I was quoted in an article about tahe Green Growler in FEBRUARY.


There is going to be an inaugural meeting of the Norther Westchester Brewers Guild at the Birdsall House on February 13th from 6 to 8 PM. It is being started by a former workmate of mine, Liette, and a few others. I never joined a club before and I am looking forward to joining this one from the beginning! Come one, come all!


Follow the link to Members and click on the "JOIN SITE" Button. It's easy and free! I just want to know who is lurking around. Also, I probably could arrange free beer for my members when the time comes and I go "public". If that isn't enticing enough....

Sam Adams founder, Jim Koch, has been into micro-lending before it was chic, kinda like he was a craft-brewer before he was chic. I need to buy him a beer, and get a micro-loan! See this MSNBC interview:
