Coming This Week: March 15th – 22nd

Boy oh boy did we enjoy Virginia, we really always do.  It was sad to leave but Philadelphia awaits us.  We rarely make it to this area, mostly stick to Allentown.  After this we are making out way to Detroit for two weeks worth of shows in the North Suburbs.

Week in Review: We had a morning off last week in Virginia and decided to take in the Virginia Aquarium.  It was great, we both like regional aquariums.  Usually an interesting mix of history and science.  This one did not disappoint and had some unique exhibits, like a Komodo Dragon.

Virginia is For Lovers, Beer Lovers

The saying “Local Beer Tastes Better” is emblazoned across the back of a t-shirt at Blue Mountain Brewing Company. It’s hard to get excited about the love of micro-brewing around here. I’m starting to feel like this is less a philosophy and more of a way of life in Virginia. Each trip we have had to this area has included a visit to at least one local brewery. They have a passion for craft beer that I find unmatched. Most bars prides themselves in the area taps they have available. As we begin our way up the East Coast we are plotting out three landmark stops. Dogfish Head in Delaware, Magic Hat in Vermont and Flying Dog in Maryland; all built during the boom of craft beer and all amazing breweries.

Most of you know we love craft beer, finding delicious and unique placed to imbibe. Visiting a real star of a brewpub makes for great memories.
