Brew Tour 2020

I guess the new year is here, ready or not. I suppose I am obligated to come up with some resolutions? If so I had better get on it, because I don’t have any yet. Somebody sent me this list the other day:

  1. Cut down trees in the woods and hand make a log cabin couch.
  2. Attend Harvard business school stage 1.
  3. Read 24 books. Business, phycology/sociology, relationships, communication, negotiation, leadership.
  4. Attend MIT Sloan business school stage 2.
  5. Start a new company, Water-Core inc. to provide shower systems to homeless in cities.

Uh yeah, wow. Mine probably won’t be quite so… “ambitious.” Try not get fired? Remember to feed the dogs? More along those lines. If I DID make a list, one of them would probably be “visit some new local breweries.” Check that one off, we did that Saturday. Gee, this resolution stuff is easy. We used to go to the breweries around here every now and then, but haven’t been to any in a long time. Not in 2019, I am sure. So, I wrote up a little trip plan and we headed out around noon Saturday. First stop was Burning Barrel, just down the hill in Rancho Cordova. I didn’t NOT like it, but honestly my favorite thing we tried there was the pizza from the food truck outside. The brews weren’t bad, but the pizza was great. Next stop was Claimstake, also in Rancho. Most in the group insisted we’d all been there before, but I don’t recall that being the case. One of the benefits of having a poor memory, everything is new. OK, it DID look a little familiar, but then again they all look pretty much the same. From there, it was on to two of my favorites, New Glory and then Device. My goal was trying only new places, but then again I like sticking to the known good spots so I mixed these in. Can’t go wrong with either of them, I definitely liked them better than the first two. All in all, a successful day; The group agreed we need to plan another tour, in the opposite direction. We’ll see if we ever get around to it.
