Just in case there is any confusion... I have received some comments and emails that appear to be misdirected to me, with the intended target being a craft brewing outfit in Delaware: Evolution Craft Brewing.
I am not that entity. I will continue, as I have in the past, to forward all communications I get in error to Evolution Craft Brewing - until of course it becomes too much for me.
I have not spoken with the people at Evolution Craft Brewing, but obviously, I respect what they are doing (a start-up craft brewery), and can appreciate their name, and wish them all the best. I have linked above to their website, but they also have a blog located here.
I have not had a chance to taste their brews - I would go for the Porter if I could - I haven't seen them around my neck of the woods (central Jersey) yet. Incidentally, I lived in Wilmington/Newcastle, Delaware for a bit when I went to school. Had some good times. Drank much beer. It is where I had my first Sierra Nevada and Newcastle (and Yuengling!)- fond memories indeed.
Beer fans around the world know which Michael Jackson I'm talking about...
From the NY Times:
"Michael Jackson, a leading beer critic who helped start a renaissance of interest in beer and breweries worldwide in the 1970s, was found dead on Thursday at his home in West London. He was 65."
I'll be raising a glass to toast Mr. Jackson today, maybe at lunch, maybe later. Either way - cheers and rest in peace...
