I’m back! Happy New Year! Wait, is that right? Have I actually not reviewed a beer this year? Well, certainly I have drunk a ton of them, and that may be a part of why I am somewhat hazy on the question of my recent review history. I am sure you have all been very entertained by the NFL Playoffs, The Golden Globes, and ABC’s Working It.
I, too, have been busy. On January 15th, my wife and I (yes, I’m married– sorry, sir) welcomed our first child, Gwynn Abbott Milstead. While parenthood is wonderful, as they said it is, and the sleep deprivation terrible as they say it is, I must say I am so happy to report that my drinking has not been curbed nearly as much as I feared. And, so, as is my fortune, I continue to taste and test the best of the world of beer.
On that front, I am happy to announce another new arrival. This one is perhaps more anticipated than mine, at least amongst non-family circles. ‘Tis the birth of Golden Road Brewing‘s Hefeweizen cans.
