Last night was an especially fun “Nightlife at the Academy” , as the them was the Science of Brewing Beer. Representatives from many local SF breweries, including our friend Richard at Elizabeth Street Brewery and our neighbors at Social Kitchen and Brewery were on hand to talk about the brewing process and talk about their beers. I posted a few (old iPhone quality) pictures here.
Also on hand were brewmasters from 21st Amendment, the San Francisco Brewcraft supply store, Magnolia Pub, Bison Brewing, and MataVeza.
Whew! That’s a lot of links! But all in all it was a lot of fun, and I never pass up a chance to go to the Academy. In fact, this was my second trip in less than a week – last Friday I got to attend a premiere of a documentary produced by the Professional Engineers in CA Government.
Entitled The Next Frontier: Engineering the Golden Age of Green, it was primarily concerned with developing alternative, non polluting forms of energy. It was very interesting to watch, not preachy, and overall rather worth watching. In a few weeks I’ll be doing a contest with a copy of the film on DVD as a prize.
This weekend promises some nice weather, even in San Francisco, so be sure to enjoy it as much as you can. I shall be at home toiling away on all sorts of crazy PHP things and whatnots that should be done soon.
Also, I’m still waiting to see if we hear anything regarding yesterday’s challenge. I’ll post an update if anything happens. (In other words, I’ll be working on the roof deck on PHP junk).
