…but I might have burnt the cookies

The sky is dark before 8pm, I’ve practically moved into my hoodie and I’m stress-baking. SIPtemberfest must be right around the corner!

This time of year has always been my favorite; crisp and refreshing hoodie-wearing weather, goodies baking in the oven, football, pumpkin beers, (jk on that last one tho.) Since SIPtemberfest started, it now also means late nights on the laptop, running out of checks, my living room turning into my second office, lots and lots of tortilla soup from the Mad Taco and coffee and beer pretty much everywhere, deliberately and otherwise. But for real: it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

From the moment this SIP-train started rolling I’ve had the honor and pleasure to meet, work with, learn from and have fun with a long, long list of incredible people. The craft beer community is truly a very special group of passionate, entrepreneurial, creative and curious fools – exactly my kind of people. And while, yes, we’ve all encountered the occasional human embodiment of drain a pour, the overwhelming majority of us beer-lovers haven’t lost sight of what is at the heart of this community: enjoying craft beer together. Because of that, SIPtemberfest is 10.

And what a ride it’s been! On behalf of the entire SIP Team, I can’t thank our beer family enough for supporting us through all the rain and shine, muddy dogs, Single Chair rides, guitarists on the railing, marriage proposals, team photos, scavenger hunts and of course beer! We have something really special here and even though we know it’s cliche, we really couldn’t have done this without you!  We are so excited to enjoy craft beer with you all for years to come!

oh crap. I think the cookies are burning. Sorry. BRB.

Please help us celebrate our big one-zero and rock your old SIP Ts, hoodies and hats, and/or come in your most festive beer-drinking attire! If enough people represent, we just might have to award some prizes…!!

We will be in touch all week sharing more about prizes and other cool things about #SIP10 so stay tuned for more SIPNews!
