Cheers to Chris

Chris was one of the first people to reach out to say “come visit us” on our Home Free Tour last year. We were thrilled to get the invite as we reaaaallllly wanted to visit and stay in Jackson.

He’s indicative of the brewing community – generous, hospitable, smart, and all around really nice guy.

His blog sums it up well.

In addition to his personal hospitality, Snake River hosted an event with WEB. 19 beer enthusiastic women crammed into a small room to talk and listen. Great fun and education had by all. He’s right of course – their clientele knows their beer. It was fabulously invigorating.

Many thanks to him and his tolerant cats for letting us stay. We’re already plotting to return for another visit…welcome mat’s out in Ashland too, Chris.

Tonight I get the distinct pleasure and honor of being Snake River Brewing’s guest for a Women & Beer event. If you can make it, still a few hours away, we’ll be upstairs from 530 – 7.

We’ll cover some women in beer history, female tastebuds, some termin-ale-logy and surely random other stuff as it comes up. The audience will be in charge. Plus SRB has kindly offered to give every attendee a few 5 ounce pours from their beer menu (I’ve selected 3 different ones to highlight).

Snake River is truly beer passionate with a tasty complementary food menu, a fun crew and a nice place to enjoy it all. Here are some pictures from the latest festival where I met Chris, who graciously invited me to Jackson. Can you tell they’re having fun?

Chris gave us a grand comprehensive tour yesterday too. I really enjoy tours and it was quite interesting in all kinds of good ways – including tasting some casks they have (sours! mmmm). I find brewers and breweries to be innovative (making things work for them), creative and  inventive. Sometimes you have to be so it serves them well.

Having fun and being passionate makes for a winning combination (alright, so they have some good business sense too). Said another way, when you’re having fun pursuing your passion, it’s alllll good.

Tomorrow morning we head for Grand Teton Brewing. Rob & Pete have graciously faciliated a tour. Can’t wait.
