Oh the Side Journey

Half of a trip is getting to the destination and on my way west I keep making all these stops. This time it is to New Glarus Brewing for some beer.  I remember years ago sampling the Spotted Cow while visiting family in La Crosse and being impressed with the taste.  After all these years I finally am at the brewery.


Interesting place and not what I expected.  Huge can’t describe this place.  It is simply massive and when I visited all sorts of construction was going on to expand the facilities.  They are in the top 50 in the nation in terms of beer production so its really quite remarkable.


Tasting room was closed when I arrived but they have pints for sale and it was a beautiful day to be sitting outside in the shade.  Has a weird Mediterranean kinda vibe with all the path ways and weird architecture.  Great visit and I recommend it to everyone.

Nothing’s Rock and Roll like Rock and Roll

Small detour while I was passing Cleveland on my way to Chicago. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is right off the highway. Great afternoon at the museum living rock history. I have definitely lived through some times in rock history let me tell you. 


And whats a stop without beer. Noble Beast Brewing  has a good lunch menu and decent beer. Includes several guest taps. 


Tonight I just have to get to Chicago so I am thankful for my time to relax here in Cleveland.
