The Mad Scientists At Work

July 17th, at The Brew On Broadway (BoB)

After the flurry of activity over the last two weeks for GABF, Sam and I were going to brew a 1-bbl (barrel) batch on Sunday. The plan was an Old English Ale, but we were not given the brewing instructions. After deliberation and finally getting a hold of Paul, Sam, Zach, and I were given free reign (well almost, no saisons) to brew what we wanted. (With trumpets sounding) The Two Men and a Brewer Pale Ale was born.

Game Time at the BoB

July 12th, at The Brew On Broadway (The BoB):

Intensity grew this last week at the BoB. We brewed the beers they were entering into the Great American Beer Fest (GABF) this year. The brew day started with their Social Club Coffee Milk Stout, then went on to their Tramway Rye Extra Pale Ale, and ended with their Cinderella Twin IIPA. We double-checked everything and ensured that sanitation was at an all-time high.

Brewmaster in Training – Mad Scientist at Work

May 22nd, at The Brew On Broadway (BoB)

This was a big day for me personally at The BoB. Paul (the owner) wanted me to experiment with the water chemistry. I had been sharing with both he and Sam (Brewmaster) what I had learned at Regis University about how water chemistry affects beer.

We brewed their Eagle Rock Pale Ale as a small batch (1-barrel). The recipe was scaled-down from their 7-barrel offering. We tested the water to see where our Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfate, and Alkalinity levels were.
