Youíd think... but somehow they still survive... Even here in Portland, I really donít understand it... but they do? Iíve been waiting for the shake out... but nothing yet.

A business can push, pull, or both. Great products pull dollars, great salespeople push dollars and the very best businesses do both. Thereís a lot of great pushers out there.

Too much money?


Yes, I have too much money. I could never do it.

That place is pretty bad.


Youíre being kind.

Also brown ale = stout mixed with pilsner. A winning combination!

The thing that holds me back is the money. I just donít think I could pay myself what I make now. As much as I would like to have a job that I love, I love money and my current lifestyle now more.

Luckily (or possibly unluckily) for me, Iíve never made more money than I have brewing. So Iíll never have to view it as a poor paying job.
