I'm with two old friends, and my fingers reek of rosemary. Bill, Sam & I just finished picking the "Estate Rosemary" for our collaborative Saison du BUFF. It'll go into the brew in about a half hour—along with the other herbs—and in the meantime we're all sitting like kids in detention writing our labels. Good times. Seriously. We're having a great time catching up. Other than the many times we've seen each other at conferences and fests since we formed BUFF in 2003, this is the first chance we've had to get together over a brew (as in making it) and later, a brew (as in drinking it). I hope you're able to enjoy this collaborative effort with your old friends!
