The other day my wife and I went on a beer tour together and it was one of the coolest experiences we had ever been on and one of the best tours we had ever been on! It was near Asheville, NC at the new Sierra Nevada Brewery. It is all state of the art and really rustic. It was very clean and overall mesmerizing. One of the first things I saw when we walked in was a kegerator, and it was one of the best ones I’ve ever seen. Stainless steel with a thermometer hooked up to it!
However, I was sad to see there was not a mini kegerator on the property…I guess this is because they don’t sell mini kegs! I do think the kegerator they had was a dual tap kegerator which is cool because they could probably fit two kegs in the thing.
One of the coolest things we saw while we were there were the hops. We went in a room full of hops and got to touch and really smell them. You have never in your life smelt anything like this. It was so enriching, and made me really appreciate their beer all the more. I really can’t wait to go back and tour the factory again. I believe right now they are only making a few beers, but when they get up and running they should be making a lot more beers on the property. Oh yeah they are going to have a restaurant too! So you can go eat and get your drink on at the same time. If you go make sure you stop by the gift shop because they have some awesome stuff in there. I got myself a new glass!
So, what was my favorite part???? The tasting! I got to taste a lot of beers. To be honest I’ve had a lot of them before but its always fun to drink again and try new things. Thanks Sierra Nevada for such a nice visit!
I can still remember going to the beach as a teenager and enjoying a cold beer on the ocean with my buddies. We had so much fun growing up and partying together. I miss those times and I think about them often as I get older. We were young, immature, and didn’t have a care in the world!
Now I’m older, a little bit more wiser, but I long for days like that. I long for that carefree feeling. That worryless life. Now I wear a suit everyday and work in a big city. What happened to the simple life? I guess that is what happens when you age. Life gets complicated.
One thing I still enjoy from time to time is a nice cold beer. My favorite is a nice IPA. I particularly like Sierra Nevada’s Torpedo! Nothing beats that hoppy flavor. I guess in my age I’ve gotten more sophisticated in my beer drinking too!
I used to just drink all the cheap stuff out there, and now I got for flavor than the buzz. Sierra Nevada makes some other great beers too. If you are ever in a store and see one I encourage you to pick one up!
I’m not sure if they have keg’s but if they do that would be a fun purchase. Having a nice cold IPA on tap in your home would be a nice luxury. If they do have kegs then I will visit kegerator source for all my kegerator needs. No sense in having a keg without a kegerator…am I right?
What’s cool about Kegerator Source is they also have mini kegerators too. If you are an avid beer drinking and especially a keg beer drinker then you should click here and check out some of their stuff when you get a chance.
Anyways thanks for reading about my childhood rants and my love for beer! All the best to you mates, and cheers!
Before I started riding a motorcycle I was joyless. I had no excitement in my life, and I basically just existed instead of living. It was very sad and I was very sad. That all changed when I finally got a motorcycle. The feeling you get from being on a motorcycle is unlike any feeling I have ever had. There is rush. There is adrenaline. And sometimes there is peace like you have never experienced it.
If you are living in a funk and don’t know how to get out of it then you should think about a change. Would a change of scenery help? Would buying a motorcycle help? Of course a motorcycle is a great investment, but if you want to increase your quality of life you need to make an adjustment. Riding for life is a great way to go.
You must know from the outset that buying a motorcycle is not all there is. There is a lot of gear that you have to purchase with it; like a motorcycle cover. You have to have something that can keep your bike safe. You also need to know how to store your stuff for when you are on the road. There is a lot of stuff to think through.
