What I'll miss

examining the pintIt was my final official event as a representative for the Clipper City Brewing Company last evening: a cask tapping at Fireworks, a pizzeria in Leesburg, Va.

Several friends stopped by:

Kim Ross and Chef Mark Marrocco of Magnolias at the Mill; Dean Lake, brewmaster for Sweetwater Tavern in Sterling, Va.; Shawn Malone of Tuscarora Mill; Ron Lindenbusch of Lagunitas Brewery, who was on vacation with his family, and in fact was the guest of honor at a Lagunitas beer dinner later in the evening next door at Tuscarora; and many more cask ale fans, and customers of Fireworks.

I'd be remiss if I didn't offer props to Clipper City Brewing's cellarman, Stephen Marsh. It has been his skill in preparing the brewery's cask ales that has allowed me to present the cask ales to great acclaim.

Go here for more about the event, and here for photos.
