Cooper River Bridge Run > Furthur

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

The Cooper river Bridge Run falls on April 2nd this year, the same day that Furthur is playing the North Charleston Coliseum.  I’ll be running the race and then hosting my first annual Bridge-Brunch-Beer party before the show.  Opportunities like this don’t come to Charleston too often.  Lemme know if you’re in.

The Mill House in Greenwood, SC will be hosting a Ommegang beer dinner this upcoming Monday, March 14th.  The line up of beers is great.  They will be featuring six courses to be paired with different beers from the Ommegang portfolio.  I’ll be on hand to talk about the beers, the brewery, and the foods being paired.  These are the beers:

Henepin – Rare VOS – Tripel Perfection

Cup o Kyndness – Chocolate Indulgence – Zuur

Mikkeller 1000 IBU

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

I just picked up a growler of Mikkeller 1000 IBU from CBX.  I’ve had it in a 375mL bottle before but never a half gallon jug.  If anyone reading this knows me, I can’t sit and drink this one solo.  It’s in the refrigerator.  First person to ask if I still have it, I’ll pop it with.  Not before noon though.  Better yet, not before 3.
