The Art of the Mug

Local ceramics artist Jay Howe exhibited some of his unique barware last night at the Corner Brewery, for whom he makes personalized Mug Club mugs, and gave a live demonstration of the process behind mug-making.  I arrived too late for the live demonstration, but just in time to try some of the last of the small-batch Rat Pad beer Jay brewed for the event. The slightly smoky, well balanced yet fairly light-bodied porter went excellent with the roasted turkey dinner plate I had.  (Kudos to Mike O'Brien for roasting the birds to perfection.)

In fact, I believe there is still some of that turkey left...
