Behind The Bar For November 2014

BevBench At The LizardI love beer. Love it. And whiskey. Cause whiskey is awesome.  Hell, come to think of it, I’m a big fan of most liquid libations. I started a project last year where I kept track of  the amount and frequency of my drinking.  I’m calling that project “Behind The Bar”. This post will be updated during the month of November 2014 as I have a night out or a cocktail at home.  Stay tuned!

  1. Smith Home – 11.1.2014
    Knob Creek / Barktoberfest
    Enjoyed a Barktoberfest with dinner after a long day of unpacking.  Doing some work and had a small glass of Knob Creek to celebrate the weekend.
  2. Mom & Dad’s – 11.2.2014
    Perfect Manhattan x 2
    Went to Mom & Dad’s to celebrate Meg’s birthday. Love family dinner regardless of the reason.

    Stopped by the Lizard on the way home to pick up my 2014 Tour Winner’s jacket and simply had to stay for a couple. Had a Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs Of Christmas, a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale (pine cone central) and a Breckenridge Vanilla Porter (glorious).
  12. Magnes’ House – 11.21.2014
