Beer, beer and more beer
We went to Asheville NC this past weekend, in part for me to report about the craft beer scene that's gotten so huge there in recent months. The city was voted Beer City USA 2010 in an online poll, beating out longtime winner Portland OR. My husband did most of the tasting/drinking, since I don't have much appreciation for the stuff. Here are a few photos of the breweries we sampled. Lexington Avenue Brewery -- top photo. Thirsty Monk (specializes in Belgian beers) -- middle photo. Highland Brewery -- the area's largest, which gives guided tours. I'll post about our best dining experience soon. Meanwhile, the cocktail I had that evening is at right, the Vanderbilt Martini.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
