Apricot Lovin' American Wheat

One of the important logistic considerations in the SheppyBrew Brewing Schedule is that there are two beer drinkers in the house.

It just so happens that one of the people, the SheppyBrew Beer Model, does not always like the beers that the Brew Master likes to drink. The Brew Master, of course, has his favorite styles, but will drink and enjoy just about any beer style.

The SheppyBrew Beer Model has a much narrower focus. Anything too bitter and anything with too much roasted or coffee flavor is out. She also has random aversions to certain beers which she cannot articulate.

And so, the brewing schedule has to factor in taking the time to make beers that the woman of the house wants on tap.

Random South Dakota Pictures

You may remember that my family met my sister's family in South Dakota this year. I posted Mt Rushmore Pictures 2015, totally intending to post more pictures soon after that post. I never really got around to it, but here are some more random pictures from that trip...

One of the first things we did was visit Jewel Cave National Monument and took a cave tour.

E is for Epic Brewing Company

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? ... D is for Draw, Boggy (I took a little artistic licence to change Boggy Draw into Draw, Boggy)

As you may or may not have figured out ... it is time for E

I always think of Epic Brewing Company as a Utah brewery. The Denver location is relatively new.
