Happy Tuesday everyone. T Day has arrived again. If you don't know about T Day its when we share some drink photos and stories (and often food and other adventure stories too).
Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog and join in the T Gang fun.
So this week I am going to share some photos from my long weekend adventure to the Finger Lakes Region in New York state.
This area is known for vineyards, and boy were there a lot of them.
There are areas where you could walk for 10 minutes and visit 10 different vineyards. We went to only one and went to a wine tasting. It was actually quite fun.
My brother-in-law bought a few bottles, and that's my husband holding the really big bottle of wine. No, we didn't buy it because that bottle cost $500. I would have been afraid to pick it up.
And no, you don't get enough wine at one of these tastings to actually get tipsy (but probably if you went to several in a row you might), but we were being goofy and decided it would be fun to pretend we had too much to drink around these wine casts.
But we did got to a few breweries and taste some beer. I'm not a big drinker but I do enjoy a pint when the weather is warm.
The breweries would let you purchase a flight, which is 4 or 5 small glasses with samples of the beers you wanted to try. My husband and I split them each time. We even shared with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law so we ended up having a sip or 2 usually.
This particular brewery's beers were not my favorite.
But I did really enjoy the beers at the Grist Iron brewery.
This beer in the photo below was my absolute favorite: Fippeny Apple Graff Ale. I bought 2 growler sizer cans, so when I open these I better have a few friends to share with because these are huge cans with around 4 glasses in each.
But of course it's always nice to have an actual beer with dinner.
Thanks for visiting me today.
