like a baby

I'm sick. Again. I used to never get sick but it's been happening a lot more frequently. What makes it worse is since I'm not accustomed to the cold I act like a child. I fake cry and demand back rubs from my fiance. Wahh wah.

Some photos of our trip to Boston last year.
the Sam Adams tour is definitely something worth doing in Boston
yes it is "that guy" from the commercials


We went on the Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey tour last night, I'm almost always laughably early to anything I sign up for (tours, work but always late to personal events) so we got there a half hour early and sat down in the Rackhouse Pub. We had just eaten Taco Bell (blah I regretted that awful tasting decision immediately) so all we got were pretzel bites (delicious) and beer.  I had Dry Dock Apricot Blonde and Chris had Great Divide Grand Cru. Both beers were awesome for totally different reasons.  If you like fruity beers Apricot Blonde tasted like liquid apricots and Grand Cru (at 11% abv) was impressive.

The tour was pretty simple, we've been on a couple beer tours and it's a fairly similar process, so really we were just there to taste some whiskey. This stuff is 94 proof and therefore had a good burn. She had us try it straight and with a micro-splash of water. The water really changed the flavor... for the better. It was pretty good for whiskey (I'm a tequila girl myself) but this place was definitely another great place to take guests new to Denver.

Stranahan's takes volunteers to label bottles when orders come in for their whiskey, we're signing up in the lottery because well... that would be awesome. You get free beers and whiskey for spending a few hours in their assembly line.

the suburbs

Everyone has been freaking out about them winning at the Grammy's

"So can you understand
why I want a daughter while I'm still young?
I wanna hold her hand 
and show her some beauty 
before this damage is done

But if it's too much to ask, it's too much to ask
then send me a son"

-The Suburbs

I have a hard time deciding if I like this album or Neon Bible better but anyways it's fun.

world beer tour

A few night ago Chris and I started the World Beer Tour at Old Chicago. 2 down, 108 to go.

1. Leinenkugel Sunset Wheat

I was talking about this beer last time I went on the Coors factory (because it's owned by the Coors-Miller-Molson family) so when I saw it on draft I had to have it again.   It's got a fun aftertaste like fruit loops.

2. Snakebite

I got a Guinness-Cider mix for my number two.

Yum what milky foam you have.
