Olympia, WA - Greetings from the Skep and Skein, a beer bar in West Olympia and the only place this side of Budd Bay that serves much beyond Coors Light and Manny's. I came out tonight to read a few chapters from my latest homebrew book, John Palmer's How to Brew, an amazingly free of charge book available online or, if you feel so inclined, in the bookstore for pay.
This past Sunday afternoon I found myself in Seattle where I took care of some longstanding unfinished business of buying a homebrew kit. A big white bucket, brew kettle, glass jug and $200 later, I'm finally ready to create a new palate for my life artistry - cooking booze.
Bar closed, to be continued...
