Today we’re officially launching the Briess Blog. Watch for posts from my technical co-workers…brewer Bob Hansen and maltster Dave Kuske, Pres Gordon Lane and and our technical sales team, Penny Pickart, Dave Richter and Rich Ellis (his first day with Briess was last Monday!). We’ll talk about malting and everything associated with it…and we welcome your questions and comments!

BTW, this past weekend I attended the AHA National Homebrew Conference in Minneapolis along with Bob O’Connell (VP of Sales & Marketing and my boss) and Gordon. A highlight was visiting Juno and Andrew at the Northern Brewer Homebrew Shop on Grand Avenue in St. Paul and their warehouse in Roseville. They run a class act and we appreciate the time they took to chat and show us around. Thanks guys!

Thanks for stoppin’ by our blog. It was nice meetin’ you.
