This past Saturday was a classic day for beer!
And if that wasn't enough of a great way to start off the day, the Atlanta Eats Radio show booked me for a live interview right after the show aired, so I happily drove over and kicked it with their jovial host Mara Davis. That went super well, especially after I cracked open the liquid surprise I had on deck: Enter the delicious Terrapin Brewing Company/Schmaltz Brewing Company collaboration called the Reunion Ale '13: A Beer For Hope, a brown ale brewed with cocoa nibs, cinnamon, Jittery Joe's coffee and vanilla at 7.5% ABV with proceeds going to the Institute for Myeloma & Bone Cancer Research. I lost my mother on this exact day two years ago from f*cking cancer (see my post about it here), so it was fitting to present this sipper during my radio appearance.

After we finished, the Villains Wicked Heroes rolled through with my favorite salad in the city, their Hail Nero made with kale, and some of their crazily inventive sandwiches.
After that, I was off to Burnt Hickory Brewery to be a guest pourer (see the @DrinkLikaFish video here), then a potluck dinner and debut of the Shake Your Rumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale brewed with my dude and homebrewer extraordinaire Jon Shari, and closed the night watching that bullsh*t Pacquiáo fight at my fellow Brew Tang Clan member Mike's house.
What a day. Thanks Mom.
