A Fresh Start...A Fresh Beer

Today was my last official day working for the provincial government.  I resigned from my position three weeks ago and I carted away the last of the junk that graced my desk this afternoon. 

I am assuming a new role in the beer industry starting April 6th (I'll share the info with you in a few days), and to help celebrate this change I decided to indulge in a couple of Central City Red Racer IPA's.  Awesome stuff.  I had the chance to review the beer for the Spring issue of TAPS, which will be hitting store shelves next week.

Congrats for getting out. I am a g-man for life I think.

Congrats on the "leap of faith" Troy! And that Red Racer is delightful, a good way to toast new beginnings!
