Home from a 5,000 Mmle road trip. Too bad it couldn't count all those miles since it spent time in hotel rooms and not sightseeing.
Shared with friends Chicago on the way home from Salt Lake City.
Utah 4%abv law beer, but the sample tasted like a good lawn mowing beer.
Double dry hopped NEIPA with lots of tropical fruit and the smoothness of oats and lactose.
Poolside from our private balcony at Mountain Thunder Lodge in Breckenridge.
Really a shandy, but who cares when it's 90° outside.
Hotel beer for the first night.
Tomorrow the journey begins.

Balm for some weary muscles clearing out what winter killed
Passed to Ann C. after enjoying delicious smoked meats from the Smoky Bones food truck.
I really did just clean it and then filled it with the porter at Liberty. It wasn't cleaned with Porter. Stupid website.
The really hot day at school means that THIS growler won't get passed until it's cleaned and filled again.
An American wit with orange. Decided to stop on the way home from our awesome weekend in Chicago and take some Greenbush love home.
I got housekeeping at the hotel to give me a small bit of soap to use to clean it. (And the date is wrong for the Paw Paw filling. It was the 23rd - BEFORE the enjoying.)
Stopped by Paw Paw Brewing Company and liked the Citra Melon. They filled it, but had to put their sticker on it - like they put on everything - even people! Somehow it adds to the story.
Woohoo! Complimentary room upgrade at Swissôtel in downtown Chicago! Beautiful views and a spacious room. Oh, and good beer, too.
Fort Street Brewery refused to fill it. Bummer.
Enjoyed and ready for filling tomorrow after a thorough cleaning at the Green House on the beach.
Got it from Ann C. at the Diva 3rd anniversary party. Took it to Grand Haven with Jenn F. and shared it with friends at a kite festival.
Passed at Arbor Brewing Company while enjoying the first pouring of the Unite Pale Ale. Enjoy, Patti!
This is to thank Patti for writing such an awesome article & taking such great pix of the International Women's Collaboration Brew day back on March 8. Enjoy! =)
Given that this growler previously had a Pomengranate Berlinerweiss in it, I cleaned it with two different forms of industrial-grade caustic, acid, a five-minute boil, & sanitizer. No Lactobacillus or Brettanomyces here!
Thanks to Ashanti, we got to enjoy a growler of the tasty Pomegranate Berlinerweiss we brewed for Rat Fest. This was after our hard work brewing for the International Women's Collaboration Brew day. Thanks, Ashanti!
To Angie Williams on the day she was brewing for the first International Women’s Collaboration Brew at Arbor Brewing! Cheers!
Diva Ratfest Brew - second posting the first I listed under 2012.
Diva Ratfest Brew
Figured it had the day to dry before filling it tonight. Nothing like cleaning a growler at 5:30a The spice was strong but very yummy!
Unexpected invitation to a friend's house for a bit of drama sharing and brought the jug to enjoy. Beer and evening with a close friend - perfect. Going over in pjs even better.
