You may be asking WHY IS MY LIFE LIKE A BEER FEST?!?!?!

I tweeted & facebooked the other day saying my life is a beer fest, I do feel that way only because:
It’s not just because I drink alot of good beer, its because beer fests USUALLY have everything I enjoy, family, good friends, good vibe, sun, fun, music, good food, enjoying the fruit of the labor of another person or crew, the enjoyment and satisfaction of it all…
So in that matter I feel my life is a beer fest, yeah it has some bad beers, some broken glasses, some bitters and sours but overall it’s hoppy goodness that is good til that last drop!!!!!!

On the drive out saw this old truck with a slew of rad motorcycles…
Check it!

Here’s Greg Koch (pronounced like Cook) and his signature #GregFace my weak face, he sprung it on me… He’s CEO & Co-Founder of Stone Brewing, congrats Greg… from a wee lad growing up in Poway, I’ve seen Stone over the years grow from an Arrogant Bastard straight out the gate to a behemoth in the beer world, in ironically a humble attitude with an in your face hoppyness…
So Stoked and proud of Stone Brewing & all Craft Brewers and breweries across the globe and especially San Diego!!!!
