Beer Cooler Gone!

Well, the beer cooler was sold and picked up Saturday. We sold it for $250 which about what I paid for it.

I will miss the great parties we had with it servering up cold draft beer.

My wife wants to purchase new one for the new house. We will see?

The Beer Cooler

Well, it seems like we are moving into a new phase. The phase without a beer cooler. It looks like we have someone wanting to purchase our beer cooler.

Many years ago, I had the chance to go to an auction for a Sizzler restaurant's equipment. I was able to pickup a 13 foot wood lament beer cooler with two brass towers with three taps on each. I got the cooler for either $225 or $250. You can see more about it here.

I got married and quickly determined the beer cooler has not coming into the married. It stayed at my old house which my wife and I have been renting since we married. We have put the rental house up for sell and we have been looking for a new home for the beer cooler.

I brew beer and this was a great way to server the beer. I frequently had microbrews available, too. Many guys were over joyed when coming upon the sight of the beer cooler in my garage. My garage was not the typical garage, because it was carpeted and included an old couch, a pinball machine, a dart board, and of course the beer cooler.

Kicking Back With Olde Towne

Karen and I are sitting here enjoying Huntsville's first microbrewery known as Olde Towne Brewing Co. Sadly, there web site is not working or someone hasn't paid the bill (just kidding). They are are listed in Wikipedia.

We first had this beer at the grand debuted on August 12th, 2004 which was held at Humphrey's

We have had all of their standard brews which are Amber, Pale Ale, and Extra Pale Ale. The Extra Pale Ale is brewed for the “Bud” crowd to make the jump to microbrew. The Amber and Pale Ale are typically for their styles. All three have well received in Huntsville, but the favors vary from batch to batch.

Presently, Olde Towne has a Hefeweizen out as their seasonal brew. It has been their best offering to date according to us and friends.
