Malware and Broken Bottles (2 Comments)

We’ve been hacked or attacked or whatever the correct term is. Anyhow, trying to visit our site may cause you to see a ‘Reported Attack Site’ warning. Apparently, our site was distributing malware, but it never actually infected anyone because no-one visits. I’ve removed all suspicious files from the website and upgraded wordpress to address the problem. I was using an outdated version and suspect that is what led to bad things happening and the logs seem to agree. Now I just need to wait for Google to review the status of site and determine that the problem has been fixed.

The other half of the title is less interesting. We’ve experienced our first bottle explosion. I was in the basement over the weekend and heard an odd sound. When I went to investigate, I found a broken bottle of Farmhouse Ale. I’m glad I was down there because these things get very stick if they dry. Over the last several months, I’ve been calling it the Foamhouse Ale, because every time I opened one I would pour a glass of foam and then a glass of beer. I guess the pressure has finally reached the critical point. Anyhow, I have 10 bottles of Farmhouse Ale left and I think I should drink them very quickly. I’m happy to give them away as well. 🙂 On that note, I’m also looking to offload a case of disappointing Trappist/Abbey Ale and the few remaining bottles of Swill.

On to better news. We finally bottled the Scotch Ale and our initial impression is that it is going to be a wonderful beer. The smoke is better balanced than the last batch, it’s very malty, and it has a thick, creamy texture. We’ve also brewed an IPA and a batch of Beerios (Nut Brown). Those will be ready to bottle in a couple of weeks. Sometime in May we will probably have the first of several ‘Drink up our Beer’ parties before we relocate.
