Shucks!
Sounds like y'all had a great time!!
Hoot we did have a good time. this is wine country, but they can make some beer! We stopped at another craft beer brew house today and had a yummy pale ale, the wine tour will have to wait for another trip. :-).
I had trouble with a parse error when posting earlier so am adding my Atomic Ale pics now. Too bad you are so far away Hoot.....would have been pleased to treat you and Mrs hoot to a Washington State beer!

Buon Giorno Niquejim,

I had tasted these beers at temperatures you have mentioned ... However, culturally, I am accustomed to really chilled beers ... Especially Mexican Black or Darks ...

I shall take your advice and try it, next time we have cuisine that pairs better with beer or ale ...

Pleased to hear that you brew beer !

Have a Lovely Sunday.
Ciao, Margi.

Well..Thank ye, kindly!!
Mrs Hoot enjoys beer but she just ain't adventuresome when it comes to tryin' the unknown. We do thank y'all for the thought! Who knows.... I always had a hankerin' to lay these old eyes on the Pacific Ocean.
One of these days.....

+1:
50 to 55*F (cellar cool) and consumed in a 60 to 70*F (habitable) environment.

A johnboat is a flat bottomed boat. It can be made from various materials. Mine is aluminum, 14 feet long. Looking at the map, I figger it might take me a few months to get that far. I can't paddle like I used to (I ain't as young as I used to be). I might need to find alternate transportation.

Gators ain't too common in these parts, although I keep hearing there is a gator in Merchant's Millpond down the road a piece, but I haven't been out there to see. I have eaten gator and it's pretty good. Likely farm raised though.
I reckon I won't be wrasslin' any gators. I can shoot center and I ain't gonna be caught without a gun if I go into gator country.
