First Brewiversary

For the record, today was my Brewiversary. Last year, on September 28, I made a batch of Dry Run Pale Ale. To celebrate, I drank the last bottle. Pretty good stuff actually. A tiny bit extracty-y (it was a MoreBeer kit), but clean and with excellent hop character and balance. Hopping was 2 oz Willamette at 5 minutes and 2 oz Cascade at 1. I may come up with a better grain bill and re-use that hopping regimen--very nice combo, actually. So happy brewiversary to me and, while I'm at it: Here's to the Amalgamated Brewer's Guild! Prost!
