Midwest Beer Travels

Dr. B and I toured 13 more Midwest breweries in the last couple weeks and we thought you might like to see a few pictures of our adventures. We had a too great time visiting old friends and meeting new ones… is that even possible? (probably not.)

Fall Tattoos and Craft Beer Are Here

Dr. B and I love fall more than anything else and we love to celebrate by driving through the Rocky Mountains to see all of the colors.
