Personal Brewery, a Wine Blog, The Road No More

Something I covet:

"The WilliamsWarn Personal Brewery has six main technical features that, when combined together, create the world's first all-in-one brewing appliance. This combination then allows you to make the freshest beer on the planet with minimum effort. The current design is for 23 litres of beer. Professional quality beer in 7 days, just like a modern Brewery. Cold, clear and perfectly carbonated." At just under $5000, one would have to drink QUITE a bit of beer for this to become worthwhile. I, for one, am up for the challenge.

(Jamoosh, are you getting this for Christmas?)


In case you live under a rock (not that there's anything wrong with that), you may have heard that I've started a wine blog, 50 States of Wine. My plan is to travel as extensively as possible and attempt to drink as many wines from all 50 states as I can possibly afford (not much at the moment). Does this seem like a shameless attempt to get free wine samples? I believe the Wine Harlots said it quite succinctly: "Wine Harlots welcome samples and promotional items. (We are shameless hussies about promo items. Love, love, love them.)" Ditto. Pretty please head over to 50 States of Wine and follow and while you're at it, like on Facebook as well. You all are the best!


Much to many readers' dismay, Patrick shut down The Road [A Multi-Sport Blog] and appeared ready to dedicate himself full time to Ironman training sans audience. However, he has resurfaced at the Endurance Athlete Project, which has been refashioned into his personal blog. Go there to get your fix of training, music,and Patrick, or just for the banner, which is absolutely stunning. (Spoiler alert!)

Have a great weekend!


  1. Slightly confused here Kovas. You are going to taste Beer from the 50 states or wine?

    And I am digging Patrick's new blog/site. Looks great and still the same content that Patrick always provided.

  2. Being a wannabe oenophile (did I even spell that right?) I am all over your quest and will follow along.

    Love Patrick's new site and his post yesterday was spot on for aging athletes like us!

  3. Jason, it's 50 states of wine, but as an occasional beer drinker and gearhead, the personal brewery is too cool for me.

    Amanda, thanks for following!

  4. 23 liters = about six gallons which is about standard for a batch of home brew. That said, I would have to drink a lot of beer to get my return on investment. Plus, while I do occasionally brew my own beer, I much prefer to have a wide selection of beer versus a lot of a few beers.

  5. That is a gorgeous banner. Good luck in your quest for free drinks and travel. :)

  6. Chateau De Bouvier, Outside of Sillwater in Oaklahoma are generally supposed to be good, though the 03's are a little flat to me.

  7. Don't know that one, Patrick, I was leaning more towards Girls Gone Wine.

  8. I don't see that much difference between Patrick's old and new Blog.

  9. You like me! You really, really like me!

    Can't wait to read about your adventures.

    All the best,

    Nannette Eaton
