Yes Virginia... it is possible to drink too much beer

Right now I'm in the midst of what some would call Beer Heaven and others would call Beer Hell. Since Saturday we've:
  • Attended the third annual Buses at the Brewery at Bristol Brewing.
  • Hit up the grand opening of Colorado Mountain Brewery on the north side of Colorado Springs. Actually, this turned into a 9 hour marathon of sampling the liquid and solid warez of this new brewpub.  
  • Had two lengthy Beer Tap TV filming sessions which included filming two new episodes of Taste Buds (that you'll see in the following weeks), this week's Beer Buzz (#80, Beers with Kyle) which is live right now and could possibly be our best episode yet. AND next week's episode (which utilizes our new green screen extensively).  Oh, and we drank.  A lot. 
  • Hung out with the monkeys at Moonlight on the Mountain at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo while simultaneously celebrating International Beer Day.

Now, if my body will stop flipping me the finger I'm going to try and get out to the Air Force Academy tomorrow for a Toast to the Host.  It's a stretch though... my body is really rebelling against me.  It's doing so by shutting down my liver and... making me fat(ter).

Bastard.  I'll show it!

If that weren't enough... next weekend (August 13 - 15) is this year's Craft Lager Festival in Manitou.  If you've never been, you need to.  It's a hoot.  Not only will we be out there for Saturday and Sunday's festivities, but I'll be giving the keynote address at the Craft Lager School on Friday afternoon.  Should be... interesting.  At least my buddy Zak Davis from Shmaltz Brewing will be presenting before me.  Those Jewish beer making nutters are crazier then I am!

Update on the next Brewvie Review.  Last time we met I made a list of movies to pick from. Some smart ass said all of them.  So that's what I'm doing.  HOWEVER... I just watched Kick-Ass, and because that has become my current Favorite Movie Of All Time! I will in fact be doing a review of that very soon.  And for any of you who've been reading this column for any length of time know damn well that "very soon" could be as "soon" as three months.

I'm out.
