The Bowler of Saint Brigid

I just got back from dropping a genuine bowler for clayrobeson into the post. Originally, it had been intended as a symbol of his status as Lord Mayor for last year’s Oktoberfest gather, but through a series of unfortunate events1, I managed not to have it for him. Since I’ve been meaning to send it, but for reasons beyond my control2, it’s been sitting under my visitor’s chair ever since.

It was ordered from a maker in Portland, OR. When I placed the order, I surprised the gentleman on the line by telling him that I had found them through a google search for "haberdasher." He paused and said, "I didn’t realize that there were still people out there who knew that word." Hey, somebody’s got to keep the faith, even if he doesn’t accessorize well and looks terrible very silly in hats.

At any rate, it all got me thinking about brewing again, and seasonal festivities, and I realized that I need to get crackin’ on a couple of things… most notably, a marzen to shut away for the fall. I’m sure I’ll be posting more about this once I actually make plans. I also have open requests for a weizen and a lambic of some kind, so these will also be entering the queue.
