Office Hours with the Publican returns for a third run, with modified scheduling.

The twin tasks of winding down NABC’s summer/fall event season, while at the same time adapting to a bridgeless lifestyle, have been challenging as well as exhausting. Now, with slight light finally twinkling at tunnel’s end, it’s time to think about a resumption of Office Hours with the Publican.

Office Hours originated with this post in January, 2010: Office Hours with the Publican?

When the second term of Office Hours began in fall of 2010, there was a gradual shift from improvised to better organized, as we slogged through the length and breadth of the Beer Judge Certification Program’s style guidelines in the run-up to the Public House’s bottled beer list revision.

For Season Three, there will be further changes to the format of Office Hours, primarily involving a new “second and fourth Monday” schedule necessitated by my needing to keep first Mondays open for New Albany city council meetings. Office Hours will continue to meet at 6:30 p.m. in the Prost area.

Here’s the schedule for the remainder of 2011.

October 10: New Glarus Brewing Company; assorted beers foraged by yours truly this past August while in Wisconsin.

October 24: Survey of current NABC & guest draft selections. Lupulin Land will be underway, and so there likely will be a hop accent to these proceedings.

November 14 TBA
November 28 TBA
December 12 TBA
December 19 (3rd Monday to avoid Boxing Day) TBA

The NABC brain trust is contemplating the program for these final four dates, and when we reach a conclusion, it will be posted here.
