It's funny, this Albany ale stuff. Things happen like you get quoted in the local paper, The Times Union, not really having done an interview. See, Craig has done such a slap up job with the project's new website that the information has a life of its own. And there's a photo of me using chop sticks.
And there is a lot to talk about, too. The good folk at C.H. Evans Brewing are recreating a 1901 Albany ale. The good folk at the Homebrew Emporium are creating a version for small scale production. It's getting discussed on the radio, too.
And there is a book deal. Contracts are in the mail right now. Which now means I have The Alan and Max Book with, you know, Max coming out for Christmas on Kindle, the Ontario history book that Jordan and I are writing coming out in June and a book on the history of beer and brewing with Craig coming out later in the summer of 2014. Good thing I am a manic insomniac.
An event is in the works for early November in Albany. A tasting of the beer. Perhaps another presentation at The Institute following up on Craig's last one in April. I'll be heading down to take part subject to the early on set of winter. It's a four hour drive but a pretty easy one. You might want to head there, too. More details when they become available.
