Portland: Deschutes Brewery

When traveling I love to drink local. This time I will admit that we were engrossed in catching up with family and I didn’t take my usual notes. Despite that the food and the beer were both fantastic and we all cleaned our plates. Deschutes Brewery does get busy. We arrived just before the lunch

Wildflyer Mead Co.

Mead is delicious and one of my favorite things to do while traveling is visit local mead, beer, or wine makers. Wildflyer is a new mead company outside of Navasota, TX and it is wonderful. We stopped in at the gift shop first and bought some wonderful honey and seeds to start a pollinator garden
