Two Beer Dudes Brewery Hops for July 24th Weekend

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

After over two weeks of planning the plan is in place and I await the brewery hop with great anticipation. My wife has said she wants to leave on Friday by 9:00am so we can fit everything in. Yes, the wife is ready to go too!

So we will start off for New Glarus, WI and will restock with beer from New Glarus Brewing Co which has already been a brewery hop. Also, I have had requests from friends to pick up some Spotted Cow and various other flavors. While visiting New Glarus, I will give Tom a call from Lake Louie Brewing to see if there is chance they can fit me in their busy schedule for a look see. If not, I understand.

The hop will continue in Arena or onto Middleton (near Madison) for Capital Brewery and a date for a 3:30pm tour. air jordan 1 femmes After this tour it will be time to check out Star Liquor (suggested by the owners of Furthermore Brewery in Spring Green) to pick up some Furthermore as well as some other beers not distributed in Illinois.

The end of day one will bring us to the hotel and some fun in the pool. Hopefully a good reward for the kids after a long day of travel. Day two will start off with a little more swimming followed by breakfast and a trip east.

Sprecher Brewing Company in Glendale (near Milwaukee) will be our destination for a 1:00pm tour. We will follow this up with a tour of Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee at 3:00pm to finish off another busy and final day.

The ride home will be filled of thoughts of all the liquid goodness I have ahead of me to taste and review. Enjoy!

New Beer From a Traveling Neighbor

Monday, July 20th, 2009

My neighbor from across the way recently traveled through Pennsylvania and New Jersey for a family wedding. Of course I had to impose and give them a list of potential beers from breweries that I can’t get in the Chicagoland area. The list was brief but I was trying for some beers that were from little breweries.

After my neighbor, Miles, arrived home I eagerly awaited the ring of the doorbell that signaled the arrival of the liquid goodness he was able to score on the trip. He brought me over a six pack with Magic Hat Circus Boy (can get in the area, here is the beer review), Weyerbacher QUAD, and Michigan Brewing Celis Grand Cru (one Big Sky Summer Honey was thrown in since there were only five beers). air jordan 14 Not what I expected but I am gracious nonetheless that he took time out his family vacation to try and get me some beer. Thank you Miles.

Every story has a funny side though. This one has is tragic. As Miles was packing up the vehicle for the return trip, pushed some extra belongings from the inside of the vehicle towards the back, and, of course, pushed all the beer onto the ground. Yikes!

Now it becomes easy to see why he only came back with five beers and three of those had scratches on them from where they had bounced on the asphalt. I guess I was lucky to even get those five 🙂

What have I learned from the second friend/neighbor that has traveled looking for beer: I need to give them specific instructions if they can’t find what I am interested in, don’t bother. Enjoy!
