Playing it cool for now…

First, I just want to apologize for not posting sooner.  I finished a round of beer training for 10 awesome students, some of whom wrote for their Certified Cicerone® in July.  If you want a gander at all the beer we tasted, check this out:   Sorry about the lighting…

During the time between that, I’ve been designing and purchasing the kitchen for the soon to be opened Lansdowne Brewery, @ 303 Lansdowne Ave.  Currently the space itself is still under renovation, which in the meantime I’m menu developing, and basically getting everything together.  We still have no official opening date yet, but stay tuned because this are happening FAST.

Also the BJCP has completely revamped and updated itself, expanding to include just about every category you could possibly imagine.  I contacted Cicerone® offices, and they have informed me that no change to any of the syllabus’s will be made until after 2015.  I seriously wonder how things will differ, and how much new information will have to be incorporated.  Lets just say I’ll be holding my breath.  

So, in the meantime, I will be looking to start another round of Beer_Education training, but when this will begin, I can’t say for sure.  More on that soon.

In the meantime, drink early, and drink often.
