Beer Journal

02 Jul

I started this bier journal shortly after we began the adventure. Honestly, the beer experience totally took me off guard and I knew we were onto a new dimension of our journey.

I think we captured about 90% of our beer experiences here. What fun it has been to taste ’em all! Enjoy.

The European Delivery experience was amazing. Driving allowed us to amend our agenda and experience the sounds, flavors, and cultures of nine countries and my world is forever changed.

The question: Will I ever finish those 15 Budweisers (in the can) that are chilling in the beer fridge?

I’m thinking, for now, I’m going to find my way to the local grocery story and see what selections we have in the Belgium or German brew department…. I’m also going to figure out where I can buy some Weisswurst to serve as a snack!

After all, it’s summer here finally and summers in Seattle are the best…. there’s no place like home!




 

Cheers!
