I tapped the St. Patrick's Day Stout today. It was smooth, dry, creamy, and delicious. The batch is ready for the exclusive invitation-only Lá Fhéile Pádraig that FSB attends here in the State of Jefferson. I would tell you the particulars of this particular festival, but then I'd have to kill you. Nonetheless, I'll think of you, kind readers, when I'm slaking my thirst with my stout.
Today is also the start of a new adventure here at FSB--I'm going to plant hops! I placed an order with Freshops for three rhizomes: Cascade, Nugget, and Magnum. They should be here in a week or so and they will be in the ground right around the Vernal Equinox!
Wish me luck.
Beware the Ides, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!
