Sinkhole revealed as 150-year-old beer cave

The Iowa Department of Transportation inspector believed he had found a hazardous sinkhole on discovering and 18-inch wide void near a busy interstate, as reported by The Gazette.

However officials have since offered a far more intriguing explanation, believing the hole to lead to a series of beer caves stretching some 30 feet below the ground.

Staff from the University of Iowa’s archeology department have so far identified three-to-four underground limestone caverns using ground penetrating radar at the site of the hole, with archaeologists suspecting the cavernous underground void to belong to the former Eagle Brewing Company/Magnus Brewing Company, built in 1859. Read more.

My first ever paid brewday...

Yeah, I fucking nailed it.

Mother fucking nailed it. I think the head brewer wants me to work for him. I pointed out problems and fixed them, and while the batch was still a little off (we were a little under gravity), it would have been even further if it weren’t for me.

I just might have this goddamned job. I hope so, at least. I’ve already passed a bunch of hurdles, and it turns out the assignment they gave me, to alter a beer based on hop changes, I changed it almost exactly the way he would have. He said that. A few small changes, but he understood why I would have done it the way I did, and said it wasn’t wrong, just different. As in, I got that shit right too.

So things are looking up here. With a little luck, next stop is a pro brewing gig.

Which will probably mean less time devoted to homebrewing, and probably less time and posting from this blog. But I’m sure you folks will survive.
