Colorado: Riff Raff Brewing

During our exploration of downtown Pagosa Springs the wind began to really pick up so Keltin and I decided to duck into Riff Raff Brewing for a flight while the weather called down. The staff was really friendly and they were happy to chat with us. This was a quick visit for some good beer.

Colorado: Pagosa Brewing Co.

After leaving Chimney Rock National Monument Keltin and I were starving and decided it was time to visit Pagosa Brewing Co. We just sampled a flight but they were all good! Wolf Creek Wheat – a cloudy, refreshing beer Classic Pils – light and slightly citrus Chile Verde Cerveza – it’s spicy green chile beer,

Colorado: The Mr. Grumpy Pants Brewery

This is the brewery I had to try just for the name – and it was totally worth it. The Mr. Grumpy Pants Brewery was actually one of my favorite places, just a little brewery full of sass and good beer (with simple names). I tried the smoked brown and Keltin sampled the stout. The

Colorado: Red Mountain Brewing

Colorado has a plethora of breweries and we actually visited two in Ouray. The first was for lunch, the second because of the name but more about that one later. We enjoyed lunch on the dog friendly patio of Red Mountain Brewing right on the main street. They don’t have a large beer list and

Colorado: Steamworks Brewing Co.

Upon arriving in Durango, we were starving and decided to visit Steamworks Brewing. We sat on the patio and enjoyed the breeze while eating some good food with some fantastic beer. This was the best way to start our vacation. Our flight: Colorado Kolsch – perfect beer for a hot day. Slightly citrus taste at

Meridian Hive Meadery

Part of the reason that I was so excited to visit Austin recently was that it meant I could finally visit Meridian Hive Meadery. I’ve been to a decent number of breweries and a growing list of wineries but not many places make mead but Meridian Hive makes some that is pretty darn good. I

Alstadt Brewery

The second brewery we visited in Fredericksburg was the Alstadt Brewery. It sits outside of town on highway 290, and it looks like a mansion. This place is huge. It has the brewery, bar, restaurant, and who knows what else all in one. Keltin and I didn’t try all of their brews on location. We

Fredericksburg Brewing Company

There are many places to stop and drink along Main Street in Fredericksburg, heck there is a one block wide but several block long stretch where you can drink as you walk along the street. Most of those places are wineries, it makes sense as we are in the heart of Texas Wine Country. But

Weekend Wanderings: Hop & Sting Brewing Company

Keltin and I finally made it out to Grapevine’s craft brewery. With as much as I enjoy a good beer I’m kind of embarrassed about how long it took me to visit this local brewery. Located near the historic Main Street with in door seating and a dog friendly patio this is a great spot

New Mexico: Santa Fe Brewing Company

I realized as I was writing my 2018 year in review post that I had not written about the Santa Fe Brewing Company. For this oversight I’m blaming my busy holiday schedule. After the mass ascension at the balloon fiesta Keltin and I and our friends headed to Santa Fe. I love the square in
