The First Day of December’s Brewsing

First, a beer recap.

Friday night Beer Date with the wife:

  • Headed to Black Bridge around 4 pm
  • Since we’ve been going for a while I asked the bartender her name (Nicole) and introduced the me and the wife as I ordered an Evil Red for the me and a Katastrophic Humiliation for the wife
  • Evil Red is a red in the vein of Red Chair from Deschutes and Flipside from Sierra Nevada; i.e., a new “northwest pale ale”. Only in the Southwest. I like it far more than I should. Katastrophic Humiliation is a barley wine style ale. It is well done if a little light in color for my taste. I also dislike the name, spelling and all. Doesn’t stop me from drinking it, of course.
  • Sister in law showed up, enough said. But, hey, she can be cool and she did buy me beer.
  • Had some more Evil Red and their new Stresstout. It was a perfect imperial stout, as they say – thick, creamy head, heavy body, coffee foundation, high alcohol. Loved it.

And now, the day’s brewsing:

  • My wife put coffee on
  • I didn’t get ready in time to enjoy a cup at home, had to settle for the to-go
  • Ran the production summaries
  • Updated the queries in the spreadsheet to now collect data for December
  • Finished some month end inventory summaries
  • Organized parts bins
  • Called Ambient Edge to look at our heater – it was only a belt
  • Coordinated a material shipment
  • Updated environmental reports
  • Updated weekly operating supply inventory
  • Added to my To-Do list
  • Finished coffee early today
  • Created a bill of lading for a shipment
  • Queued up purchase requisitions that need to be converted to purchase orders
  • Entered material into computer
  • Loaded some items on UPS Freight truck
  • Went to lunch
  • Returned from lunch
  • Switched Pandora stations – from Sixx AM Radio to Joe Satriani Radio; Satch Radio is becoming my go-to station
  • Started converting POs
  • Fought with a stupid spreadsheet
  • Found out some special production requirements for the month; nearly passed out cuz it’s gonna be tough – short month
  • Called about calibrations
  • Reviewed some open POs
  • Discussed casings with Distribution
  • Ordered some storeroom items
  • Scanned old documents and tossed them in recycle bin
  • Made alterations to old POs for the sake of GRs
  • Still updating production spreadsheets
  • I need a beer, but it’s not Friday; craving Evil Red …
  • Found another good workday Pandora station: Gorillaz Radio
  • Was informed about yet another production increase
  • Still not done sorting out all my email
  • Worked on corporate production plan for December
  • Got a request for a spare part, a cable of some kind
  • Updated a parts list

I think I’ve had enough.

I hope there is sweet, iced tea at home. That sounds refreshing right now.
