D is for Draw, Boggy

You may remember that as I was composing the list of Denver breweries that I had not visited, it struck me that most of the letters of the alphabet were covered by the beginning letters of the brewery names.

I started with A ... A is for Alpine Dog Brewing Company

Next up was B ... B is for Baere Brewing Company

After B comes C ... C is for Comrade Brewing Company

Are you recognizing a pattern here? ... what comes after C?

D is for Draw, Boggy

2015 Q2 SheppyBrew Stats

As you may know, the Brewery likes to post quarterly updates on how much we have brewed. You can see all these updates (including the one you are reading right now) by following this link:http://blog.ericshepard.com/search/label/Brew%20Stats .

Q1 of 2015 was actually pretty busy at the SheppyBrew Brewery. I brewed five batches:

More McShepardSons

Well, do you remember that I hid a new geocache? If not, see McShepardSons on Independence Mountain.

It has not been getting very many visitors. In fact, after almost 3 weeks, it had only been logged as found once on its online log. There were a couple of entries in the paper log in the cache. It seems weird to me that someone would find the cache and not sign online, but maybe that is just me.



Anyway, while hiking up to the top of Independence Mountain, I thought maybe more people would visit the cache if there were more to find on the way up.

2015 Hail Storm Summer Saison

I brewed my Hail Storm Summer Saison on Sunday.


Hail Storm, is the summer version of my Seasonal Saisons series of beers. It is fairly hoppy, and its ABV is a bit on the low end of saisons stylistically. It is pretty light in color. Obviously, it is brewed in Summer. I will drink it in summer. Other than that, there is nothing really making this a summer saison versus a Spring, Autumn, or Winter saison.

It is pretty much the same recipe as last year's Summer Saision, except this year I used Tettnang hops instead of Styrian Goldings.

Mt Rushmore Pictures 2015

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you may remember that in the summer of 2013, the Sheppy family visited South Dakota.

See Badlands National Park PicturesSouth Dakota Six PackMt Rushmore Pictures,

We did it again this year. This time, instead of meeting my wife's family, we met my sister and her family.

Of course when you go to South Dakota with a bunch of kids ... one of the things you have to do is visit Mount Rushmore. So we did.

McShepardSons on Independence Mountain

I placed what I hope will be the Sheppy Family's third geocache.

McShepardSons on Independence Mountain

It is currently submitted for review. The only thing that would prevent it from being published is any multi-stage caches that have one of the steps in the area. Unfortunately, I have no way of knowing where all those might be unless I find every multi-cache that might be anywhere close to this area. I didn't see any multi-caches particularly close, so I think my chances are pretty good.

June in RMNP Part 2

It is my sister's birthday. Happy Birthday, Mrs. Bluefield.


Well, I told you in June in RMNP Part 1 to expect more pictures ... and here they are ...


Our second full day was one of hiking in the lower parts of the park, close to our camp site.

We started out down the Fern Lake Trail, on our way to Fern Falls.
