Due to popular demand Greg Noonan will be our return guest this Sunday.

Mr. Noonan is the author of "Brewing Lager Beer", "The Seven Barrel Brewery Brewers' Handbook", and "Scotch Ale" from the Classic Beer Style Series. Greg is also the founder of The Vermont Pub and Brewery. I ripped off the following passage from their website;

The Vermont Pub and Brewery opened in November of 1988, but its' history did not begin on that day. For three years, Greg and Nancy Noonan petitioned the Vermont legislature to change the law to allow pub brewing in the the state. The legislation was passed in May of 1988. The Noonans began working to convert a space that has formerly been a prep kitchen, office, and a banquet room into a 14 barrel brewery to service the 175 seat restaurant.

The brewery equipment itself is a compilation of old-fasioned Yankee ingenuity. You see a lot of showpiece breweries nowadays, but a decade ago these off-the-shelf brewies didn't exist. Using a maple sap boiler, a stockyard feeder, and a former commercial ice cream manufacturing vessel, Greg Noonan designed a brewery that has become nationally and internationally known and respected for its' fine ales and lagers. Greg is a well known speaker at national beer conferences and has written numerous articles for various industry publications. He has also acted as a consultant for several brew-pubs and micro breweries regarding start-up and brewery design.

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) When you enter the chat, please observe the following guidelines:

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) Please keep greetings and idle chatter to a minimum. They create confusion.

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) Please wait a few minutes before entering your first post while some dialog is generated on your screen. Otherwise you may be interrupting a conversation.

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) If you have a question please precede it by entering a '?' so that it may be addressed in the order that it was received.

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) Type your question immediately after posting your '?' so you're ready to post when the moderator tells you to 'go'.

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) Please stay on topic during the initial hour of the chat. The chat can last as long as everybody who's participating wants and can become an open chat after the topic is addressed. Observing the first hour is especially important when guest chatters are featured.

(IMG:style_emoticons/brewboard/wink.gif) Questions/comments will be addressed in the order that they're received and by relevance. For example; if someone posts a question concerning hops during a chat about sanitization, the question will be disregarded.
