Same old thang
Yep, I’m still going strong! I have been busy enjoying the outdoors and the summer weather, so I have neglected keeping up with this blog. I really don’t see that changing for the next month or two, either, but I will post occasionally just to reaffirm my existence.
On to some news: The Livery will be celebrating their tenth year this weekend with special bottle releases and other events. They are the first micro-brewery that I went to in this area, and the first mug club that I joined. Check them out if your in the Benton Harbor area.
Speaking of mug clubs; I joined another one at a brand new brewery in Berrien Springs. Cultivate opened their doors just a few, short weeks ago and are definitely worth a stop on the beer trail. They are located in the middle of wine country, so there should be something for both the wine and beer lovers. If you join their mug club it’s only $50 for a life time membership and you get a really cool ID, too!
I can’t believe that another week has passed with hardly a peep by me. Oh, well. It’s Monday so there’s nothing for me to fret, especially with 1/2 priced groups A & B beers for mug-club members at Greenbush.
No, I haven’t fallen off the edge of the earth. Yes, I have ignored my blog for a week, but am still on track. And, Yes! It’s Monday, which is now not quite as good as in the past Let me explain, although there’s not much to be said. Yes, Greenbush still has specials for mug club members, half off groups A & B beers in case you didn’t remember. Tapistry, though, doesn’t have $2 TierIII beer on Mondays, starting last Monday. Bummer! But I’ll sojourn on the road to daily beer.
No excuses, I just forgot. Now, let’s move on to today, which happens to be the best day of the month. I know this is going to sound like a broken record, and that makes sense as I’m still stuck in the same groove. You know the drill: First I’ll meet with Bruce at Tapistry for $2 TierIII beers and lunch, then off to Greenbush for half-prices Groups A & B beers for Mug-Club members. Yes!
Speaking of Greenbush: There will be an event to raise funds for Laura Campbell, who has been dealing with cancer for the past 15 years. Recently she had been diagnosed and treated for a small cancerous tumor in her brain the result of metastasis. Here are the details, so far, that the organizer of this event, Emily Kamp, has told me.
“Hi Lloyd! Right now the plan is 4-close Tuesday, May 5th. Greenbush will be giving back 50% of our total sales to Scott & Laura to take a family trip to Disney. Posters should be going up Monday or Tuesday. Please help spread the word! Would love to get as many people to come into Greenbush that night as possible
“We’ll also be doing a raffle & money raised for tickets will also go to Scott/Laura… Possibly some t-shirts too”
If you can, please attend this event to help this wonderful woman attain a dream, or two and more.
Wow! Is it Monday already! Where did the weekend go? Oh well, at least Monday is a funday. And why not? $2 TierIII beers at Tapistry followed by Mug-Club specials of 1/2 price groups
A & B beers at Greenbush. Can’t go wrong even on this dreary spring day.
Seems like the weather was too nice, along with Friday!
What the…!? This cold really knocked me for a loop yesterday the main reason this is going up one day late. Nothing really to say, except that I did miss the beer festival at the Blue Chip Casino. Oh well, maybe next year?
Chinooks are transplanted, in addition to the Cascades that Kevin removed from his now temporary home and gave to me. Of course, they are in their own little zone.
And, today is the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War between the states.
