Full Sail represents on President's Day

Full Sail represents on President’s Day

Last month I had a chance to read a post from Jeff Alworth over at Beervana that helped me do something that blog posts don’t always do: It helped me learn something.  Even better was that when given some time, the comment section filled up with even more useful information.  I really like Jeff’s work over at Beervana and it’s a daily stop-by for me to see what kind of knowledge he’s dropping.  Give it a look-see sometime if you want to learn something.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

IMG_0865 Whether you are celebrating the landing of cupid’s arrow or the feast of a mysterious saint or whether you prefer to observe Galentine’s Day, I hope you are doing so with a beer. Nothing better than raising a pint of lovely craft beer to toast your friends, your mom, your partner, your daughter’s birthday, your own awesomeness…you name it.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

It’s not always rainy and cold in February, apparently.  Today was damn fine day to down a pint outside.  We hit up Gigantic while the sun was out and finished up at Cascade.  Gotta love the winter weather we were blessed with this weekend.  I know Punxsutawney Phil predicted an early spring today, but I know better.  We’ll be back to dreary skies and cold temps in no time.  If you live in Portland, get out and enjoy it before its gone.

Tonight's dinner...served with beer, of course

Tonight’s dinner…served with beer, of course

I’m back, baby!  The self-imposed hiatus is over.  I really don’t have a great reason for staying gone so long, I just needed to see if it could be done.  A full month without beer?  Check.  Ready to drink a shit-ton of beer this month?  Also check. Continue reading
