adventures in beerland
by clark baker
what you are about to see is how a hobby, if left unchecked, can quickly become an obsession. i am not what you would call a 'handy man.' several people can attest to this. i once tried to eat a hammer. but this is what i built this weekend. this is what the beer crazed frat brother would refer to as a 'kegerator.' i, however, would like to rename this machine- the homebrewed draft dispensing robot. here is the rundown-i put my homebrew in keg, keg gets hooked up, dispense beer, drink beer. four easy steps. some features of my beer dispensing robot are a chalkboard top so i can write on it, tap handles(that are missing...haven't arrived yet) AND the ability to serve three different beers at a time.
other news- i had a brewing session saturday that turned into an impromptu bbq. i don't ever suggest trying to brew a 5 gallon batch of hefeweizen and grilling bratwurst for 12 people simultaneously. it's more difficult than you think it would be.
well that's it for this guest blog. please send any questions or comments to

i know...i have been a bad blogger lately. i have just been trying to keep my head above water and keep treading while maintaining some bit of sanity AND trying to live in the moment. honestly i am having problems with that equation- keep going- remain sane- absorb it all in...
i leave you with this lyric from lauryn hill
what you want might make you cry
what you need might pass you by
if you don't catch it
and what you need ironically
will turn out what you want to be
if you just let it
