I think you will find most things at Beer Authority unchanged in a post-Rapture world. Oh, but we may have a few extra cars. Sweet.

What's coming up!

Alright everyone. Here is a little glimpse of what to expect in the near future.

1) Seattle Beer Week starts Thursday May 19 and miraculously goes til the 29th. I know it seems weird to have such a long week but, if you have ever hung out at a bar, you know how fast 2am comes. (Beer makes time go by fast) So, in beer weeks, 11 days is the equivalent of 7 "normal" days. Anyhoo, we will be pouring Washington beers all "week" and will have a list for you in our email. Expect it Wednesday.

2) Starting at 2pm on Saturday, May 29 we will be hosting Fish Brewing's Salmon Bake. The day looks to be sunny and Fish's own Burc will be there with bottles of vintage beer. Mike is compiling all the details for this event and will have them available shortly via our newsletter.

3) I am currently working on an interview with a local beer insider about Ninkasi and K&L. My informant shall remain unidentified for no particular reason. I can tell you this, he has vast knowledge of the industry and a lot to say. I am hoping to work with him on a regular basis. Heck, maybe I will eventually tell you his name so he can get the credit he deserves.

4) Sunday marks Firestone Walker's "Parabola" release. Be there by noon. Something super-cool and super-secret will be occurring. We are not allowed to talk about it. I'm not even supposed to think about it. Now I am just thinking about baseball. . . . .I'm thinking about that thing again. Damn!

Well, that is all I have for you at this time. I look forward to seeing your smiling faces down at the "Authority".

Cheers to you, Cheers to Beer and as the Irish say, "May ya be buried a full day before the necrophiliacs find out yer dead!"

Thursday Night 5pm Come on in!

We will be sampling American Brewing's "Ed's Red" and "Oatmeal Chocolate Mint Stout".

Here's a like to the brewery so you can get to know them a bit better.

Burton Union. Not a Portland Hippy-Band.

The boss wanted me to inform you all about Firestone's fermentation process. I'm not sure what is happening in the video, but the result seems to be beer. Great beer, really.

Since I am at the drinking and pouring side of the beer industry. Maybe you can tell me exactly what happens in this system.
