One beer at the end of a great day:

Killing time on a beautiful spring afternoon at the train station near Hannover:

In Belgium on vacation:

Weekend on the river in northern Wisconsin:

  • Leinenkugels Red
  • Leinenkugels Creamy Dark (after sunset with a campfire)

In Minneapolis (or Portland), watching a local bike derby under pouring rain in October with empties as the course marker:

  • PBR

Reading William Gibson

  • Tsingtao

  1. I loves me some PBR tallboys but if I was in Portland, that’s the last beer I’d be drinking! They have so many microbrews to chose from that you can’t get here.

  2. I saw Rush River while dining out the other night. I REALLY wanted to try it, but…well…the labels are kind of ugly.

    I know, I know…

    WILL try it next time I’m out!
