Boys in Short Shorts

It’s been a busy week – that seems to be a new tradition. On Wednesday I had a beer and food pairing event at Sagebrush Cantina in Calabases that I designed and had to get there early to set up. I happened to get there just a tad too early and used the extra time as an excuse to go visit Pedaler’s Fork across the street.
AM I was a tad too late for breakfast…
am1 And just hungry enough that I might be able to finish a piece or two of flatbread.
am5 Smoked chicken and shishito peppers! Smokey and sweet.

The crew from Lagunitas happened to show up as I was enjoying my first bite. They ordered some fancy whiskey for themselves…
am7 …and a shot of Lagunitas Sucks for me. I had a speech to give so I was behaving.
am2 Behaving is very difficult with Pedaler’s selection of 32 taps, but I stood my ground.
am6 Except for a small sip of the fizz that mixologist Thor was trying out. Thor (his actual name is Tor, but I can’t not call him Thor) also happens to be a Chiver!
am4 In exchange for letting me call him Thor, I gave him a Bill F***ing Murray shirt. Good trade, in my opinion.
am3 I enjoyed the last of the sunlight in the rustic restaurant before going back across the street to set up.
am8 Beer. Check.
am9 Other beer. Check.
am11 More beer. Check.
am12 am13 am14 am15 am16 You get the idea. Check.
am10 All in all we had about eighteen different breweries attend with about thirty two beers. I’d spent the past week putting together and finalizing all of the food pairings. Unfortunately for you guys, I got too busy hosting and giving speeches (aka a single two-minute speech about how to taste the beer before I ran to Lagunitas and told them to “beer me” whilst holding out my four ounce glass for a fill) and was unable to take pictures of the actual prepared food. The event and pairing was well-received by all, and brewery tours were promised by reps. It was a good evening for me!

In other news, I’m slowly adding to my beer/brewery photography portfolio. I apologize in advance if these explicit photographs offend anybody.

Again, I’m so sorry.
