The past couple of weeks

I see it's been a while since I posted anything of substance. (As if I ever post anything of substance.) So here's a quick look at what's been going on:

  • Wednesday, January 30: Filled kegs. Cleaned a bright beer tank. Drove to Omaha and got four Botox shots in my back.

  • Thursday, January 31: Cleaned kegs. Filtered the Bugeater Brown Ale.

  • Friday, February 1: Did the state and federal monthly excise taxes.

  • Monday, February 4: Cleaned the draft lines. Took the filter apart and ordered new seals for it.

  • Tuesday, February 5: Drove out to North Platte (with a lunch stop at Thunderhead in Kearney) for the Governor's Agri/Eco-Tourism Workshop.

    Met a farmer from Linwood who found some wild hops growing on his property; he's interested in cultivating hops for sale to Nebraska breweries. Drank entirely too much beer with Zac and Trevor.

  • Wednesday, February 6: Drove home from North Platte (with a lunch stop at Thunderhead in Kearney).

  • Thursday, February 7: Filled kegs. Continued recovering from the North Platte trip.

  • Friday, February 8: Picked up Paris at the Omaha airport. Since her flight didn't arrive until 8:45pm, there was time for stops at Upstream Legacy, Nebraska Brewing, Jaipur, Huber Haus, and Max & Joe's before heading to the airport. Then Paris decided she was thirsty, so we stopped by Max & Joe's again on the way home.

  • Sunday, February 10: Took Paris back to Omaha, with a dinner stop at Nebraska Brewing.

  • Monday, February 11: Cleaned the draft lines. Transferred eight barrels of Tin Lizzie Hefeweizen to the cellar.

  • Tuesday, February 12: Cleaned a fermenter. Made 14 barrels of root beer.

  • Wednesday, February 13: Worked out a schedule for the next couple of weeks. Cleaned the picnic taps. Cleaned some growlers.

So that's that. Here are some upcoming events:
