A little venting on a Thursday...

There is a bearded, shave headed, Western shirt wearing hipster here at work that does something… god knows what, for our company’s web department. He walks by my office every day making an effort to say hi to everyone else in the surrounding area but I feel he purposely avoids any contact with me.  This guy, who we’ll now address as “Craft Brew,” obviously has some kind of hang-up about me being obviously older and not having time to deal with his discussions of gluten-free, organic, sustainably harvested apple butter at the “hippest” hotspot downtown or his adventures in riding his recumbent bike while getting his growler filled at the coolest brew pub in Federal Hill.  He obviously feels threatened that I have a consistent individual personality where I am who I am and work is not the place where I espouse my viewpoints on every aspect of who I am and what I’m about.  Maybe he feels that my obvious mid-century appreciation, reflected in my clothing and choice of hairstyle are not the be-all and end-all of what I am and he simply can’t figure me out. So to you Craft Brew and the rest of the hip urban-dwelling youngsters who I have the “pleasure” of dealing with on a daily basis I have this to say… keep on wondering.

Met my wife downtown for her lunch break. She happens to work literally right next door to Karl Strauss Brewery so we ended up there. Haven’t been there in 10 or so years but we sat in practically the same spot we did before. I will say that both the food AND the beer have improved greatly, I ended up getting a Tower 20 IIPA and the big beer burger to go with. All were delicious. We’ll be back for sure. (especially for the special growler fill deals)

i have so much to tell you.

should i start with the good news or the sad news?

the sad shadows over the happy, so let’s do that now. my manager/very close friend told me this morning about an old coworker of hers with whom she worked with for ten years, a beloved bartender from a local craft beer bar, was found dead the morning after st. patrick’s day. they ruled it as an aneurysm, but apparently heavy drinking the day before likely played a part. she was in her thirties, with so much ahead of her. it has sent a shock wave through a very tight-knit community. this news rattled me to my core. i feel terribly for those who knew & loved her. & it reminds you to put into perspective how fucking precious life is.

the good news is i was offered a job at new england brewing company. it started as an offer to help in the tasting room, filling growlers. they said that since they’ve just expanded, they are even busier than they anticipated, & that my beer knowledge would be a huge plus since a lot of people who come in obviously want to chat about the beer. but my current boss, after flipping the brewery owner some fake sass for trying to steal his employees, actually somehow magically leveraged it into an apprenticeship of sorts, with more of a focus on the eventuality of brewing, because he is a fucking amazing human being. without question, he is the best boss i’ve ever had in my life. i find out more about my schedule & stuff next week, but, yeah, it’s happening. my favorite fucking local brewery that i’ve been madly in love with for years. i’m beyond blown away.

so, as you can imagine, i am awash with emotions. such is life.

hug the ones you love.

Anniversary weekend. Just a few small things like pizza/beer/wearing my reception wedding dress yesterday, since we’ll really be celebrating in 2 weeks during our Norway trip! (Also for that pickleback we used our homemade brine leftover from all the dilly beans we had canned & ate!)
I havent had seafood since 2011 (or meat since 2009) but I decided this weekend to start eating oysters again- my town had an oyster fest & I couldnt refuse! Maybe Ill eat mussels too? Idk, just nothing with a face- you’re lucky lobsters, even though you taste so good.
Hayes gave me a necklace shaped like state of NH carved out of wood- the modern wedding anniversary gift for 6yrs of marriage. I gave him the traditional gift of stainless steel in the form of a growler filled with local octoberfest beer!
Also I just love that family photo someone took of us at our wedding 6yrs ago..

Nothing says football season like a growler fill of baseball beer — @alesmithbrewing San Diego Pale Ale 394!
