However, last week's Brewsday Tuesday, if you haven't seen it already, is a pretty good one - an update on what's happening with New Orleans' only homebrew store, Brewstock. The original owner sold it to a couple of very nice guys. Read all about it here!
Columbus was a fun trip, full of beers from new local breweries like Columbus Brewing Company, Actual Brewing Company, Seventh Son, North High, Four Sting Brewing, Hoof Hearted Brewing, and Brothers Drake (actually a meadery). Cincinnati also has an amazing beer scene (much of it following in its German heritage, much like New Orleans) which I was able to get a glimpse of, as well as places in between like Jackie O's in Athens. The area was (and to some extent, still is) dominated by a large regional brewery called Great Lakes (in Cleveland), but new microbreweries have been popping up like toadstools over the last couple of years. Sound familiar?

But I must say, it's great to be back home, and to know I'll be in one place fro a while. Catch you soon!
