Feet up to help my sore back, orange juice (with vodka and ginger liqueur) to help my cold. I’m ready for three days of sfa.
…but it wasn’t a great one either.
Keith has to go do something at the house, so I tagged along to Stratford. Chocolate, good beer and excellent Thai food are all great, but better when Keith is around.
What else was I going to title a photo of my trouble-free Hibiscus Sour transfer today?
Playing mad scientist as I blend orange zest and sour cherries with our barrel aged dark lager
Stopped in to get brewing supplies for the pilot system, stayed for a few very delicious beer, a bahn mi from next door, and a great visit with Rob and Kat.
Somedays it’s about doing the things I’d planned. Other days, it’s about wine in the sunshine, swimming in the sunshine, and getting a headache from the sunshine.
Note to self: bring a hat.
It’s been a while since I went to the Hart House Beer Festival. Side Launch was pouring this year, so I took advantage of vendor pricing and took Katherine.
Gone was the CIUT DJ with his very cool chill beats. The food was good, but the selection was not nearly as extensive as I remember, and the best thing I ate was barbecued vegan sausage.
If this had been my first one, it would have been ok, but was found very lacking when compared to the others I’d attended. I doubt I’ll be back.
It was very nice of the two women to ask if I wanted to join them. But solo was better today.
Ginger cider at Beaver Valley Cider on a sunny afternoon is the perfect start to a weekend.
