Beer Break!

We're back from our whirlwind graduation/Christmas/visit extravaganzapalooza. Wow! What a whirlwind!

We did take a short break for a brewery tour though. My husband has been home-brewing for about a year now so it only seemed fitting to go on a tour of a brewery that started in a basement: New Belgium Brewery (makers of Fat Tire, etc).

I'm pretty sure he loved it.

NBB_Equip

Which is to say he was entirely jealous of their equipment...even though the equipment was bigger than our house. Details.

I was, to be honest, slightly more enthralled with the copious amount of art...and could have spent much more time looking at all of it.

NBB_Lighting

Because really, where else in the world could you get away with beer lighting, or tables loaded with hops and empty bottles?

And that, my friends, is where the pictures end. Not another one. We were that busy! Funny though, after a weekend that busy it makes the craziness of Christmas seem rather calm, which is a surprisingly nice feeling.

So now on to peaceful baking and relaxed wrapping. Hope your weeks are productive but enjoyable!

Ah, what fun! We tried to go to Boulevard Brewery in October, but they were booked up for two months. I've thought about making beer because I make wine and champagne, but Hubs adores IPA and frankly, that seems a little too complicated for my little nugget!
So love the bikes!
