It was a chilly day in the winter of ought-four. The journey to work was made impossible due to ice and inch thick covering my motor vehicle. During the day we kept warm drinking Bloody Marys down the street at the diner and by washing down pitchers of cheap lager at the bowling alley across the street.

Best of Both Worlds

I’ve mentioned before how my gym is a beer friendly place. On Friday afternoons, we play basketball for an hour or two and usually go our separate ways. Right next to the court is a grassy area with benches, horseshoe pits and a boccie court. What better place to have a BBQ on a hot day?

It’s Father’s Day, so I figured I would honor one of the brews still on the shelf that might be considered (among many) as a forefather of the craft brewing industry.  (more…)

Thank God It’s Friday

Fridays are always a slow day at work.  My mind is always more on what’s going on over the weekend than on the job at hand.  It doesn’t help that the boss has left for Hawaii and my coworkers and I were just standing around talking about basketball.  “Steve, where’s the beer?”  “I’ll be right back,” and he was out the door.  (more…)
