...and consequantly, luckily, and amazingly of Samuel Adams. more specifically, Mr. Samuel Adams himself, Jim Koch.
(Koch = pronounced as 'cook')
i was at Vine & Barley tuesday night for an impromptu beer, or two...
...when who should wonder on in unannounced but Mr. Jim Koch himself. after barely restraining my beer geek freak-out, Samuel Adams Boston Lager and Octoberfest flowed (in the appropriate Samuel Adams glass, of course) and my life became just a little bit more complete.
the man himself? fun, funny, and just a wee bit wicked i would say based on some of the hilarious stories he shared. Jim hung around for a good hour which gave me more than enough time for a picture, and he also graciously signed the back of my t-shirt which is going to be framed ASAP.
to great beer, to Samuel Adams, and to Jim Koch: Prost!
