Thomas Wolfe coined the phrase “You can’t go home again.”
In some cases, that may be true.
With Doug Whitt, it couldn’t have been further from.
Doug has been back with us a number of weeks, but we at the Cannon Brew Pub would like to take this opportunity to publicly welcome Doug home. He brewed with Hank, helped Heather find her feet, and is now carrying on the proud tradition started by Jim Newman over a decade ago – and it’s damn good to have him back.
He has already made his mark with “The Ex,” crafted an unfiltered edition of Special Ops, and has some interesting riffs on our legacy ales brewing in that head of his.
But today is special.
Mr. Wolfe’s quote above was lifted from a posthumous manuscript he’d titled The October Fair.
Proving that you can, in fact, go home again – can even make it better – Doug has brewed for you an Oktoberfest!
We give you… STEAMTOBER, a traditional Oktoberfest done in the style of an anchor steam beer. At 6% ABV, it has a nice, nutty nose with a little fruity kick and a smooth nut finish.
Come out today and celebrate Doug’s return by raising a glass of your favorite ale, and know that it was brewed with the utmost care and respect, not just for the craft and the process – but for you, the customer and connoisseur, our friend on the other side of the bar.
Cheers, fellow beer drinker.
And cheer, Doug.
