Brewer profiles include both homebrewers and brewers who work for “the man,” or “the woman,” or the… nevermind! This edition we have our first homebrewer profile.
When I first met Phil Kane I was glad to recognize his first achievement: a homebrewer crazier than me. I mean that with affection. It was during a pub crawl. We were at a former micro and brewpub in Nashville called Market Street and he was already there wearing a big butt. I’m not kidding. Our annual Music City Brewers competition was being held near Halloween, so naturally Phil came in costume… and wore it on the crawl.
For years he was affectionally known in the club as, “Ass Man,” and that’s not sarcasm. Phil is quite loved here in Nashville. Just don’t tell Jody his wife.
But he also earned my respect because he likes to brew odd/weird beers like I do.

We have about 30 boxes of 1.5 liter bottles.
They have not been cleaned and still have labels on them.
There are six bottles in each box.
If you want any of them, come and get ‘em.
We have had a few people who have moved away and wish to be removed from this list.
I don’t know how to do that. Carolyn is still out. When she returns, she will have to do it.

I came here for the first time in the early 90s and eventually found Pittsfield Brew Works. I didn’t go back for quite a while.
Last year for the first time in at least ten years I stopped and was pleasantly surprised at how much the brew had improved. I even bought a shirt. I promised to return and do a review when I returned the next year.
This is that review.
The Professor thought he’d repost this one for our visitors from Bartcop.
