With 2014 ending tonight, I’m looking forward to 2015.I don’t think there’s a better time to refocus on this blog and all sharing all of the brewing-related adventures I get into.
For Christmas this year, Hillary surprised me by purchasing the domain http://www.goodellbrewing.com. She’s moved the blog to this new and awesome domain and has completely revamped the website. It has a new format, new pages, and new posting goals.
Over the next month or so, we hope to flesh out the Brewing Equipment and Homebrewed Beers pages. The Awards & Recognitions page need to be updated since I’ve actually accumulated a few more ribbons over the past year or so. And while I haven’t done much judging lately, I’d like to start including personal reviews of commercial beers I try. Those reviews will be posted on the Adventures in Judging page.
To kick off 2015, I’m going to be brewing up a specialty beer featuring Colorado spruce needles, which I’ve dubbed The Spruce is Loose. The pine/spruce flavor in beer is polarizing; people seem to either love it or hate it. When Hillary and I visited a brewery in Asheville on our honeymoon, she was the only one who actually enjoyed their spruce beer. So here’s hoping the Spruce is Loose lives up to expectations. You can expect to see a Brew Day Blog all about it very soon.
So here’s a celebrating a very good 2014 and having high hopes for 2015. Cheers!
