268.365.2014 Autumn Brew Review

I signed us up to volunteer early today so that it would force me up and moving from the jet lag. It was the Autumn Brew Review and we worked for Finnegan’s. We hauled kegs, ice and help unload trucks all morning. It was pretty fun and we got free entry and started drinking right when it opened at 1! First taste – Deschutes Black Butte XXVI!

267.365.2014 30+ Hours

We headed out to the airport Thursday night at 11:30 pm. And we arrived in Minneapolis at 7 pm… 30 hours later! It’s amazing what some time zones can do.

We left Banaglore at 3 am and landed in Frankfurt. Lufthansa was an amazing airline and I would fly them again.

IMG_7931.JPG I FaceTimed with Dave and he was at MMZ’s. So Zar-Bar and I got to have a little chat.
