Journal of the American Homebrewers Association, Volume 1, Number 1.

In December of this year, Zymurgy Magazine will celebrate its 40th anniversary.

In December 1978, the American Homebrewers Association —led by Charlie Papazian, Daniel Bradford, Charlie Matzen, et al.— launched the magazine (then a pamphlet), only two months after brewing at home had been delisted as a federal crime.
'Zymurgy' is the seventh-to-last entry in our Unabridged Dictionary. It is defined as 'a branch of applied chemistry that deals with fermentation processes (as in winemaking or brewing),' and is used as a fancy word for the profession, hobby, or fellowship of brewing beer.

Pic(k) of the Week: Autumn magenta.

Autumn magenta

Even as its leaves wither, a morning-glory still preens, in royal purple, untended and wild along the side of a city street. Life lesson.

As seen (in the morning of) 19 October 2018, in the Kirkwood neighborhood of Atlanta, Georgia.

Pic(k) of the Week: Whole Note

Whole Note

The The Big 9 was once the prime African-American enterprise and entertainment district in Chattanooga, Tennessee. And the Whole Note Restaurant and Lounge was once one of that neighborhood's premier African-American music clubs.

Now renamed the Martin Luther King District, the area shows signs of revitalization. In what form remains to be seen.

In the photo, taken 6 October 2018, a man walks in front of the now-abandoned club.
