The Past Week's Beer Log (Illustrated), and Brotherly Beer

Not a bad week (so far). All of the larger bottles shown above were shared with my brother; I can't think of a better way to enjoy a good beer. (I think we both liked the Sierra Nevada 30th Anniversary best.)

If I could start all over, I'd spend, say, 10-15 years learning how to brew beer and brew it well. Once I had achieved a proper level of brewing expertise and expanded the scale of my production just a bit, I'd try to talk my brother into partnering with me in setting up our own brewpub. 

It's a pipe dream, especially since (1) I have no restaurant experience other than working at the Starbucks-Lite at a local bookstore back in grad school, (2) my business acumen is on par with my restaurant experience, and (3) I've yet to even brew my first batch of beginner homebrew (though September still looks promising).

But it's fun to think about it.

"Acumen" is a great word. I need to use it. I will make it a goal.

Thanks, dude. I must confess, though, that I lifted the word--heck, the entire phrase business acumen--straight from REM's "Exhuming McCarthy."
