Sometimes you find yourself on a green room couch with Craig Robinson. And for a moment you pretend you're in Hot Tub Time Machine. Then you return to reality and realize, I get to talk about beer on TV! Can I just keep talking about beer? It's the most fun thing EVER. I mean it. #authorlife #mybeeryear #beer #craftbeer #cicerone #oregonbeer #pdx

Beer nerdery at its finest tonight. Learned so much at the @portlandbeerweek Sour Beer Seminar, where four brewers asked each other about their tricks and techniques. This is @breaksidebrews #makingfriendsmakingmemories, a blend of sour wheat beers aged on Oregon raspberries in gin barrels. Brewer Ben Edmunds said when the beer had all the "treble notes," they decided to introduce it to Brett yeast strains so it wouldn't be a "wine cooler." #pdxbeerweek #pdxbeer #instabeer #beerstagram #mybeeryear #beer #sourale #breaksidebrewery #pdx #portland #pdxdrinks #craftbeer #cicerone #brettanomyces
