It is true. August has been a slow month here at FBB. With cabinets of beer that needed to be consumed, a Belgian white that kept on fermenting, and some apprehension about beginning what we hope is a highly successful first seasonal ale, our progress forward slowed.
The good news is we are ready to pick up the pace again. This Friday we are hosting another fiesta at the Hayes House. While this won't be the tasting party many of you have been waiting for, we have decided to crack open some bottles from the archives. Thinking back to our many brews brings back some great memories.
Our Red Ale series has been quite a hit as we tried our own hand at a brewery genre favorite. The Marzen was a pleasant surprise that still ranks in the top three for many, including myself. The Pale Ale was a make-shift half batch that surpassed expectations. And the stout was the strongest and darkest beer we've brewed that seems to get better with time.
Overall these last 4 months have been highly educational and rewarding. We've produced some great beer and some not very great beer. Most of all we've shared these drinks, and many others, with friends. Thanks for the support. -jk
