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.

    Thanks so much for all you did in keeping the Brick up, even as so much around you was seemingly in decline. Looking forward to learning more from you elsewhere in the District.

    Holy crap, now the City Paper is writing articles about you? How long before you become the next Michael Jackson?
