WHEN THIRSTY-THURSDAY MEETS BZNBEERWEEK
Today we've got a great variety of events ranging from goats (yep, I said goats again) to dogs (yep, dog beer will be involved) to Vikings. WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING TODAY? Read below to find out and to get my plan for the evening.
Loy’s IF-I-WERE-YOU Thursday, May 9th plan:
1) I’m spending my morning drinking water and having a good, solid breakfast, because I’m giving blood this morning!! What does this have to do with Craft Beer Week, you ask? Well, each year, the Red Cross does a blood drive during craft beer week and if you donate blood, you get a voucher for a free beer at one of our amazing craft breweries! It’s pint-for-a-pint! :) There may still be spots left, so give them a call.
2) After an afternoon of hydrating to help my body recover from donating blood, I’d head over to the 3rd annual Yappy Hour at Dee-O-Gee. I absolutely LOVE this event, plus it’s a fun excuse to take our pup out and treat him to some well-deserved dog beer (and we usually end up buying him whatever treats he manages to start chewing while we’re not looking - he’s smart like that.)
3) From there, I’d head over to Valhalla Meadery and while I absolutely LOVE dressing up, I’m afraid I don’t own a Viking outfit, so I’ll have to sit out the costume portion of this event. (You get a discount if you come in Viking gear, though, so definitely wear it if you’ve got it!) I’m excited to taste their mead and get a tour of the process. As much as I know about beer, I actually know very little about mead, so I’m looking forward to checking it out!
4) Then I’d wrap up my evening over at Red Tractor Pizza for Beer & Bluegrass, Games & Goats. YEP it’s the second day of Goats in beer week this year, and I’m SO excited to see what this event brings. I don’t really need an excuse to go eat the amazing ‘za at RTP, but during beer week (and on the day I gave blood) you might see me with a full pizza to myself. Don’t judge! I’m just living that BCBW life.
See you out there, friends!
