It's been a busy week here at the good beer blog with a trip to Toronto as well as working my way through an a amazingly good history of beer and brewing as well as another not so amazing history of beer in America. And working. And having a life. All the while, the emails have been coming in with more entries for the photo contest. All photos should be clickable for a larger view.
Scott sends us a couple of photos from one of his favorite breweries, Shiner of Texas. This is one of the breweries that I continue to never come across on a shelf or a line of taps due to the realities of geography and the weighty cost of transporting kegs and/or myself...unless perhaps I make that run soon into the mid-West someday soon. I quite like that iced firkin step-up.
Next, Knut of Norway, a regular correspondent around here, forwards two pictures of Englishness aleiness - though I suspect that snowfall is not as far south as the brewery. I was thinking that pub shot was a wee bit out of focus but then I thought that that might be entirely appropriate.
Finally today, we have Gary, the potter of Ithaca, another regular. I am assured no animals were harmed or otherwise illuminated on the nature of human existence in the making of these photos. The technique apparently involves a rinsed bottle with a bit of butter at the mouth.
Please send anything you fancy. The contest runs for another week and a bit.
