Family, Friends, Great Beer, Road Trip and a Toast to a Beer Legend

Took a couple days off so it was slow on the brewing front, but I did get to taste some good beer. Here's a list of all that was offered over the weekend in various parts of Pennsylvania. Rogue Dead Guy, Rogue Glen Ale from the John's Locker Stock, Weyerbacher Double Simcoe IPA, Yeungling Lager, Bell's Kalamazoo Stout, Bell's IPA, Bell's Porter, Brooklyn Brewery Lager, Spaten Oktoberfest, Penn Oktoberfest, Victory, Dogfish Head and on and on.. As you can see there wasn't a shortage of good beer to choose from. The best part was that I hadn't planned on seeking it out. It just kept showing up :-)

Lots of driving involved this weekend and some incredible weather to do it in. What a great opportunity to take the RX-7 for a spin. I put a bunch of miles on this ol' car and it took it like a champ. Can you see the huge smile on my face cruising through the mountains down country roads, windows down and music flowing? I'm wishing I was still there.

The weekend came to a close with the Michael Jackson Memorial Toast over at The Drafting Room in Exton. Gavin and I headed over and grabbed a Rogue Glen Ale in preparation for the toast. Bryan from The Brew Lounge led it in the absense of Patrick the beer manager. It was low key and respectful and somehow very full of good energy.

Cheers!

All in all, sounds like a nice weekend. Could this inspire an On The Road with Beer Bits2, by Adam? :)

You could grab your boots, as you wrote about previously, and tour the region's breweries...pitching in to help along the way and writing about it!
