What else? I started giving math lessons with a beer theme. There are surely some recent college grads among you that didn't really deserve your diplomas. Here are the First Grade and Second Grade lessons.
Beer Tasting Extravaganza 3 happened in August, with the Abraxas Edition. What a fun quarterly event! This time we sampled 22 really cool beers down in South Beach. Jealous?
Just three days later, Garrett Oliver was in town for a public tasting and book/bottle signing. I was supposed to have the opportunity to interview him beforehand, but that didn't quite fit the schedule. I did, however, get to ask 10-15 questions while his groupies (including me) hung around toward the end of the event.
I also took the Sam Adams Beer Lover's Choice Challenge, went to Pittsburgh empty-handed and came back with 12 new beers, and even reviewed a Colombian soda! I told you I was busy in August.
But most importantly, I drank some awesome beers!
