Our Little Pokemon

By

I have slowly grown to realize that my life is a lot like a Pokemon story. I have been lucky enough to be gifted quite a special Pokemon and one day my little Mudkip will turn into a giant Swampert. I am a Pokemon trainer and no two Pokemons are alike. Each Pokemon has a […]

I Love Banana Pancakes

By

I love banana pancakes. I love to cook them (of course I have a secret recipe). I love to eat them. I love to make them for other people. I love to make Nutella sandwiches out of them. I even love the Jack Johnson song. It’s only natural that I’ve harbored the desire to brew […]

Our Tiny Little Professor

By

I found it difficult to decide how to begin this post. I decided rather than having my husband and I introduce autism in this opening paragraph, I’d instead let the autistic author of “The Reason I Jump”  Naoki Higashida do so with a few of our favorite quotes.   “When you see an object, it […]

Our Brewery Pre-Adolescence

By

This past Fall, when I first started drafting this particular blog post we had just installed our 13th and final fermenting tank.  That tank was a 40bbl tank and we treat it like a 45bbl tank when we run our lower yield pale ales through it (i.e. mostly Fantasy Factory).  In this configuration the brewery […]

The Secret of Tokyo Sauna…

SamuRye P.A. was the third beer we ever brewed at K4. I like samurais, and being a rye pale ale (Rye P.A.) I thought the name was clever. That fell flat on its face. People would pronounce it, “sam-yoo-rye”. The other part that fell flat on its face was not the inclusion of rye in […]
