Exploring the Off-Centered World of Dogfish Head

Last week many in the craft beer industry were shocked by the news of the Boston Beer Company and Dogfish Head Brewery merger. Certainly, you’ve seen the news and read the reaction comments and stories from every beer geek and their brother. Everyone has an opinion, including us, but you’ll be happy to know that isn’t what this story is about. This story is about our love of Dogfish Head, and last summer when we […]

Come With Us to the 2018 Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference

Next week we’ll be heading to the East Coast to attend our 4th Beer Bloggers & Writers Conference. This year the event is being held in Loudoun County, Virginia, with excursions that offer experiences in Maryland, Delaware, and Richmond, Virginia. It’s an incredible time, and although we wish we could bring y’all with us in our suitcase but sadly, we can’t. (Blame the airlines and their crazy luggage fees.) Fortunately, you CAN experience the fun […]

Beer Travel: Exploring the Past, Present and Future of Milwaukee Breweries

Don’t call it a comeback, because the brewery culture never left Milwaukee. That was our takeaway from the 2017 Beer Bloggers and Writer’s Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mark Garthwaite, Executive Director of the Wisconsin Brewers Guild made that reference when discussing the local beer industry. Sure, they may be late bloomers when it comes to putting a craft brewery on every corner, especially when compared to a state like Colorado. However, nobody can dispute that […]

Exploring Florida: Beers, Beaches, and Family

Jeff and I just returned from a whirlwind trip to Florida for a quick vacation. We were lucky to spend several days in the Sunshine State to visit family and enjoy a little fun in the sun. It was a long overdue trip to visit my parents, and the time went by way too fast. However, we did manage to sneak in some time to further explore the beer scene, at least in the areas we […]

Exploring Florida’s Craft Beers

In case you noticed, we’ve been on a bit of a sabbatical from the blog the past several weeks. We took a small break from writing – first to take a trip to visit family in Florida, and then to catch up from the work that piled up while we were away. The extra catch-up work was totally worth it, though! We had fun spending time with family in Florida… too much time goes by between visits. While […]

Drunk and Disorderly in Las Vegas

Thanks to Frontier Airlines and their rock-bottom, no-frills prices, we took another trip to Las Vegas this week.  It was an inexpensive spur of the moment trip that came at just the right time, getting us out of the daily rainstorms in Colorado and into the blazing hot sun of Nevada.  It was fabulous to spend days at the pool and nights knocking back drinks at the craps table.  After three days of excessive drinking, […]

Big Easy Beers

Last Friday was the Winter Brew Fest here in Denver but we didn’t attend.  We didn’t even consider buying tickets!  Now if you don’t think this sounds like us, you’d be right.  However, we just returned from one of the few cities in the U.S. that embraces drinking even more than Denver — New Orleans.  We took a trip to the Crescent City with 8 of our friends for a long-weekend getaway.  The trip was […]

Brews and Booze in Las Vegas

There were no Colorado breweries visited last week, but for good reason. We decided to ditch Denver for a long weekend in Las Vegas! Las Vegas is a favorite getaway of ours; in fact, we love Vegas so much that we got married there in 2005. But for all the fun and good times we have in Las Vegas, there is one thing we don’t usually indulge in much here, and that’s beer. It’s not […]
