Peace out, San Francisco! ✌🏽Thanks for the birthday pre-funk. #BEER

I'd like to thank @fourbarrelcoffee for 1) serving espresso in such beautiful ceramics and 2) giving me the fuel to get through an action packed day of beer judging. 90ish beers for @goodfoodawards! Someone get me a martini. #gfablindtasting #goodfoodawards #fourbarrel #craftbeer

Golden hour with wonderful women, regal dogs, delicious food, and as if that weren't enough, this beer.✨#craftbeer #beer #instabeer #beerstagram #oregonbeer #littlebeast #wheatbeer #cicerone #mybeeryear
