Plans in the works.

So what does a Kahuna do for his birthday?

Today, I’ll be getting up early and doing chores and getting the farm ready to take care of itself for 2 days.

Why would I do such a thing?

Yeah, That was Eric's on tap!
Released in super limited quantities, and only to the elite of beer service establishments, this beer draws crowds, long lines and legions of  #Craftbeer fans.

The Falling Rock Taphouse in Denver will be tapping the younger today at 1 p.m. and I intend to be there! Not because I’m a huge fan of Russian River beers, which I am. And not because I love blow your palate for a week not that you’ll need it cause it blows the back of your skull off first hop bombs, which I do.... But I’ll be there for you. My small but growing group of fans that humor me by checking in here and seeing what I’m up to.

Yup, That's me! GABF 2008! (Wasn't I thin!)
Falling Rock always promises a good time, and hosting events like this is why it's one of the best beer bars in the country.

A ritual stop for us during GABF week in Denver, you never know what's going to come on tap. Matter of fact, you never know what... or who you'll see at the Falling Rock.

As anyone who has ever been to the Rock on Saturday at GABF will attest, the stars come out at the Falling Rock.

Not being one to get star struck, I came damn close the night that we met Garrett Oliver from Brooklin Brewery, Vinnie Cilurzo from Russian River,  Sam Calagione from Dog Fish and the man himself, CHARLIE PAPAZIAN... ALL IN ONE NIGHT! And they weren't being rock stars and pompous asses, they were hanging out and drinking some great craft beers... Just like the rest of us.

Add to that mix Mrs. Kahuna, Rob Fullmer, a genuine craft beer ambassador from Phoenix and the one and only Ashley Rouston, self proclaimed Craft Beer Evangelist and "Beer Wench" and you've got yourself a party!

I hope that the scene at Falling Rock doesn't turn out like GABF night, but I am sure all of your favorite Denver Area Beer Bloggers will be there. I hope to catch up with a few!

In the words of the late-great Billy Mays, "But wait! There's more!"

Pants off Dance Off! #Thatisall
The weekend will likely progress to some gambling in Colorado’s high country and maybe dinner somewhere... it’s been a while since we’ve had any food around here no?

A shopping trip to the big liquor store may be in order and perhaps a pub or two and a homebrew store? Who knows, we will play it by ear and see what happens when the Kahunas hit the town sans kids!

Stay safe this weekend and drink responsibly!

See ya on Tuesday.

Hope you had a great birthday. I expect that having a PtY would be a great way to celebrate. Wish I could have been at FRTH for the tapping, but I was up at Grimm Brothers in Loveland for another release of The Count Imperial Stout. I got a bunch of bottles of that brew and hopefully I can share one with you sometime soon. Happy Birthday Big Kahuna!

Thanks Dave! It was fun!
I am trying to work out a trip to your neck of the woods for a brewery tour, but I just can't get those damn ducks to stay lined up!
