BBC's "15 Year Anniversary Ale & Art Festival" is Saturday, November 1.

Time flies when you’re drinking beer.

It doesn’t seem possible that 15 years have passed since I returned from a European vacation, drove out to the Capshew residence for a picnic, and chatted with David Pierce about the beers planned for the forthcoming Bluegrass Brewing Company.

Specifically, I’d just been in Cologne and Dusseldorf, and Dave was interested in what the local Kolsch and Alt ales were like because versions were being formulated for the new BBC.

All that’s gone down in the intervening years would require a volume lengthier than the blogging format, and time that I don’t have require for compiling it. Someday, someday. Until then, BBC’s celebrating a birthday at the original location in St. Matthews, and it looks like a great opportunity to taste some of BBC pub brewer Jerry Gnagy’s seasonals and specialties.

And then I serenaded everyone to Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" on a mono cassette deck. Amy loved it...
