Daddy Daughter Days — I was born and raised in Germany, so I grew up with great beers. My dad’s favorite weekend hobby was and still is going to his favorite pub. Once I was old enough, he pretty much took me every time. Then I met my husband and moved to California. I missed my weekend getaways with my dad and started to introduce my husband to craft beer. When we first moved to California in 2005, craft breweries weren’t that common yet but exploded in the last couple years, especially in the Central Valley. Now our favorite weekend getaways are those little breweries. On my trips home to Germany which unfortunately aren’t that often, my dad still takes me to his favorite pub, or we sit around the fire in the backyard and just catch up on life. Missing those days a lot.
