This week I went to Blue Cat Brewing Co in Rock Island to do a "collaboration" beer.  Which meant a couple things:  1) I helped decide what kind of beer to make and 2) I watched as the PRO brewed the beer so I didn't screw it up.

It really was cool though.  I have a way better understanding of how the process works.  There's a lot of hurry up & wait type situations.

"The water is hot enough...let's mash in".

"Now the water's too, let's warm it up."

"Set a timer for 1 hour from now."

"Let's drink a beer!"

It's right up my alley to be honest.

Look for the Blue Cat/97X Pastry Brown Ale coming soon!
