals is to start my own microbrewery/craft brewery. With that in mind, I’ve been gearing much of my work in business school (studying Entrepreneurship) to this idea. This weekend I’ll be presenting in a business plan competition in Louisville. If it goes well, I could receive a cash prize (which will go straight to that damn ol’ bootstrappin’ savings account). Word.
I’ve been working on brewing my own beer, and the first round is in the late phases of the process right now. It’s carbonating in bottles with bottling sugar (for those of you who don’t know - of which I counted myself one about a month ago - beer is flat before some sort of glucose reacts with the yeast and other ingredients to carbonate it). I was impatient and popped one earlier in the week, and either it was way too soon or I didn’t use enough bottling sugar. Other than that, it seemed like a good-tasting beer - haha maybe more like it tasted like a high-gravity beer that had been sitting open for several hours. Real malty. Easy on the malt next time I guess. I digress.
