Home Brew Class

About a year ago while out for lunch I drove by the Culver City Home Brewing Supply, I made a mental note of it as I knew that eventually I would like to start home brewing.  Since then, I have been doing lots of beer drinking, but also done some reading on the subject of home brewing.  Months back I asked Steve to send me some links on home brewing as he’s one of the few people I know that home brews.  Having an 11 month old little girl means we spend lots of time at home and also because of the summer heat, this prompted me to learn how to home brew and I ended up signing up for a class at Culver City Home Brewing Supply. The class turned out to be very informative and seeing someone go through the steps made me realize it wasn’t a difficult process. I’m ready to jump into this thing feet first, I’ll be buying a kit in the next few days and I’ll have to decide what to brew for my first beer batch.  I’m looking forward to debuting the beer and making pizzas for the invites. During the class we got a chance to sample of the beer that’s been brewed during previous classes. Below you will see pictures I took during the class.

I LOVE YOU DETROIT!

In my previous entry I posted pictures of the shipment that came from Illinois and the one pictured below came from the beer state of Michigan; two shipments of the bottled good stuff in less than a month, jackpot! I’m a big Dodgers fan, but I have not paid attention this year and I’ve stayed away from visiting the stadium due to all the BS that’s been happening with the McCourts, that was until they played a series against Detroit for inter league play. I was watching and even listening to the games on the radio; made me realize how much I missed hearing Vin Scully’s voice as he calls the games for the boys in blue. So yes, I was watching and I once again became a devoted fan as I witnessed the Dodgers beat the Detroit Tigers two games out of a three, not a sweep, but all we needed was two W’s to get some precious cargo filled with Cervezas! This is the third consecutive year where the Los Angeles Dodgers have beat the Detroit Tigers and I get to enjoy some beer; I raise my glass filled with beer to Detroit! Below you can see what beers the great Maestro Steve sent.

They made sure I knew it was from Detroit.

These boobs have been through a lot!

Always use protection.

Have you had any of these?
