Some other beer highlights of 2015

  • I toured the Samuel Adams brewery for the first time!
  • I took up homebrewing, but not in my home.  My friend Mike got a Mr. Beer kit and we and other fathers have been experimenting with different varieties at what is now called the Daddy Brew Club.
  • I visited the most excellent Whetstone Station brew pub in Brattleboro, Vermont.
