I recorded this cover of a great Portastatic song this morning. I don’t think I messed it up too much…
My friend Cooper and I have been making beer for a few years now. First we would do it in college just for fun to share with friends. Now that we live 170 miles away from each other, beer making has become an excuse for us to visit each other, and hang out.
For no other reason than for fun, and the mantra of “nothing ventured, nothing gained,” I entered our most recent beer (a Rye IPA) into the Brooklyn Wort home brewing competition. The drop off was at the bar a block from my apartment, and people seemed to like our most recent brew! So why not? Today I got the e-mail that we were one of 30 beers chosen to compete in the final round! If we win the people’s choice, we get to make beer at a brewery in Brooklyn for free, as well as some cash. If the critics choose us, we not only get money and to make beer, but we get to hold a party at this brewery for our friends and family. If we win, you’re invited.
Wish us luck, and thanks for encouraging us over the years to make some beer for you.
Jeff Buckley - Lover, You Should’ve Come Over
I read that yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Jeff Buckley’s “Grace.” This is an album that I haven’t really thought about in quite a few years, but like an old friend that you haven’t seen in a while, it was nice to catch up.
Have y’all seen the new Ryan Adams music video??
