Greetings from the PNW
Hard to believe, but we’ve been home for two months! And as much fun as the road trip was, it’s been really nice to be able to sleep in the same bed for more than two consecutive nights. 😉 So what have we been up to now that we’re officially back in the PNW?
Hello, Again We might be stationary now, but we haven’t stopped our beer research! Since arriving home, we’ve been busy getting reacquainted with the Puget Sound and discovering all of the new breweries that have opened up (and revisiting some of our old friends). We’ve tasted wares from Ballard, South Park, and Bellingham—and have our eyes set on a ton more. Any suggestions for us?
Homebrewers Unite! We managed to get home in time for Homebrew Con 2018. In Portland, OR this year, we happily made our way down I-5 to join in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the conference and wishing Charlie Papazian a very happy retirement!
Attacking the "To Do" List We’re also slowly chipping away at our “to do” list. At the top of our list is wrapping up the business plan so we can officially start the process of making L&L a reality. While it’s been a good exercise formalizing our ideas on paper, honing down the text describing those ideas is proving to be a beast. But rest assured, we’re working on taming the beast so we can finalize the business plan sometime very soon(ish).
R&D Batches And in more delicious news, we’re now back up and brewing again. Our very first batch back in the PNW was brewed at Micro Homebrew during their Big Brew Day in July. (Many thanks to Tony and his crew for putting it on!) And with Big Brew Day under our belt, we’ll be brewing up some R&D batches (four to be exact) this weekend. Visit us on Instagram to see how our brew day goes and where our beer research adventures take us.
