Happy Birthday: 50 + a day!
Since we are a day late we are getting you a cake with a card for a free colonoscopy!

We love you man!
Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

+one week today. Thanks all. So far so good. Went to Ashville, NC for bday/beer trip. Too many good beers to list. Visited all sizes of breweries. They must have some pretty lax laws as it seems like you can brew/serve in just about any place. Visited a true nano with only two of their own beers on tap. Blichman pots and Electric Brewer controls. Seriously my equipment is bigger and probably more sophisticated than theirs. We all know that the equipment is not the driving factor - you can make great beer in just about anything....and they did.

High Wire and Wicked Weed are two must visit places in my book. Spent they better part of a day at Sierra Nevada OMeffingG! That place was amazing. I've probably been on 30 or more brewery tours. This place is like a pharmaceutical lab built around a brewery. Amazing set up. Tons of historical brewing equipment. Hands down best tour for knowledge/length/depth/tastings/etc. A MUST see before you die. Super echo-friendly and sustainable too. The tap house is equally great.

Yah. Sierra Nevada is tres cool. Won a tour and a steak dinner for 4 there at a fundraising auction last spring. We had a blast. Most impressive.

Ha I was looking into going to Ashville with the family around my 50th next March, I was going to combine Golf and Brewery tours into the mix. My Kids Spring break is the last week of March and we have some good friends near there.

You will love it. Grove Park Inn looked to have a killer course too. We stayed the first night there then got a loft right down town. Grove Park Inn is super cool. I really liked it. I'd need a second mortgage if I were going to stay there a week....never mind the golf the spa has a $500 facial. :shock: :shock: Needless to say the girls were not allowed near that place :wink:

I went fly fishing a few weeks ago by Biltmore off the French Broad River; but did not get to visit any breweries. I now wish I had stayed longer.

I work with a guy that is a big fly fisher and huge NC fan. He said the French Broad River is one of the best...I also think the Sierra Nevada property is on that River. You were so close.
