Here begins Octoberfest, the month long celebration of my birthday!
We joined up with Faith + Tate
And Alex + Eric
For a trip to the Blue Mountain Brewery "Steal the Stein" day (if you buy a beer in a stein glass, you get to keep the glass!)
Totally gorgeous setting. One of the things I love most about Cville is that drive just FIVE MINUTES from the city limits and you’re in the most beautiful countryside you could imagine!
We started with a taster (of course)
Mmmmm 6 little beers just for me!
I liked the Wheat, Octoberfest and Nelson but didn’t care for the rest too much
But they sure went down fast!
We ordered giant pretzels with mustard for an appetizer
Little Finn LOVED the beer!! (Kidding….kidding..)
My six-pack taster went down so fast I ordered an Octoberfest [for the stein!!]
The brewery is also a restaurant, so we ordered some dinner.
Salads to start
And pizza to finish!
The veggie pizza with shrooms, squash, goat cheese and loads of cilantro. Tasted like my cilantro pesto!
I think I had three of these!?
We concluded the evening with a blind tasting. The 6 tasters. 3 drinkers. One guess. Faith was the moderator!
Matt and I thought we were head on, but turns out Tate killed us!! I swear I had them right!!
‘Twas a fun night. Except for the fact that I had to call for Matt to confiscate my lantern full of Biscoff cookies because I already had 3 packets for dessert!!
Tomorrow starts bright an early with a huge fitness venture. My post might be delayed, but it’s for a fun reason!
