Because you guys are such loyal readers, you already know that Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver will be making an appearance at MY Total Wine in Pembroke Pines on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 from 6:30 - 7:30. Yes, nerd, that's PM. It's not after your pre-dawn morning jog.
But as spectaculawesome as that event is, this just keeps getting better! Fellow local beer lover Tony K and I will have the opportunity to interview Garrett during the 30 minutes prior to his public appearance! Now that is punk rock! If you were not aware, I have a lot of experience doing interviews, and giving them too, but never in this type of situation. It's going to be very cool.
Guess who is behind setting all of this up? Yeah, good guess. It's that Ed Roberts guy again. He's so awesome! Oh and Rich Nowak from the Brooklyn Brewery is also an integral player. Both will be present during the interview (presumably in a double-role as moderators/bouncers). This is so exciting!
Now the fun part for you guys. Are there questions you'd like us to ask Garrett? Are you such in love with his Black Chocolate Stout that you'd marry it if Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi finally legalize beer-human unions? I would. Seriously, though, Garrett has written and spoken extensively about pairing beer with food, in addition to brewing one of the most kick-ass lineups of beers anywhere. You can certainly think of a few questions.
I actually promised Ed I'd shave, dress up and be on my best behavior. Shouldn't be a problem. But I want to be inquisitive and probing so tell me your questions. I am your guy! Don't vote for me for Florida governor. Just tell me what you'd like to know about Mr. Garrett Oliver! Comment Moderation is OFF. Don't be stupid, but don't be shy either!
