My sister and I just attended the AHA Rally at Stone for the first time and we had a blast! We actually got to pour . . . Yes, we were the official “pourer’s” the 23 samples of beer that Stone had in the competition that day. At first we got introduced to the list and we were feeling a little overwhelmed but soon enough we were welcomed by some of the actual homebrewer’s themselves. Pat Horton was one of the actually contestants with his Chipotle Style Beer which was insanely incredible. We also had Ken from Barley Engineer’s giving us a hand!
Excited that we are going to be brewing with Pat in the future so he can teach us the tiny “secrets of life” . . . he introduced his Stumblefoot Southwestern Chipotle Stout . . . And yes it was out of this world. Zackary was also there with his dad who I need not to mention he made us laugh all day- Thanks Zach! Overall everyone was very patient and pleasant :) This was our fist time serving beer in this type of atmosphere. I sometimes gave a bit too much than the average pour therefore I had the longest line, hehe-
