Blast from the Past

An official high school friend of DFTB opened a brewery in Chicago.  Obviously DFTB had to check it out.  Art History Brewing was definitely worth the trip.  And worth a new rule for DFTB–if a friend opens a brewery, you must go.

Style and Substance: Art History Brewing

Fire, Fire on the Mountain…well…nearby, anyway…

What do you like to do when it’s 100 degrees?  DFTB decided to go have sushi and smoked beer.  Outside.  And it turned out to be one of the best evenings I’ve had in a long while.

At Long Last–Success!

DFTB’s dogged persistence has finally paid off!  OK, I happened to check Facebook at the right time, but no matter–success!  I completed my long-time quest and scored some Heady Topper.

Summer’s Here…Briefly…

In between snowfalls, DFTB made it over to Romero’s for the perfect combination of an 80 degree day and Bell’s Oberon.  It’s the ideal beer to ring in the warm weather…or the promise of warm weather to come.  Sooner or later.  Anyway, when the warmth does return, find some Oberon.  You won’t regret it.

DFTB Is Back!!!!!

The pandemic had DFTB down, but never out.  Now that the DFTB household is fully vaccinated, DFTB is back better than ever.  Well…at least back.  I’ll work on better… 

In the meantime, do yourself a favor and go find a Comrade Superpower.

Vote!

DFTB has been a bit stumped.  This election is…well…it’s just not funny.  Hopefully it will be when we look back at it, but for now–nope.  DFTB wanted to do its part, though, so here’s a little PSA for anyone thinking about sitting this one out.

Too Close to Home

This is a bit of a different approach for me.  The Boulder Daily Camera published my op-ed on gun violence.  I can’t say I hope you like it, but I do hope it makes you think.  Too Close to Home

Election Survival…Wine?

Need an antidote for the racist dog whistles sounding out this campaign season?  DFTB has the wine–wait–what?  Wine?  Yes, wine for the job.  Infinite Monkey theorem has the perfect drink to wash that distaste away.

Stem Ciders

DFTB is drinking…cider?  Yes, yes I am.  And it turns out I like cider.  Who knew?  Check out DFTB’s trip to the new Stem Cider taproom in DFTB’s hometown of Lafayette.
