Well it is August, and many people who are currently employed are taking vacations. I just got back from 5 days up north, and Jim is currently in Milwaukee with his family, visiting with my sisters and my folks. He will then escort our mother back here to Idaho for my Son’s wedding. Unfortunately Dad is too sick (long standing heart problems) to make the trip. But there will be fun, and there will be drinking!
This weekend I will be taking it a little easy. See when Jim and I get together there seems to be enough drinking for a small army. So in anticipation of his visit next week I will be taking it a little easy. Probably just hit a couple of brews I have in the fridge. I have a Spring Beer from Ninkasi that I haven’t got to yet, so I think that will be consumed this weekend, along with more of the Four Roses Small batch that I cracked open a couple nights ago.
I know Jim will be doing at least one brewery tour when he is in Wisconsin. He will have to stop in at Lakefront Brewery and probably get some Bridge Burner on tap. He loves that stuff. He might be able to get a pigtail brew too from one of their Bottling tanks…We’ll see. Perhaps he will be able to get some of their Oak Aged Cherry Lambic while he is there too. Let’s hope so.
So how about you? Headed out on vacation? Perhaps you are already on vacation and just checking in on the blog? What are you drinking? Any brewery or distillery tours planned? As usual let us know in the comments.
