Fall [is] the time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.
— Lauren DeStefano

The calm, deep breath before the chill of December. A somber month by most accounts, I think November has an underappreciated elegance about it. Muted earth tones, whisper thin clouds trailing across the sky, the soft light of shorter days. Best of all, it ushers in the holidays. The season of joy + peace, cozy nights + celebrating with family is drawing near!

This weekend we’re trying something new with homebrewing: three different beers from one master red ale brew. Coming soon to the Goesch tavern are a nitro tap red, a kettle-soured red + a classic standard red ale. Waiting is the hardest part…

Anything exciting on tap for you? Enjoy whatever the weekend brings, and read on for my updates + links o’ the week!

Cheers, Heather
