    I merely make beer. The rest is open to interpretation I guess.
    Not sure how much of an introduction you are looking for. But going back a few years, I apprenticed at a couple locations (White Birch, Hill Farmstead). I then moved on to be the consultant and only employee for 8 months and the only production employee until my termination, at Blue Lobster in Hampton, NH. (355bbl annual, tiny is an understatement) I was given the corporate shove off after being denied stake in the business months earlier.
    Here I stand. Unemployed, but looking to and working towards the future. With something I care, most certainly, too deeply about.
    How was that? :) I'm slightly notorious for my social ineptitude and overuse of cliches.

    Sadly, I've had that on lock since the c-section.

    I'm hoping by the time I finish a beer, the Belgian Imperial stout and Paul's Boutique will be released. Still no word on either.
    I've always been very slow with alcohols, which makes me super fun at parties, haha

    Also to those I didn't tell, loan committee was pushed back a touch.

    Perhaps Mr. beard guy is waiting for a day when he doesn't wake up miserable. Then - release the beers!

    Funding has been approved! Onward!! :D

    New life goal: By my 30th birthday I will be producing beer in a brewery I cofounded with good folks. I will have equal stake and handle all brewing as well as creative control over production. With as much heart as I can muster.

    Thank you all tremendously for the support!

    Wineglasses and snifters are on the docket. Still building the branding/namesake though.

    Can I ask in what state we're likely to see you? This might have already been answered but I missed it.. still NH? Still seacoast?

    I grew up since I was four on a beef cattle farm in Canaan. NH holds a lot of nostalgia for me.
    So planning for NH, looking at a few spots around 15mins from Portsmouth.

    That's what I wanted to hear. I plan to be a frequent customer, especially since I never actually made it to BL while you were still there. Best of luck, I'm excited!
