Bad News, but Good Beer

By now you are probably worried about me.  You should be.  I’ve been laid up for a week.  No work.  No biking.  No walks wandering for wildflowers.  No staring at her Majesty's boundless waves.  No stopping in for a pint at Brickside Brewery (just below my porch).  Just me and my puppy laying down for most of the day.  Happy summer!

Remember that video from the last post where I went over the handlebars on my bike?  (If not, you should really watch it with sound.  It’s hilarious.)  Well that incident, along with many others, lead to my current condition.  I am now able to walk carefully with a cane.

This is not meant to be a pity party.  This is simply why you haven’t heard from me.  I just checked my email for the first time in a week today! 

But never fear.  I am getting better and better every day.  Woo hoo!  So life is good.

It is also now quite different with a micro-brewery below my house.  Seriously.  My parking lot is their parking lot.  So far they have been seeing some decent business (judging by the number of car doors I hear outside).  And the beer is delicious.  I had the luxury of sampling each flavor the day before I couldn’t move.  They were only 4 once tasters, now don’t go getting the wrong idea.

Right now they are serving Walters Weissen, Fine Day Pale Ale, UP IPA and (my fave) Park Bench Porter.  If you are in the area, please stop in for a pint at Brickside Brewery, across from the general store.

Hopefully I’ll have some fun outdoor things to tell you soon!  Take care, and be safe!

    Thought you have been awfully quiet. Kept looking for new news and this isn't good. Did you fracture your pelvis? Whatever you broke get better. It would seem they would walk you up a brew!

    Take care
