Some of you may have noticed that I have been a little scarce on the blog over the last month or so. That is because I had a convergence of a most unfortunate type at work. Five projects that were all going along on their own just fine, decided to all have deadlines within one month of each other. It is easy to keep all the balls in the air, but catching them all at once is a bigger challenge. So I have been working a lot and trying to keep up at least some presence on the blog. This has meant a lot of late nights and weekends sitting right here typing in my 10′x10′ cell they call an office! …
Well this weekend I will be back here working right through like it is any other weekday, which unfortunately means not a lot of drinking for me. As a matter of fact I have had a couple of things that were interesting, including a Barleywine with a hoppy spin to it from Great Divide, and an Old Whiskey River, Kentucky Straight Bourbon that was pretty tasty too, but I’ve been so busy at work, I haven’t had time to write them up and get them posted on the blog.
This weekend, I’ll be lucky to get a beer or two in me between driving the 40 miles to work each way and sitting here working for 10 hours a day this weekend. If I’m lucky I’ll get to a couple of interesting brews. I have a couple waiting for me like a great Barleywine from Midnight Sun, and a Winterwarmer from O Nogne that is aged in Islay Scotch Barrels. So good things available, just no time to unwind and enjoy.
How about you? I’m hoping that you aren’t in the same boat as me, and can actually spend some time at home with friends or family and relax with a favorite beverage. Does anyone have any holiday parties they are going to? What will you be drinking? As usual, let us know in the comments, and have a great weekend everyone…I won’t.
