In 2013 I made more photos I’m proud of than any year past, but this one stands out because of the memories it brings out. I was lucky enough to be in California when one of my best friends achieved his three-year dream of opening a brewery, and I photographed him as he poured the first beer through the taps at Woodfour Brewing Company. That week also led me to my new job, and I’ll soon be documenting the culmination of more than three years of dreaming, planning and executing when Eric and Tom pull the first beers through the taps at Penrose Brewing Company. And then I’ll pour a hell of a lot of beer for them through those same taps.
2013 was good to me, but I can’t wait for what’s in store for 2014 and beyond.
