Office Hours with the Publican returns on Monday, September 13, with a special "guest bottle" theme.

It's time for the return of Office Hours with the Publican, with a special twist for the fall season. The first session will be Monday, September 13.

Last spring, we were all over the board with these Monday evening samplings, and there was nothing wrong with that, except I'm at a point where the "Chinese Democracy" of a renewed guest bottled beer list project simply has to get finished, or else.

Therefore, autumn sessions of Office Hours will double as skull sessions for the NABC guest beer list team: Myself, Ben and Eric (or, Eric and Ben).

This changes nothing insofar as the format is concerned, although there'll be a bit more structure to the progression; we'll be taking style sets or sub-sets, tasting and considering examples of them in the narrower context of our guest bottled beer list, soliciting the input of participants, and hopefully making worthwhile decisions.

And, if we get bored, we'll raid the vintage cellar just like last spring.

Once again, cost will be $5 per person (occasionally more if merited). The time is Monday, 6:30 p.m. in Prost, for about an hour.

Monday, September 13 is the first re-convening. We'll decide what to sample before then, and I'll throw it out on the blog. Let's have fun, and learn something about beer.
