Matt at Home, Chapter 3

March 16, 2009

Last night’s party was a lot of fun.  It’s the first time since I’ve worked at Great Harvest that we’ve been able to get a lot of people together for a big event, and I think everyone really enjoyed it.

A big thanks to Tara and Chris for hosting the party – her house is cozy and cute so I hope we didn’t destroy it too much!  A few of us went over early to play a drinking game that’s new to me called Beer Cricket.  You can see a summary of how to play and more pictures over at Brew and Bake!

Of course, playing a game like this requires a fair amount of beer.  We got a pony keg of Magic Hat #9, and man did it taste great.

Conor got the lucky first glass – a big pile of foam:

Just beautiful.

There was also a rope swing for goofing off:

We had a nice fondue spread later on, with big hunks of GH bread.

Guitar hero was heavily featured… gotta say, I like Wii Sports waaaaaay better.

Kruti brought her cute sons Ruchir and Utkursh, who are frequent topics of conversation when we’re working, so it was fun to meet them.

We also tasted a few homebrews:

A huge thanks to Jeff and Janet (the owners) for buying the keg!  (Also for employing us)

geez matt!! I tried convince Kath that you threw the party at your house.. you had to go + ruin my plan with the pictures!!


2 Monique March 16, 2009 at 2:23 pm

it seems very appropriate that you wear the Field Day shirt while Kath is away. Are you indeed having a field day while the wife is away? LOL
Loved the bear pics from the earlier posts… those make me giggle!

Well …When Kath is away, Matt will play…:)


4 Angie March 16, 2009 at 2:44 pm

Looks like you had a blast. Wish we had a Great Harvest store around here.


5 zestycook March 16, 2009 at 2:44 pm

Matt, looks like you had yet another fun time without Kath… I am sensing a pattern… haha kidding :)



6 Becca A March 16, 2009 at 2:47 pm

Beer cricket sounds fun but I think it would result in me injuring myself badly…


7 Ryane March 16, 2009 at 3:09 pm

Beer crickets looks fun! How well do you think Kath would do? ; )


8 greenbean March 16, 2009 at 3:10 pm

while kath’s away, the husband (er, Matt) will play :-)


9 Kara March 16, 2009 at 3:17 pm

Mmm that bread must have been awesome for fondue!


10 Elina March 16, 2009 at 3:19 pm

Wow, Matt, you consume a healthy amount of beer, I see. My husband would really get along with you 😆


11 Bec March 16, 2009 at 3:48 pm

sounds like a fun work party!


12 sue March 16, 2009 at 3:54 pm

13 Sarah (Tales of Expansion) March 16, 2009 at 4:20 pm

hahahaha, i love it, matt. you guys are awesome! it’s so fun to get the moment-by-moment contrast between what you are doing and what kath is doing!


14 haya (living and learning) March 16, 2009 at 5:01 pm

looks like a super fun time! i want a rope swing.


15 Roseanna March 16, 2009 at 5:05 pm

Wow, you are too cute– if you don’t mind me saying, Kath’s a lucky girl!


16 K March 16, 2009 at 5:18 pm

Haha!! The rope pictures look like fun!


17 Lauren March 16, 2009 at 5:43 pm

I’m always interested in a new beer game (especially if it involves Magic Hat #9)! Love the rope swing pics.

Fonduuuueee I love you! I could eat melty cheese

Guitar hero wore out its welcome at our place, and Wii has definitely taken over. My fiance is a little too good at mariokart! We don’t play the Wii sports games often enough – maybe tonight?!


18 Meaghen March 16, 2009 at 5:48 pm

Oooh that fondue looks delish.

I love rope swings. One of the best things about being a kid… or an adult I guess… :)


19 laci March 16, 2009 at 7:22 pm

AW, sounds like so much fun- from the beer o the bread to the ROPE SWINGING (!!!) to the adorable little boys! 😀


20 Jane March 16, 2009 at 7:27 pm

Cute post.

You and Kath are the perfect example of how opposites attract!


21 Diana March 16, 2009 at 7:49 pm

I love the bare feet outside! haha. you’re clearly having a good time!


22 Lisa D March 16, 2009 at 7:51 pm

mmm.. magic hat #9 and fondue and bread! If you ever go to burlington, vt you must check out the factory and also the great harvest that’s up there!


23 Organic Girl aka Ashley H March 16, 2009 at 9:56 pm

Wow what a group of people. Look at you! I am sure you are really excited to be apart of such a great group of people. Have fun tomorrow I cant wait to see the pictures!


24 christine March 17, 2009 at 12:28 am

28 Jess March 17, 2009 at 10:15 am

When the “Kath’s” away…

Fondue sounds amazing right now. Nothing like melted cheese with fresh bread.
