My wife and I Have been visiting craft breweries for over thirty years, it’s common to strike up conversations about this place or that sharing our interest in beer, through this, we have made some great friends some more temporary than others but a few of those friends we have now known for years and still manage to meet up for a beer once in a while.
This is the majority of our Growler collection, 30 years in the making – there could be many more but we’ve learned to restrain ourselves. We also have stickers from breweries, well over one hundred stickers that only count if we have physically visited the brewery.
