Nate, Rob and I attended the Brewers Association’s Craft Brewers Conference in San Francisco last week (along with 3900 other industry professionals-brewing celebrities included) and, upon arrival, we were greeted by a copy of the latest New Brewer magazine published by the BA. To our amazement, the cover shot was of none other than our local brethren from Jester King. Upon further review of this 2011 Craft Brewers Conference Issue, I discovered I, too, had been identified as one of seven new brewers committed to the good beer cause. Two Austin brewers make the list! Wow, what an honor and what exciting times for Texas beer!

While in San Francisco, we managed easily to have a wonderful time, kicked off by an amazing Sour/Barrel Aged Beer Symposium hosted by the owners of Russian River Brewing Company in Santa Rosa, Vinnie and Natalie Cilurzo. Their hospitality and graciousness was unbelievable and their beers, plus those brought in from all over the country for sharing at this event, were truly unreal. Thanks very much to Vinnie, Natalie  and all the supporting staff at RRBC for an unforgettable night!
