Wow, I haven’t updated the local scene since September!?  Bad me.  I was crazy busy the entire month of October with friends in town for the GABF (Dick and Mike from BigFoamyHead.com), then back in town for the Gorilla Run (Dick and his wife Christy). 

Boulder Beer Company is off of summer “vaykay” and have restarted the Beer School.  Novembers curriculum included a presentation by Brewmaster David Zuckerman and “Sales Tool” Dan Weitz.  We dove into a few Winter Seasonals including Sam Adams Winter Seasonal, Sierra Nevada’s Celebration Ale 2008, Full Sail Wassail, ODell’s Extra Special Red and the perennial favorites Never Summer and Killer Penguin from BBC.  It was mostly a light hearted evening the day before the Presidential election.  Thankfully no politics were brought up, except for the politics of beer!  I might be alone on this, but I really like spiced beers during the winter months.  None of these beers had much by wayof spices, although I did get a little bit of cinnamon in one beer (it turned out it wasn’t an additive).

Upcoming Posts: my brewery upgrade over the summer.
