The Final Shift

18 Dec

I only have time to drop a quick line about what’s about to happen… I’m about to start my final bartending shift at the Brickskeller. It’s the end of an era and the end of a long chapter in my own life. I’ve had many ups and downs working at the brick. Most importantly I have met many of my close friends here over the years and I have also sadly lost a few at the same time.  The Brick showed me the wonderful world of beer and I fell in love immediately. Who knows what the future holds for my knowledge and love for beer. But the Brickskeller will always be the place where I learned it all, like many others, and I will always hold true to my roots. I intend to dig deep in my memories and write my own reflection on the legacy of the Brickskeller. Just wish me luck tonight and watch me as I continue on my path of promoting artisanal beer to DC and beyond. Also… thank you to everyone I’ve worked with who has shaped me into the person I am today. I owe it all to you.
