2008 Year in Review Photos

Perhaps it’s too early to be doing a “year in review” post, but if Fred Meyer can sell tinsel at Halloween, I can post whatever I like, when I like. I was going through photos tonight in hopes of entering Alan McLeod’s beery Christmas photo contest. It’s become an annual tradition at his blog, one that may sound familiar to longtime Champagne of Blogs readers: we won the contest a few years ago with a photo from taken at Thom and my “Metolius Brewing” experience. Here’s what I entered into the contest this year:

Amanda (Thom’s wife) drinking Camo-brand Malt Liquor, New Year’s Eve 2007

    I think my beer year will be ending with the tapping of the vintage kegs at the Holiday Ale Fest… if I can get a meeting rescheduled.

    I love that outdoor shot of the pub in Belgium with the bike. Makes me want to go there right now!

    This post was really just another opportunity to lord it over the rest of us who didn’t go to Belgium, isn’t it?
