They had New Belgium Hoptober, and Harvest Moon Pumpkin Ale from Blue Moon Brewing (Coors Brewing). Since I’ve yet to try Harvest Moon, I’d thought I’d …

I’ve been wearing my sandals when I’ve needed to open a beer, and they have been a life saver (ok, that might be extreme, but …

beersongs

While sitting in my office this afternoon, I was starring at my drums and thinking about music. I love music almost as much as I love a good IPA.  Music and beer go hand in hand.  I believe that music is better if you have a beer in hand, and drinking beer is better with some good tunes rocking.
