Last year, we totally missed the memo on Philly Beer Week and didn't get out to partake in the festivities until the final weekend. Glad we did because we had the chance to meet a
Best conversation we had during our single Beer Week night out was with a guy from the Breckenridge Brewery in Colorado where we had stopped on vacation a few summers ago. Love their Agave Wheat. I believe their Avalanche Ale is pretty popular as well.
Turns out he was a South Jersey native who dropped everything on a whim and moved to Colorado to help a friend "get started." Some 20 years later, he's still there. Gotta love the randomness and of course the Jersey connection.
(P.S. If you need a good summer vacation idea, go to Colorado. Denver, Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park, horseback riding, coal mine tours, Coors Brewery, Frontier Days in Cheyenne, WY, white water rafting... all amazing. It was our favorite trip to date and highly recommended.)
Looking forward to this year's Beer Week - any 22nd&Philly fans want to plan a Beer Week outing? Can you say, guest post??
