Riding The Washington Backcountry Discovery Route

The best part about living in the PNW is having an endless supply of public land and outdoor recreation readily available.  It’s amazing to be able to go from downtown Seattle to an empty hiking trail deep in the wilderness in less than an hour’s drive… depending on traffic.  I feel incredibly fortunate to have… Read more »

Our Take On Indie Seal Adoption Rates

The Brewers Association introduced its independent craft brewer seal about a year ago and recently Brewbound wrote an article about adoption rates in the U.S. A bit of a recap here: The BA created the seal to help craft beer enthusiasts to easily differentiate between the independent brewers (like us) and beer produced by non-craft… Read more »

live by the sword…

If you have paid any attention to the craft beer industry recently, you’ve probably seen articles about how the four horsemen of the craft-apocalypse are coming: hop (and ingredient) shortages, brewery buyouts, distributor challenges, market saturation, etc.  Everyone with a blog and a thirst for clicks seems to have some special insight to an impending… Read more »

Easy Gameday Brats From a Guy Who Can’t Cook

Getting started Nearly my entire family is from Wisconsin- a place where football was invented as an excuse to miss church and personally explore gluttony.  I remember visiting Wisconsin as a kid and seeing the potluck my grandparents put on for a Packers game, thinking “Are we having another Thanksgiving?”  No, we weren’t.  We were… Read more »

Sibling Rivalry

Growing up with two older brothers meant that I was constantly fighting an uphill battle to out do them in anything I could.  It’s not like we were ultra-competitive;  we just never wanted to lose at anything.  To this day, everything that we do is a competition.   About 2 years ago, my middle brother… Read more »

it’s not a dependancy, it’s the holidays.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The days get shorter, the beers get darker, and you can basically eat whatever you want for the next 2 months and call it “bulking.”It’s also a time when people get together and fight seasonal depression by reflecting on what they’re thankful for. Joyous friends, family,… Read more »
