The WBLM Morning Show had our annual meeting of the minds today at The Porthole here in Portland with Jim Koch, founder of Boston Beer Company, the makers of Samuel Adams beer!

This was our office this morning:

Not bad, right? Captain and I spent the morning tasting beer and hearing the stories of their origins with Jim. The Porthole is always a great host and it was a gorgeous morning. Thanks Beth and Georgia!


If you're going to drink beer for breakfast it's good to put something in your tummy, the Porthole's Lobster Benedict and super crunchy home fries went perfectly with my Sam Adams tasting.

Jim spent time talking to fans about his favorite subject, BEER, and held up his end as an honorary member of the WBLM Morning Show! Those bottles are not decoration, the tasting was on!
