To Do List


Today marks the end of my work week and tomorrow is¬†the start of the weekend. The fact that I neither work tomorrow nor Tuesday means that I get to spend it doing catch up for the blog and my beer stuff. So here’s my beer to do list. Since your all so interested right? ūüôā

Get a Deschutes Brewery Add On Here

I’ve talked to a couple breweries, and may talk to¬†some more people, about putting some adds on this blog. The catch is this wont in any way¬†pay the bills for this blog (although the hope is for this blog to pay for itself and eventually make a profit). Instead what they’re going to do is give me stuff to give to you guys in exchange for the add. Deschutes was the first to pony up. This brings me to my next item.

How do I give away a bunch of posters?

Deschutes came through with some framable quality¬†promo¬†posters for their beers and some stickers. When they first said they’d send me some posters to give away I was disappointed. I was really hoping to give you guys something like pint glasses or t-shirts. Truth is these posters are awesome and both myself and my family want some. Anyone with a bar at home needs one of these for their wall. The beers include Twilight, Black Butte, Mirror Pond, Jubelale 2008, and others. However tempting it may be to keep some of these I am giving them away though, so¬†if you have good ideas for¬†how to do this let me know in the comments.

Bottle my Uncle Fuggles Kinda Rye Ale

This is the longest name I’ve had for a beer, but it looks to be worth it. It’s spent the last to weeks sitting on lightly toasted oak chips and almost 2 ounces of Fuggles. I’ve been looking forward to this beer alot.

Get My Bike In For Repairs

My bike is falling apart. It’s been due for some maintenance and part replacement for a bit now but with the constant need to ride back and forth to Mt Angel that I had I could never find time to take in. Because of this the bike has been a single speed for two weeks thanks to a broken derailleur cable, the rear brakes are shot, and the rear tire gets more out of true daily. This doesn’t sound beer related, but I need my bike to get up to Silverton to see the guys at Seven Brides again. So there you have it, my bike getting fixed does have to do with beer.

Visit Pale Horse Brewery

This is Salem’s newest brewer in a long time and I haven’t even done my research on it. CapitolTapsfirst alerted me to their existence and I have now finaly¬†tried both beers they offer. I’m hoping talking with the brewers will shed some light on this operation and its future here in town. Oh here we go, another beer related reason to get my bike fixed.
