Bill and I always enjoy trying local brews when we travel. Alaska has a lot of breweries: we visited the Snow Goose Restaurant/Sleeping Lady Brewery — favorite brews: Urban Wilderness Pale Ale and Fish On IPA. Our favorite at King Street Brewing was the IPA. We had a good conversation with a couple of local patrons who gave […]
Getting to Fort Worth was a trip and a half. We left DFW in our rental car, plotted the route to our hotel in the GPS. Never mind, the powers that be decided that multiple construction projects on spaghetti-like highways with few signs and a broken traffic light along the way were a test to […]
A long day, leaving Franklin shortly after 7am. Easy driving until we hit NYC. Morgan met us on the upper east side and drove to LaGuardia with us, and took the car after dropping us off. So here we are in terminal C (not the new terminal D with pre-check as we had hoped). We […]
On Thursday, our first day out and about, we decided to drive to the Hawaii Kai area to check out Kona Brewing. The early part of the drive through Honolulu is pretty standard hectic city driving. I was talking to Dad on the phone and noticed the signal cut out. All of a sudden we […]
We arrived in Honolulu late Wednesday night, so everything was dark. We were delighted to wake up to this view! We are staying at Aulani, a resort north of the airport on the western side of the island. We had a long trip Wednesday from Philadelphia to Memphis to Los Angeles to Honolulu. The combination […]
Just a few short blocks from the bookstore is Elysian Brewing, a restaurant and brewery. We had their wonderful Men’s Room Red recently at Pony near Morgan’s. So we had a flight of tasters that included a couple of IPAs, a coppery ESB, porter and the Men’s Room Red. Our favorites tonight were Space Dust […]
We had a nice bonus for our visit to Tom Bihn… not far in the same industrial area is Two Beers Brewing. Our server was incredibly knowledgable about their many beers, quite a few of which were hoppy… our favorite was Evolutionary IPA.
After all that book browsing, Bill and I walked around Mountain View and gravitated to the Tied House, home of some wonderful hoppy brews. Fortunately they have a good selection, since their Hoptopia was “out”. Brew houses seem to run out of the good stuff as we approach. But their Athenum was a hoppy delight. […]
