In May, I took over for Joe Shelerud as host of craft beer podcast, MicroBrewr. I had already been working nearly a year on a business plan to start a brewery. A podcast seemed like too much to add on, and it seemed unrelated to my main objective: start a progressive craft brewery in Monterey. It’s not a stretch from what I already had going on. Here’s why I’m doing it.
A couple weeks ago I took the Responsible Beverage Service Training (RBS) class. The class covered the effects of alcohol on the body, detecting underage customers, and server responsibility. So now I have the Responsible Beverage Service Training certificate! Here are some things I learned from the class.
Last time I wrote about running in Bay to Breakers. In that post, I mentioned that the day before, my friend Jon and I had played roadies for our mutual friend Nick, and his band Nova Albion. I did agree to be sober driver for the band, but that was only before I found out they would be performing at the San Francisco Giants Brewfest. I did get to enjoy some tastes and remain sober (didn’t need to drive until much later, after the game). For me, the highlight was Anchor Brewing’s California Lager. It got me to thinking about the future of lagers in the craft beer world and beyond.
