Quick Hit Friday

Drinking a NOLA Brewing Rebirth Pale Ale while watching the Roots of Music band,
which will be receiving a portion of the proceeds of the beer.

I'm heading to Shreveport today to check out Great Raft and Red River Brewing, but before I go, a few things to share:

Beer School with Mary Wiles

Note from Nora: Tom's back with a report from the Brooklyn MASH "Beer School" event with Brooklyn Brewing's Technical Director Mary Wiles. I'll be providing a wrap up of the rest of the events I attended in the next couple of days.

Mary Wiles with David Blossman, Mark Burlet, Steve Hindy, and Kirk Coco

When she worked for Anheuser-Busch, Mary Wiles, now Technical Director at Brooklyn Brewery, was responsible for Bud Light Lime, but she asks people not to hold that against her. On April 2nd, 2014, she held court in the upstairs bar at the Avenue Pub to share her extensive knowledge of brewing with anyone who wanted to listen. As is typically the case at any craft beer event, there were plenty of people interested in learning more about beer. Beer geeks seem to have an almost exhausting thirst for information.
