Cincy Beerfest

The other weekend Lionel and I went with a group of friends to the Cincy Winter Beerfest in downtown Cincinnati.  It was a lot if fun and I ran into quite a few people I hadn't seen in a long time, since high school or college.

With your admission you got to sample 25 different beers and they had over 300 beers from around the country and the world to choose from.  Some of them were pretty standard like Coors and Blue Moon but mist of them were harder to find microbrews and more exclusive beers.  Though I stayed away from a lot of the European stuff that isn't common in the US but that I drank often in France, like 1664.  Probably the most interesting beers that I tasted were a tangerine beer and a watermelon beer.  I don't think I would drink either one again, but it was nice to get to try something very different.

Testing

I know it has been forever since I've posted and it's kinda lame to have my first post after a long break be this short, but I think I have FINALLY, after 2 months of trying, figured out how to use the blogger app on my "new" phone.

So here are a few quick pictures of Rasteau relaxing on his new favorite chair to see if this actually works and I promise more posts and pics to come very soon if I can actually use blogger on my phone since I also can't seem to figure out how to connect my phone to my computer and access my pictures that way (clearly a smartphone was just too much for me, I'm just not very technologically savvy). I really hope this works!
