I pounded out a few pages today. Writing from conversations with Geoff Dale of Three Heads Brewing is always easy. He’s extremely enthusiastic and talkative (and he’s usually buying too). Then I compile the Rochester Beer Guide appendix, which is little more than the names, addresses, and twitter names of the city’s breweries, beer stores, and pubs. It’s mundane, but a necessary part of this process. Plus it took up a bunch of words.
Tonight, I’m interviewing John Roman, owner of The Old Toad, arguably the first bar in the USA to serve real ale on cask, and definitely the first pub in Rochester to treat indie beer with the respect it deserved. I’m expecting plenty of good stories.
Getting closer, one keyboard tap at a time.
