Entrance to Colorado National Monument
Traveling solo can sometimes be lonely. The isolation alone causes many to give up. It is one of the reasons I travel with my dogs. Although I may not have a human companion, I do have two furry friends who love adventure as much as I do. They help push through the feeling of loneliness, as well as giving me someone to talk to. Granted I look like a crazy person driving around talking to my dogs, but we all have our quarks. Continue reading
Horsefly Brewing Montrose Colorado
Typically I am a fan of walking into a brewery and having it packed full of people. It is usually a sign that they have good beer. On a Wednesday night in April I wasn’t overly thrilled when I walked into a full house at Horsefly Brewing because the only seating left was outside. YIKES! Colorado in April. Yeah, it wasn’t warm. But there was beer to be had, so I braved the elements for you, because it’s the least I could do. I’m nice like that. Continue reading
Two Rascals Brewing Montrose Colorado
Located in a historic brick building complete with a ghost sign of J.F Warren Storage is Two Rascals Brewing in Montrose Colorado. Once I stepped inside I looked for a place to sit. There I was greeted by two helpful guys at the bar, telling me I could sit anywhere, except there and pointed at a random table and chuckled. I gave them an eyebrow raise and a slight smile, letting them know I found them only slightly funny. I contemplated just dropping my purse on the table they had pointed at and plopping myself down. Really what were they going to do? Continue reading
Curecanti National Recreation Area Colorado
It was day 8 of our spring trip and 2400 miles (3862 km) had been driven in those eight days. It was time to spend a day for the dogs. The trip had taken its toll on all of us. We were cooped up and ready to stretch our legs. Fortunately day 8 had us visiting Curecanti National Recreation Area in Colorado. The main reason I chose the national recreation spot was its affinity for dogs. Every trail is dog friendly as well as the three reservoirs that make up the recreation area. Continue reading
Three Barrel Brewing Del Norte Colorado
When I arrived to Del Norte Colorado I was alerted to the fact that at any given moment Colorado would remind me of just how unpredictable she was. My day had started off sunny and warm, so I dressed accordingly, shorts and a short sleeve shirt. A logical pairing on a warm day. But then later that same day I sat looking out the window of Three Barrel Brewing to sideways blowing snow. Yes, Colorado you’ve proven your point. I should have never dared to wear shorts in April, regardless of how the day started out. Continue reading
San Luis Valley Brewing
It always perplexes me when I am at a micro brewery and I see someone order a macro brew from one of the big three. And the dude didn’t just do it once, but three times he ordered a Coors Light. I thought about asking him if there was something wrong with him, but I kept my questions to myself. Mostly because it meant more handcrafted beer for me and clearly there was something wrong with him. Who orders watered down crap beer anyways? Continue reading
Earthship Visitor Center
A few months ago it was announced that the Great Barrier Reef had died. It may have been a little premature but nonetheless it is well on its way to being destroyed. Just like many things on Earth, things are being destroyed. Temperatures are raising, glaciers are melting, tornado and hurricane storms are more intense and yet very few are doing anything about it. Continue reading
The Paws For Beer Advent Calendar 2016
I am going to be totally honest. Trying to find 24 new beers for my annual advent calendar is getting really hard. In fact I thought this year I had 24 totally new beers only to find out when I checked some of the beers in on Untappd, I had already had several of these beers previously. Oh well, c’est la vie.
Here is the Paws For Beer Advent Calendar 2016
Boomer and Jovi ready for adventure!
Another travel year in the books! Here is our Paws For Beer Travel Round Up 2016.
Our 2016 travel schedule started early this year with a January trip to Thayne Wyoming to pick up the newest addition to our family, Jovi. Jovi had been patiently waiting for about a month for us to come and get her from the shelter she had been at for about 6 months. With a break in the weather Boomer and I took a quick three day trip to pick her up. I could not have asked for a more perfect match for Boomer. Jovi and Boomer are the best of friends. Which made the treacherous drive through a snowy Montana and Idaho in January worth it! Continue reading
Rogue Ales Public House Astoria Oregon
Before I left on my trip, just as I stepped out the door from work, I said to my co-workers “I will never taste the Beard Beer”. Continue reading
