So I showed up to Mac’s house on Sunday half way through the Vikings and Packers game. Yeah, we should be watching the game, but this year the Vikings are doing so poorly, I just don’t the constitution to watch them lose another game or have an extremely poor performance. When I left my home, the score was 7-3 Packers and it was getting close to the end of the 2nd quarter. So yeah, let’s go make beer!
When I showed up at Mac’s house he had all the tools and ingredients we would need to brew the beer. The beer we were going to make was called Dead Ringer IPA that was a kit that Mac had bought at Northern Brewery
If you know anything about me, I love craft beer. I enjoy all the different flavors and types of beer that is out there. And typically I would rather just pick up a six pack at my local liquor store or go to my favorite watering hole for a good pint or two rather than brew my own. I know there is a lot of work. I use to brew my own wine until I discovered wine gave me one hell of a headache. Now I avoid the stuff except on very special occasions.
So a quick recap. Dee and I signed up for the Warrior’s Dash here in Minnesota on September 8th. And yes, it is almost July and I have started any training at all.
Recently, Dee and I were at the River’s Edge Fest in downtown St. Paul. As I was people watching at all the interesting Minnesotans, I saw a number of men that were my age or older and for the most part they were in good shape. A number of them were throwing around a Frisbee or playing hackey sack. I think it hit me then that I need to get in better shape.
