Beers, Toads, and Backyard Beer Gardens

There’s a lot more to Golden, Colorado than the Coors Brewery.  There a cute little historic district full of places to eat, drink, and shop on Washington Avenue.  There is the Colorado School of Mines, one of the top engineering and applied science universities in the country.  There is also quite a lot of outdoor recreational spots, such as Clear Creek, where you can spend the day tubing, kayaking, or even panning for gold.  I’m […]

Bald Mountain and Twisted Pine

So if there is one downfall to drinking a lot of good craft beer, it has to be the little extra poundage it can add to your midsection if you’re not careful.  Yep, the good old beer belly.   It’s a never-ending battle to be able to consume lots of yummy craft beers, without causing too much damage on the scale.  This is why when we planned a little brewery excursion to Boulder on Sunday July […]
