Did anyone ever see the movie “Marley and Me?” with Jennifer Aniston and a super cute Owen Wilson? There is a monologue, used to suggest lots of time passing, where Owen Wilson rattles off a list of things he’s done, mostly talking about writing, mostly talking about writing about his dog Marley.
That’s how I feel right now. The last few weeks are a blur that sounds something like this every time I sit down to try and fill you all in on what’s been happening. Woke up early, went to work, worked on brewing, taproom, events. Went home, ate cold pizza. Woke up early, went to work, served our beer to the masses. Went home, ate cold pizza, said hello to J around 5am. Launched Greenbush in Kalamazoo at amazing event with Kalamazoo Beer Exchange. Woke up early, attended sick event at Green City Market where people fell in love with Greenbush. Drank Bourbon Bomb from David Burke’s Primehouse that rocked my world. Went home, passed out. Went camping, invented s’moreo, went back to work. Woke up early…
You get the picture. At least I hope you do. Along the way I’ve brewed my very first beer, Spicy Peaches, which will hopefully hit the glass this weekend so I can tell you all about it. Brewed with the first local Michigan peaches and Sriracha. I haven’t tasted the final product yet, but I have high hopes.
This weekend brings another dinner, this time a great farm dinner/fundraiser with Stephanie Izard and Seedling Farms. It also brings some more bartending, working, and laughing at how crazy and yet awesome my life seems most days.
Steph is then brewing with us on Monday. I’ll post deets.
